I have a SSH tunnel from my Windows machine using Bitvise Tunneliser, to my remote FC4 VPS. I can browse the net with the FC4 VPS's public IP address no problem when I set the browsers to socks 127.0.0.1 port 1080.
However is it possible to use other apps say DC++ and use the FC4 VPS IP address,
Thus being a secure link between the windows machine and the VPS ??
I have tried setting up DC++ connection settings but I am not sure which remote / local port to forward and what destinations.... ??? Also whether to use client-to-server or server-2-client port forwarding, all gets a bit complicated.
Thanks for your help.
