I think what you are describing here is called dynamic port forwarding. This feature is already on our "To Do" list. It may become available in a future version. (The version at the time of this writing is v9.3.1)

Yes, the Chilkat SshTunnel class/object supports both HTTP and SOCKS proxies.

i know it supports http and socks proxies to connect to something, but can a ssh tunnel act as a socks on a forwarded local port? so if i put 127.0.0.1:1000 in my browser manual proxy configuration at the socks host can it act as a normal proxy?
