Why can't I get AFP to work over SSH tunnel/SOCKS proxy

I have dialed into my home machine from work via ssh using the -D command to setup a proxy and have gone to system preferences and added my localhost and port number to make the whole proxy thing work.  I go to wimi.com and it shows my home ip address.  How come I can't connect to AFP site however?  I noticed recently they started block AFP connections here at work (I used to AFP home all the time).  I figured the solution would be doing ssh to my home computer but it still appears to timeout. What am I missing?  

Server is running 10.8 and client is running 10.9

The former sums up what I've already done so i'm not sure why you're mentioning it.  The latter I tried with no success.  Perhaps I am asking the wrong question.  How do I get every single port to be tunneled over something like SSH?  Is there a way?  I know a VPN is more for this occasion but they have recently started blocking that here as well so I'm trying other things.
