Help with tunneling Torrent traffic over SSH?
Hi all. I'm having some problems tunneling my Torrent traffic with Azureus using Mac OSX 10.4. I recently signed up for a shell account with full privledges @ sdf.lonestar.org.
I'm on somewhat of a Unix command newbie, so please try not to laugh my novice questions.
I've read the SSH tutorial on the SDF site, but everything there is for Windows based computers to use a program like Putty. I'm merely firing up a Terminal window and attempting to do SSH from the command line.
... but I have a slight problem. Here is the command line I'm using right now:
Davids-iMac-G5:~ david$ ssh -p 443 [username][at]tty.freeshell.org -D 7777
Last login: Fri Sep 21 17:33:50 2007 from c-71-202-214-19
Then once I fire up my Azureus client, I see this error when I start to announce to the tracker:
$ channel 3: open failed: connect failed: No route to host
These are my settings in Azureus:
"Enable proxying of tracker communications" and "I have a SOCKS proxy"
Incoming TCP listen port: 7777
Incoming UDP listen port: 7777
So what do I do next?

Update: It may be an issue with my D-Link router. I plugged the computer directly into my modem and was able to make the SSH connection work properly. Now how do I get it to work *with* the router?
