MSN proxy with ssh using Pidgin

If your company blocked MSN port and you have accessable server out of your company, use it as a proxy with ssh -D option.

Set tunnel with '>ssh -D 1234 yourserveraddress.com'.
(You can use any port number instead of 1234.)

Set proxy option in your pidgin.
Host : localhost
Port : 1234

That's all. Have fun.
