Can't connect through ssh socks proxy to certain sites

Hello, i setup an open socks proxy on my remote vps:

ssh -f -N -D localhost

and then allowed only connections from IP of my home computer

iptables -A INPUT --src myhomeip -p tcp --dport 1080 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 1080 -j REJECT

but it appears that im failing to connect at least 2 swebsites,

one is

site:8888 (this is my server, hosts.deny dont contain my ip)

and second one


these are web control panels

can i anyhow veriffy what is happenning on my vps logs? which log file? (i have RHEL)

Im not sure how i can do it? Im n Windows OS, and Chrome browser. What i did is changed Internet Explorer proxy settings, so most of connections goes thru my socks proxy.

But as i said at least 2 websites of mine fails to load when done thru proxy.. others are OK. (and i veriffied im connecting via proxy on Google CHrome browser by My IP Address - Shows IPv4 & IPv6 | Blacklist IP Check - Hosting Info) Smilie

Maybe Chrome does not think :high_port is web and skips the proxy, or the web control panels are trying to connect back and are not being proxied for some reason. It is tough to say without a tracing tool on the ssh. The Chrome config for proxy or dns does not address proxy dns.
