What diagnostics / troubleshooting can be performed to meet the goal?
Goal: tunnel through a remote router, with port 22 enabled for SSH access via SSH. Asus RT68U Router outfitted with Merlin Firmware
- ssh tunnel setup from terminal:
ssh -D 3000 -N firstname.lastname@example.org
- proxy setup:
Note: username / pw is accepted by router on the WAN side.
Tunnel failure indicated: Safari does not return any webpages when proxy is engaged.

The litmus test is www.whatismyip.com should return the FQDN's WAN IP address.
What diagnostic tests can be performed to determine corrective action? Any diagnostic questions to advance the effort is appreciated: thank you.
Is it possible that having identical subnets 192.168.1.X at both ends is problematic?
