Do Compression and CompressionLevel apply to Dynamic port forwardings (socks5) ?
Version: OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu6, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009
I would like to use socks5 with compression on a slow WAN line.
I use this command : ssh -p 51001 -C -o "CompressionLevel 9" -g -D <ip-of-this-machine>:51001 root@<remote-machine>
Generally this works but I notice there is no difference in speed
if I use CompressionLevel 1 compared tho CompressionLevel 9.
Does compression work with Dynamic port forwarding at all ?
