I'm guessing your using windows to connect to the the SSH box???? How are you connected to your ssh tunnel? If you doing it through puTTY then you have to go under ssh under connection and add the tunnel and then connect ssh to the box or setup a batch script with:

putty -D 8080 -P 22 -ssh homeIP

-D is for the dynamic tunnel on 8080

-P is the port

-ssh well lets just say you should know what that is

and homeIP is another one of those self explanatory guys

A little more info in your posts would be nice, like how your trying to connect, what OS is the box connecting running?
