Finally.. I had to change to tunnel settings from within Putty. I had to check the bubbles Dynamic and IPv4; works fine now. Thanks for looking into this. All the best.

I know it`s running becaus: $ net start sshd The requested service has already been started. After restarting the service I was able to ssh localhost, but still getting "proxy server not accepting connections" when trying to browse from my other laptop.

Uhm..when I try to ssh localhost I get: ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused. sshd is up and running, any idea why am I getting connection refused?

Hi Michael. Thank you for your answer, but Im not sure I follow... Ive already got a sshd at the remote end and I managed to ssh to it. And then I`ve set-up the SOCKS tunnel with ssh -D, but "the proxy server is refusing connections" when I try to browse from my other laptop. Not sure what to do. Thank you for your time.
