    Hi,
    At a friend's place, their ISP suddenly stopped outgoing port 80 traffic
    due to their misconfigured firewall. I suggested,
    ssh -2 -C -L 1082:127.0.0.1:3128 <a remote server ip with
    squid installed>

    This got one machine on net. But the for rest they would have to do the
    same. So they tried this on 192.168.10.1,
    ssh -2 -C -L 1082:192.168.10.1:3128 <a remote server ip with squid>

    where 192.168.10.1 is their default Linux gateway/proxy (squid).

    Now I thought that just by changing their proxy port in all windows
    browsers from 192.168.10.1:3128 to 192.168.10.1:1082 everyone can have
    net access, but apparently it didn't work out.

    What is the reason for this? Can someone explain why the second part did
    not work while the first did?

    With warm regards,
    -Payal
