[HCoop-Help] ssh tunnel problems

Hello hcoopers,

For months (maybe years?) now I've been using putty to SSH tunnel to mire
from my office to bypass the stupid content blocker they have. Its always
worked great but suddenly about 3 weeks ago it won't connect at all, giving
me "Network error: Software caused connection to abort." whenever I try to
connect. I can still putty to mire from my home computer, and I can still
putty to other servers from my work computer, so I am guessing that my
office has blocked my connection to mire. Any other ideas why it doesn't
work anymore? Did something change on mire?

I'm dying at work without my SSH tunnel connection to the internet and
hoping that someone can help me figure out how to get another tunnel going.
I seem to be able to connect to mire via the web-based one at https:
ssh.hcoop.net using IE (but not Firefox, strangely), but I don't really know
what commands to use to get the tunnel going, since I suck at commands and
had only been using the putty preferences described here:
Is it possible to do a tunnel with the web-based SSH? And how would the
browser know to use it to connect?

Thank you for any help you can provide. I really appreciate it.
