So I'm on Mac on OSX 10.4, using Azureus. I signed up for a shell account at sdf.lonestar.org I've read the tutorial on the site, but everything there is for Windows based computers to use a program like Putty. I'm merely firing up my terminal and attempting to do SSH from the command line. I'm basing my actions around this guide: http://whalesalad.com/2006/08/27/tunneling-bittorrent-over-ssh/ ... but I have a slight problem. Here is the command line I'm using right now: Davids-iMac-G5:~ david$ ssh -p 443 [email protected] -D 7777 [email protected]'s password: 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" Host: localhost Port: 7777 Incoming TCP listen port: 7777 Incoming UDP listen port: 7777 Any unix/linux geeks out there who can help?
