This question already has an answer here:

Given Windows 7 I want to tunnel all its network traffic through SSH, without manually tunnelling each port. It's easy on Linux, but I couldn't find any hint on how to do this on Windows ): So, any hint on how this can be done on Windows 7?

As far as I know, there's no easy way in Windows to change all applications' proxies at once. Many programs use the settings of IE though. – Dennis Jul 30 '12 at 19:49
Hmm after thinking more about it: Shouldn't I be able to use VPN and tunnel this over SSH? – Jul 30 '12 at 20:08
You can do that, but SSH VPNs aren't as good as "normal" (PPTP) VPNs. Here's a complete setup guide for the latter. – Dennis Jul 30 '12 at 20:21
Use the dynamic forwarding feature of SSH (-D option, opens a local SOCKS server) then setup a proxifier. This will however only work for TCP and not UDP or anything else. – Ambroz Bizjak Jul 31 '12 at 8:53
But... then SSH gets tunneled over SSH and your computer explodes! (results may vary) – Zeb McCorkle Nov 11 '14 at 1:40

Don't do this. SSH uses TCP, so you end up with a TCP over TCP problem.

Thanks, interesting. Guess I should use OpenVPN (already uses TLS) instead of VPN over SSh. – Jul 30 '12 at 20:21
