    I need help understanding why my SSH tunnel connection isn't hiding my public IP address no matter which SSH tunneling provider I use. Psiphon Pro VPN app cloaks my IP just fine though.
    Moto G4+ Android Nougat 7.0 (rooted), Google Chrome app, SSH Tunnel 1.5.6 app

    I made successful SSH connections using accounts with the following free SSH providers: www.sshagan.net, www.fastssh.com, www.freevpn.us

    Example setup:
    Host IP: x-usa1.sshservers.us
    OpenSSH port: 22
    Username: myusername-freevpn.us
    Password: ********
    Use SOCKS proxy: enabled
    Local Port: 1984
    Global Proxy: enabled
    Enable DNS Proxy: enabled/disabled (both worked with same results)

    When I use the IP address site at www.expressvpn.com/what-is-my-ip (or any other such site), it always displays the same public IP with or without SSH tunneling. Can someone advise me as to what I'm doing wrong? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    I was able to cloak my IP by using the ProxyDroid app in conjunction with the SSH Tunnel app as follows:

    Configured and connected SSH Tunnel as above
    Configured ProxyDroid as follows:
    - Host: 127.0.0.1
    - Port: 1984 (same local port used with SSH Tunnel)
    - Proxy Type: SOCKS5
    - Global Proxy: enabled
    Connected ProxyDroid

    My IP address at https://whoer.net was now different from my public IP.
