Here’s the deal:
The user is on a firewalled machine which allows port 4480 out to **specific** IP addresses.
There is an SSHD set up on one of these IP addresses. Putty is being used to open an SSH connection, but also as a dynamic port forwarder. For all intents an purposes, this is just a simple old HTTP proxy (except with added encryption). We’ve tried with a regular HTTP proxy (Proxy+, squid, etc) to no avail.
Everything loads just fine, even the chat application… but the chat, once loaded, will not connect. I understand that the chat runs on port 5222, but I’m curious to know if it has something to do with the flash **player** having proxy settings or not.
Any help is appreciated.
Further investigation revealed that “most” proxies route only HTTP traffic (stateless TCP connections). If I recall correctly, the type of tunneling I’m doing is similar to that of a VPN, which shouldn’t hold any judgement to stateful TCP connections, which is what the flash player uses.
Still looking for help, however.

It might help in your situation. I am not fully understanding your setup, but since you are already using putty, it might just be as easy as adding a new tunnel.
