I read the many tutorials on how to tunnel traffic via putty and configure Firefox to access web via that tunnel (Windows desktop). The steps are simple: (A) set connection with dynamic ssh-tunnel at port, say 1010. (B) configure Firefox to use Socks5 at localhost:1010.
This solution used to work for me in the past, but for some reason does not work anymore. I get a page saying "The connection was reset... Try again"
To diagnose the problem, I downloaded curl utility for windows and then run this from command line:
curl -socks5 localhost:1010 www.google.com
It returned a valid HTML code of that page. So the problem is not at the putty side, but rather something in FF.
I also tried the solution proposed in here using chrome and didn't manage to get it work.
Does anyone has idea how to solve this out ?
