SSH question

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a SSH connection to my home so I can simply tunnel

Firefox and Thunderbird traffic through a SOCKS v5.

I'm currently using Plink because I think the GUI in Putty is unnecessary.

The command I'm using is: user@ip -P 9393 -D 8585

So the dynamic port I'll be using in Firefox is 8585.

My question is, do I need to port forward 8585? And if, TCP or UDP?

And is 9393 a TCP or UDP port?

You don't need (and doing so wouldn't help) to forward 8585 as that will be going through the tunnel. SSH connections use TCP.

Great.

Thank you for the quick answer!
