Why are you using ssh to do local port forwarding (127.0.0.1) - or was
that just an example?
The proper syntax would be:
ssh 1080:friends.server.com:3128 payal
And, you must set this up so that user "payal" can login without a
password via ssh to server "friends.server.com". This is easily done
following the step-by-step instructions also found in our archives
Once that is up and running, you can connect to local port 1080 and it
will act as though you are a local user on friends.server.com attaching
to port 3128.
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
