Shell Tunnel Issues


I’ve noticed that as of today I’m unable to use the Dynamic socks option to tunnel data via the dreamhost shell.

I’ve previously used this to circumvent my employer’s rather strict firewall.

eg, ssh username@domain -D 1080

Now when I try to do this the shell connection drops out after a few seconds of use, has anyone else experienced this problem? or general instability with the shell server? (its been dropping out a little bit even when not used in this way).[hr]
I just realised theres a nice article on the wiki explaining my setup

I’ve used this method for some time, however now it is failing when I use a dreamhost server. My other privately rented non-dh servers are working fine.
