5190:login.icq.com:5190 me@remotehost), but am unable to authenticate.
The connection to the ICQ server is established, as witnessed by my
account being kicked off if I login from another computer using the same
UIN. I then get reports of "Socket problems", and disconnect.
If I replace remotehost with localhost, it works fine, and if I set the
tunnel termination as the gateway server that also works fine. So I'm
assuming that there's something that ICQ does that puts an originating
IP into the packet, and by forwarding through another host the ICQ
server sees mismatched IP addresses.
So my question is, is there a way around this? Has anyone successfully
forwarded ICQ off a NAT'd network through a tunnel to a remote server?

Re: Problem tunneling ICQ over SSH
ICQ does need a complex configuration. So you have to setup a SOCKS5 proxy
instead of a single port forward.
Try the newest PuTTY version with a dynamic tunnel by using a SOCKS5 proxy.
I think this may be the easiest configuration (needs only ICQ and PuTTY) to
get it running through all NAT firewalls with at least one open TCP port.
