Blog.FastSSH.com — PingTunnel is a tool that allows to send packets to a proxy server using ICMP (ping protocol). The proxy server then reassembles the TCP/UDP traffic and forwards it to its intended destination via ICMP traffic for forwarding. Pingtunnel allows TCP network connections to remote hosts using ICMP ECHO Requests and Reply Packets, or commonly known as ping requests & replies. Here is an overview of How to Combine PingTunnel with SSH on Windows works:
In principle ptunnel a.k.a ping tunnel proxy is the same as ssh tunnel. Why? because that ptunnel also uses an ssh proxy, it’s just that ptunnel uses the icmp package for ssh connections.
How to Combine PingTunnel with SSH
Please follow these steps to use PingTunnel With SSH on PC / Computer.
1. Create a Pingtunnel Account
To create a Pingtunnel account, you can visit the website www.howdy.id then select the Bypass & Tunnels menu
Check im not a robot. Wait a few seconds until there is a tick, then click show server.
Wait a few seconds, then the pingtunnel account will appear.

Then check the recaptcha column and click the “Create Account” button as shown below
Wait a while then the ssh account will appear.
3. Setting And Connecting PingTunnel
Above you have downloaded the pingtunnel application for windows and have created a pingtunnel account on the Howdy.id site and created an ssh account on the fastssh.com site, so now is the time to set and run the Pingtunnel application
Download Pingtunnel at the following github link:
Select pingtunnel_windows.zip, adjust to windows OS (32bit or 64bit)
Extract the archivepingtunnel file earlier
Open Command Prompt (cmd), search on the start menu “cmd” then right click and run as admin
Enter the command “cd” then add the path/directory of the pingtunnel.exe file that was extracted earlier
Example: cd C:\Pingtunnel
Then add the following command:
pingtunnel.exe -type client -l :4455 -s [server-ip] -t [server-ip]:4455 -sock5 1 -key [key]
*Change [server-ip] and [key] based on the Pingtunnel Server information from the pingtunnel account that you created earlier.
* Make sure no letters, numbers, symbols or spaces are more or less
After that, execute the command by pressing ENTER, if there is a Windows Security Alert Pop Up, click Allow Access.
LEAVE THE PINGTUNNEL OPEN AND DO NOT CLOSE!
4. SSH Account Settings and Connect Bitvise SSH Application
After running pingtunnel earlier, it’s time to combine pingtunnel and SSH
Download BitviseSSH at the following link:
Download and then install the Bitvise SSH application, tick I agree to accept all the terms of this license agreement
After that, open the Bitvise SSH application via a desktop shortcut or start menu
Enter the SSH Host, Username and Password that you just created into the Bitvise SSH Client that you installed in the tutorial above.
For Port use port 22 (openssh)
After that click the proxy settings menu, check Use proxy, then fill in server 127.0.0.1, Port 4455, and use Proxy Type SOCKS5
After that enter the Services Menu, Check Enabled. Then fill in listen interfaces 127.0.0.1. and listen port 1080
And finally click Log in, wait for the process to finish, if there is a message Authentication completed, then bitvise ssh has been successfully connected
LEAVE BITVISESSH OPEN AND DO NOT CLOSE OR LOG OUT
5. Run the Proxifier App
First of all, download the proxifier application via the link below:
Select Proxifier Standard Edition v4
Install the proxy that was downloaded earlier.
Once installed, open the proxifier via a shortcut on the desktop or in the startmenu
Note: Proxifier is a paid application, for trial use only 30 days, but you can use the license code from fastssh below:
Username : Fastssh.com
Use one of the keys above
Double click the Proxifier icon on the taskbar or right click then Open Proxifier
In the proxifier application, click the Profile menu and then click Proxy Server
Click the Add menu, then on the Proxy Server menu, address contents 127.0.0.1, Port 1080 and Protocol select SOCKS Version 5 (SOCKS5). Then click OK
Then test browsing in the browser, see if the traffic on the proxifier is running.
If the traffic proxifier is already running, then pingtunnel and ssh are connected
To make sure again whether it is connected correctly you can open the MyIP.id site to check your IP address.
Done. That’s the tutorial How to Combine PingTunnel with SSH on Windows.
