Click on ssh > Tunnels

and enter a source port (something above thousand will do )
lets use 1337 and then click on Dynamic for Destination
and click add..

and then you can go back to Session and you can save that settings with the desired name so that you can skip these things for the next time
and click open ..and then you have to login with the credentials what you have ( root or any shell acc will do )

and then minimise the putty window..

next we will open the firefox settings tab and fill thedetails as shown in the below image

and save the settings..
