proxy. When you connect to a server through a proxy, what IP does it
appear to the server that you're connecting from? The proxy, or the
client? My ISP will only allow access to their usenet servers from one
of their dynamically assigned IP's so I normally just forward a port
through my home PC. When I try to do it with SOCKS5 though, I get a
connection refused message. I'm trying to figure out if it's because
I've configured something wrong or because the usenet server is seeing
the client's address.
Here's my setup:
Cygwin SSH server running on home machine.
On the client I run "ssh -N -D 9090 email@example.com"
In the application (Thunderbird) I set up the connection as Manual Proxy
Configuration, SOCKS5 Host = localhost, port = 9090".
Is that correct?

The ssh server's address. You can experiment with a web browser
using socks to your tunnel and looking at http://whatismyip.com/ for
instance to verify this.
Looks reasonable. Might try 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost, and might
try socks4 instead of 5.
For usenet access like this, since nntp is pretty nicely confined to
one port and destination, I use static port forwarding instead. -D is
handiest with web browsing and IM in my experience.
