    ssh doe snot provide HTTP, only SOCKS
    privoxy can be installed on your own computer and used as entry for the putty tunnel

    Open putty
    go to:
    connection / SSH / Tunnels
    Select:Dynamic
    Select a local port of your choice
    Destination 127.0.0.1
    Click on Add
    Connect to the SSH server

    Configure privoxy, your browser or whatever you wanna use to use SOCKS on 127.0.0.1 and the port you specified above (as example 10000)

    hope that helps

    thank you but i already have done that

    my question is how to link another proxy to it so after it connects through the ssh server its routed to another proxy

    i was thinking set up firefox to point to a socks or http proxy, then have proxy firewall point it to privoxy, and have privoxy point to my ssh proxy that i made with putty

    install privoxy on your local PC and make it connect through your SSH socks
    then point firefox at privoxy
    that's the usual way

    thank you but that is basically what i am doing now

    i guess i wasnt clear enough, what i am asking is how to proxy chain 2 or more proxys with one being a ssh local connection to a remote server

    Ok you can see your SSH connection like any socks proxy, it's just one more.

    There is a free socks server, at 3proxy.ru.
    Opensource and pretty easy to use and configure.

    It also has the ability to chain proxies as far as I remember and can see from the website.

    Maybe it's worth a test ?

    There's a free software out called ProxyChains. I believe that is whart you're trying to do, is chain together multiple proxies. This can be done. Typically, depending on the network layer at which your proxy sits, chaining together proxies is as easy as selecting a proxy within your application, and using a VPN, for instance.
