Tunneling HTTP/DNS through SSH – Part 2 – Windows

As a follow-up to my previous post (Tunneling HTTP/DNS through SSH) I will show you how can create a SOCKS proxy with Putty for Windows.

1. You must create a session, enter your hostname or IP address with port and give it a name like „forwarding“:

Create a Profile / Session
Create a Profile / Session

2.  To speed up your tunnel establishment you can enable auto-login for your username, e.g. „root“. This only eliminate username prompt and you must always enter your password.

Enable Auto-Login
Enable Auto-Login

3. Enable compression for your tunnel 😉

Enable compression
Enable compression

4. Then you must add your local source port „D8080“ for Port 8080.

Set local port
Set local port

5. Save your session again and open it!

Save your Session
Save your Session

6. After you entered your password you should see an open port on your host (german windows edition):

Check your local port
Check your local port

7. Thats it!  Now you can change your SOCKS proxy settings to locahost:8080, as described in my previous post.
