[Q] Putty on Windows RT and SSH port forwarding

I am wondering if the version of putty published by Netham45:

Has the port forwarding capability enabled

I tried doing the following:

  • Jailbreaked my tablet
  • Ran Putty
  • configured port forwarding: added port 3128 to forward to webproxy.myemployer.org (it's just an example), following the instructions
  • Used putty confugured as indicated to connect to the remote server
  • Configured proxy options in Internet Explorer to localhost and port 3128
  • Followed the instructions (do not use the square brackets in the key names, or the batch will fail) to create a batch file that copies the proxy settings from internet explorer and activates it system-wide
  • Ran the batch as admin
  • Verified through regedit that the settings have been copied and ProxyEnable was = 1
  • Tried to connect to my intranet using the desktop and metro versions of Internet Explorer 10

However, the connection was unsuccessful

I use ConnectBot in Android to do the port forwarding and it works without any issue

So, I was thinking that:

  • Maybe Putty RT was compiled without port forwarding support (which would make it almost useless given that the SSH in the store can do most of what Putty can)
  • I have made a mistake along the way

Since I am a new user I cannot ask in the Putty thread. Of course, this is not a general putty question. It is very specific to Windows RT and the only place to ask is at xda-developers.com
