Unhappy ozymanDNS Tunneling - I never get a login prompt... What I'm missing?

My web host is Netfirms. I have setup an A record to point and to the IP address of my server (in my home) which I run ozymanDNS on.

Currently bind9 is installed and I stop it when I use ozymanDNS (/etc/init.d/bind9 stop). Then, on the server, I run:
./ -i
Output from is now:
Creating TCP socket 0#53 - done.
Creating UDP socket 0#53 - done.
Waiting for connections...
I have added to my /usr/bin/ so I don't need to use ./ To login, I do:
ssh -o ProxyCommand="droute" username@localhost
Once I try to SSH into the server, with the above command, I never get a prompt. The command just hangs and probably would forever.

What am I missing here? I have followed the instructions at but the section "Technical Setup" is a bit confusing to me. I feel that I my have misunderstood something. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
