Problem solved:
Code:
sshpass -p "*******" ssh -N *******@us.gigabit.perfect-privacy.com -D 127.0.0.1:8020
It works when executed as a regular user and NOT root


I really need some help here.
All I want is to automatically create a Socks Proxy over SSH that stores my password.
Everything I've tried failed.

Putty is unable to store passwords and it always crashes after login.
KSTM/KDE SSH Tunnel Manager does not work, I don't get an error but the proxy doesn't work.
sshpass + ssh over commandline doesn't work either.
sshpass -p myPasswrd ssh -N -D1080 username@us.gigabit.perfect-privacy.com

I can't express how annoyed I am right now, in Windows I use Bitvise Tunnelier which works perfectly but it's not available for Linux.

I hope someone can help me.

Browser settings:
SOCKS Host: 127.0.0.1 Port 1080
SOCKS v5

OS: Arch Linux x86_64 with KDE

Did you ever establish a Connection via ssh to this server? Otherwise the Server IP and Fingerprint isn't in your known hosts file and Linux refuses to connect

Nothing:
[root@ArchHell ~]# sshpass -p "*******" ssh -N *******@us.gigabit.perfect-privacy.com -D 127.0.0.1:8020
[root@ArchHell ~]#

Update: When I execute it as a regular user and not root it works.
Thanks for your help.
