I am trying to compile openssh from source and would like to know if there is any option which can help me to disable SOCKS support of sshd so what when client execute
ssh -D <port number> <hostname>

Open in new window

then it should not act like Dynamic proxy. Though I only want openssh to support remote forwarding on individual port but not dynamic proxy. Please let me know if there is a way.

Thank you!
