Choose a guide depending on your operating system

MAC OS X / Linux

Simply open a terminal and type:

ssh -l {USERNAME} -p 41069 -D 6666 {USERNAME}.cloud.seedboxes.cc

It will ask for your password, you type the password and click enter. Once you login, minimize the window, but don't close it.

Now, open your browser, and in your browser connections details, use a socks5 proxy with the following details:

  • hostname: localhost
  • port: 6666

As long as the terminal is open, you will be connected to your seedbox.

  1. From the Session section, add your seedboxes host name of your server, and the SSH Port you will find in SFTP/SSH Access in your seedbox client area. file
  2. Navigate to Connection > SSH > Tunnels.
  3. In source port, enter a port number of your choice between 1025 - 65536. Then select Dynamic radio button and click Add Button.
  4. Go back to Sessions and add a name under Saved Sessions. Click Save. file
  5. Click the Open button to establish the connection.
  6. Enter your username and server password to log in.

Same as in MAC OS X/ Linux, open your browser, and in your browser connections details, use a socks5 proxy with the following details:

  • hostname: localhost
  • port: {PORT NUMBER YOU CHOSE in step 3, 1234 in this case}
