I set up a socks5 proxy using this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-route-web-traffic-securely-without-a-vpn-using-a-socks-tunnel
I connect to the proxy by entering “localhost” and the port in Firefox and it connects, but it closes everytime I close PuTTY. I want to use this proxy somewhere else using the IP and Proxy, how do I make it stay active when I close PuTTY?
