Re: Networking Dilemna
- hello chris !
why don't you setup ssh tunnels over your main ssh connection ?
tunnel is easy, it just needs 1 opened port (the ssh one), then you
can forward and backward ports, even on the fly !!
look : if i'm away from home, and want to stream my mt-daapd to
office, i'll issue a command like this :
ssh -l root -L 10000:127.0.0.1:3689 domain.or.ipaddress.com -p 443
substitute "domain.or.ipaddress.com" with a valid domain/ip address
and note the "-p" option that tells to use 443 instead of 22 (this is
optional but works great trough proxies !!)
to change ssh port look "sshd_config" in ~/.ssh/
if you use a client like putty, look in options you will find "SSH-
>Tunnels" and there you can setup multiple tunnel forwardingshope it helps
