Re: Remote Tunneling with PuTTY
i am sure that your school blocks port 22 (i.e. that's why the connection was refused) - so the request never reached your home computer. Also, the gateway feature of ssh is still experimental (as far as i know at least)... i've never gotten it to work myself either - the forwarding is usually only good for one destination redirect - not for the entire internet.
What you need to do is run the ssh-server at your home on port 80 or 443, and then figure out how the redirect-gateway works with putty - simple forwarding is not enough here...
i don't think this is going to work... at all...
