putty.exe -D 9999 <username>@<IP of your target host>
putty.exe -D 9999 email@example.com
<== 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
and switch on "Display Technical Call Info".
Open tunnel by doing
ssh -D 9999 <username>@<IP of your target host>
Rest is identical to Windows above.
