    Hi!

    If I set up a SOCKS proxy using PUTTY the same way I did in Vista, it doesn't work. I let PUTTY through the firewall, I have no ideas besides that.

    Settings: PUTTY/Tunnels: D8080
    Explorer/Chrome: proxy: 127.0.0.1:8080

    These setting were fine under Vista, but nothing loads in Win7 :(

    I am sorry, if this problem has been discussed before, but I did not find any information on this topic in the forum (or on the net).

    TIA,
    umiki

    It turned out, that I was not careful enough when applying settings, the socks proxy had to be set separately in the advanced section. Since then it works fine.
