I have an ssh tunnel set up to my server at home. I bring it up using the following:
ssh -p 22 -D 1080 firstname.lastname@example.org
It works fine, and if I tell firefox to use localhost port 1080 in the connection settings I get connectivity.
What I am trying to do is use tsocks so that I can route other programs through this tunnel. I installed tsocks from the Ubuntu repositories using apt-get. I have set up the following in /etc/tsocks.conf:
local = 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0
local = 10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0
server = 127.0.0.1
server_port = 1080
server_type = 5
However when I run:
tsocks google-chrome or
There is no connectivity.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?
Many thanks for your help.
