How do I use socks5 proxy without having PuTTY open?
I set up a socks5 proxy using this tutorial:
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?
