    Is it possible to SSH Tunnel thru a Tomato Router to use Skype?

    Any info on how to do this?

    Nevermind I found this:
    Seems easy enough :)

    But I don't need to setup port forwarding or anything???

    Can someone help me with this please?
    I am confused by this:

    No where on there does it mention port forwarding, wouldn't I need to forward the ports for this to work properly, or does the fact that putty (SSH) remains open mean that all the traffic actually flows thru my Remote SSH port?

    I use skype with my Tomato router on default settings. I do not need to port forward or tunnel anything, it works fine like it is. The skype client connects to the network from inside the firewall. Have you tried running skype already on the regular router settings ?

    I never said Skype doesn't work for me.
    It actually works perfectly.

    But what I am trying to do is Tunnel Skype Traffic thru SSH Tunnel, which also works fine... I am just confused how it works to simply, w/o having to port forward anything?
    Is it because of SOCKS or is it because of Putty/SSH already auto-port-forwarding?
