If I use putty and set up an ssh connection to a remote server through a proxy, and then install a networking application like for example uTorrent, and then tunnle uTorrent through this ssh connection, how would I access uTorrent's web interface what ip should I use? Is it at all possible?

Edit: What I want to do is: I have a pc behind a firewall with a fast internet connection (30MB/s). On this pc I am running a uTorrent. I have ssh'ed and tunnled utorrent to connect through the vps. I want to be able to remotely administarte uTorrent through it's web admin interface. How would I access the web ui through the vps.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It's possible, it's called SSH Tunnelling. Here are some instructions. Basically, to access the web interface, you type in the local ip and port, and set up the port to be forwarded.

Almost there, it just in that tutorial the client is ssh'ing to server running the application you are trying to access, what I want to do is ssh the pc running the service to a remote vps, and then access this application/service through the vps – Jiraiya-Sama Jul 12 '11 at 6:52
