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. Now all your skype traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel on 184.106.69.136

On Linux/MAC

Open tunnel by doing

Rest is identical to Windows above.
