I have just set up a Cygwin SSH server and successfully tunneled to it from a remote location. Logging in works but when I point my browser to localhost 8888 (sock 5), all connections are refused.
How is it that I can log in, then not browse from a remote location? Could it be to do with port forwarding on my router? (currently have 22 forwarded to the SSH server machine).
- I can SSH into the server on the local machine and successfully browse.
- I am connecting remotely with
ssh -D 8888 email@example.com -vv
- Server is Windows and client is OSX (terminal)
Edit: Frustratingly, without knowingly changing anything on the server local tunnel proxying has stopped working. Both clients now connect and accept the password before
debug1: Exit status 1
