I don't have any TDE/KDE3 installations in front of me (and it's been
awhile), and I've never done any proxying or ssh tunnels, so I don't
know if you can do this, but is it possible to set it up as a regular
proxy without SOCKS? I think you may just need to enter your port
(without localhost), or enter your localhost user name and password
that you did the ssh from (e.g. the user that executed ssh, not the
user being connected to, though you can always try the user being
ssh'ed to).
