Can i tunnel http via ssh without setting up a http proxy?
Hi everyone - Happy holidays, merry xmas
I have tunnelled http port 80 via ssh to a linux box which is running a http proxy on port 80 which has worked for me in the past. But is there a way to do the same but instead of setting a http proxy cannot i not use the servers direct internet connection.
Thanks in advance again :_)
If I correctly understand your motivations, you just want to use the SOCKS functionality of SSH itself. connect using -D 1234 and then use that as the proxy address itself, and then anywhere you go to in your browser will automatically connect from the remote end.
Thanks for such a quick reply, i have tried what you said just using putty on a windows xp client and it doesnt seem to work. Please see my configuration below.
linux box connected to internet - 192.168.1.10
no firewalls or proxy server configured on this box
windows client - 192.168.1.5
Using putty i have created a connection to 192.168.1.10:22 then using the tunnel section in putty i have the below:
I then config firefox to use manual socks proxy = 127.0.0.1 port 8080
With all the above i still cant get internet access? The linux box is directly connected to the internet.
Thanks in advance again :)
P.S I have just found out that the linux box is using ports 80 & 8080 to serve a proxy server to general internal users. Could this be affecting what i am trying to achieve if so what do you recommend for me to be able to use the servers direct internet connection.
It was my fault - I was not using dynamic port setting
Thanks again for all your help
