How to channel skype through a SOCKS proxy

On this page... (hide)

  1. 1. On Windows
  2. 2. On Linux/MAC

1.  On Windows

Do:

 putty.exe -D 9999 <username>@<IP of your target host>

e.g.

 putty.exe -D 9999 root@203.1.113.55 

<== just an example IP :)

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

You are done. Now all your skype traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel to your remote host.

If you are interested in the performance of skype, go to

Options-->Advanced

and switch on "Display Technical Call Info".

2.  On Linux/MAC

Open tunnel by doing

 ssh -D 9999 <username>@<IP of your target host> 

Rest is identical to Windows above.
