What Iīm trying to accomplish is to setup a proxy at home so I can use it at work to get around the proxy they have that blocks almost all web-content, they also have a firewall that I believe doesnīt allow traffic through port 22

I have searched alot, since I am an intermediate user, & English is my second language, I have had a little problem finding an easy to read guide.

I have tried openSSH, Iīve installed it then
created a group:

mkgroup -l >> etc\group
mkpasswd -l -u %username% >> etc\passwd
net start opensshd

That all seems fine.

Then I Downloaded Putty,

- I wrote my ip-adress on host
- picked SSH encryption

- On SSH tunnels i forwarded sourceport 80 - localhost:8080 ,443 - localhost:8081 & 1080 - localhost:1080
(according to some setup guide I found)

- First i tried port 22 (it worked fine) I can connect and through the putty prompt I get to write my login & pass then it works..

Then i Tried to change to port 443 which didnīt work, then tried 80 which also refused.

What happens when setup at those ports is that the putty promt that are suppose to ask for login % pass just goes empty.. I wonder Why?

************************************************** ********************
My connection is LAN through fiber, i havenīt got any router or NAT device in front. & I havenīt got any software firewalls or even the windows firewall on.

Using Windows XP-SP3

Can someone point me to a guide that is easy to understand or explain to me what i might be doing wrong when i try to connect through port 443 & canīt get it to work?

Would really aprociate if someone took the time.. Thanx!!
