I am trying to use my server as a "proxy" with ssh. However, setting up tunneling with
ssh -D localhost:8000 user@myserver
does not work.
I tested this on various machines with ssh and putty - It connects just fine, but when I set my browser settings accordingly, I just get an error "Connection has been reset".
I tried monitoring the traffic with wireshark, but I didn't even see some tunnel-traffic.
I explicitly set
AllowTcpForwarding to "yes" but I still can't use the tunnel.
When running ssh in verbose mode, I don't get any errors but
debug1: Connection to port 8000 forwarding to socks port 0 requested. debug1: channel 3: new [dynamic-tcpip] debug1: channel 3: free: dynamic-tcpip, nchannels 4
What am I doing wrong?
