What’s Socks? Here’s fast introduction about that
- Double-click Putty.exe to open.
- Click “Session” from the left side of Putty. Here you will enter the details of the forwarding server you are connecting to
- Enter the address of the VPS that is running SSH in the “Host Name” field and the port number in the “Port” field.
- Select “Connection” then “SSH” then “Tunnels”.
- Enter the port number you wish to use as the local port into the “Source Port” field for example 123. This is the port that you will connect to using the program you wish to tunnel with, and cannot be in use by any other application

- Click “OK” twice.

Now you are ready to go.
