!How to channel skype through a SOCKS proxy

!!On Windows

* Download putty.
* Open a command line.
* Go to directory where you put putty.

Do:

putty.exe -D 9999 root@184.106.69.136

(
The port for the SOCKS tunnel is your own choice - use something that isnt needed for other services.
In this exmaple, i chose 9999
)

* Enter password in the dialogue that comes up
* Leave that window open - you now have a tunnel running.


* Open skype.
* Go to Options-->Advanced-->Connections
* Choose SOCKS5 proxy in the dropdown menu.
* Host: localhost
* Port: 9999 (or whatever port you have chosen above)

* Quit and restart skype.

You are done.
