I tried this :

ssh -ND 9999 username@home_router_ip_address

and this is output :

“nani@jebe-kevu-ovaj-PC:~$ ssh -ND 999 nani@nani.homelinux.com
Privileged ports can only be forwarded by root.
nani@jebe-kevu-ovaj-PC:~$ sudo ssh -ND 999 nani@nani.homelinux.com
[sudo] password for nani:

RSA key fingerprint is 7c:ce:72:cd:10:15:5a:e3:1a:b9:5c:b8:f0:82:3f:d0.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

Using a socks proxy tunnel is only partially anonymous. The DNS data cannot pass through the proxy and is therefore trackable.

As to your question, the first password request is locally for your "sudo" command. The second password request is to grant you access to the remote machine.
