free ssh account on 8080?


Hello,

Does anyone know about some Good Samaritan , who
runs forwarding ssh server on port 8080?. I'd like to try tunneling via PuTTy through firewall/proxy (port 8080), but I have no server outside.
So perhaps there is some good soul who provides such services?.
I could set up sshd on 8080 on my box but I have no public IP. So
it won't work.

Thanks for answer.

Cheers.

I don't think you will find anyone just setting up an ssh server for you cause it takes quite some time to configure this securely (so you can't do anything on the box itself) and there would still be the risk of you or somebody you're giving your credentials (be it intentionally or accidentally) using this proxy setup for illegal purpose...

But, maybe if you just give detailed information about:
- what exactly you are trying to tunnel
- what your network setup looks like

Maybe there is an easier way. And if there isn't, virtual linux servers aren't that expensive any more

Well, what I try to do is to listen to the internet radio.
Unfortunately firewall/proxy blocks it. Setup?. Well, this is like this:

my box with webbrowser set up for proxy on 8080 -> proxy -> internet.
For example I can get into BBC radio 7 website, I can even open console (browser window showing you that you receive broadcast) but, sorry, no streaming.

Ok, so you don't have control over the firewall? Well, if this is at work, you probably shouldn't be listening to radio

Probably your only option would be port 443. On 8080 typically listens a http proxy that will do http requests itself and deliver the answers back to you, this won't help when connecting to other services. As https is done on port 443, this is normally an exception and the proxy accepts "CONNECT" requests for that. You'd still need your own box somewhere at the outside -- go get a vserver

Perhaps you can talk to the IT people.
There is a reason why it is blocked.

Yea, you can bring your FM receiver and listen to it as much as you like but, NO, internet radio?. No. Thank You very much. This is too much advanced technology for people... . But, seriously, I think IT people have too small connection. If everyone started listening to radios and watching TV it would go bonkers... .

But one person with extremely extensive knowledge (that's I, of course ) wouldn't do much damage to the whole system.

Perhaps I will buy myself extension from my ISP to make my IP public (it costs about 1 Pound, Ouch..., but as they sing: "... It's gonna take money, whole lotta precious money to do it right, child..."). Then I will know how to do it.

you could do it on your own machine using dyndns to track your IP changes. I do this and it allows me to ssh into my home machine.

Wow that was quick! Glad you got it working though You'll want some client on your computer (I use dynupdater) or on your router to keep dyndns.org upto date with your IP and you should be good to go

Well, you're too good to be true... . Perhaps I will try it, but as my ISP doesn't change my IP that frequently, I can even stay with what I have now. However, if he changes my IP, I can always adjust it with my dynDNS account (Of course, from my box at home). Great thanks, anyway.

I'd still suggest NOT to try this if you kind of LIKE your job. A lot of encrypted proxy-connections to the same outside host with some constant data stream won't necessarily stay unnoticed

I hope you realize that your traffic might raise some flags at your companies IT dept. Tunneling through the firewall could cause legal problems for your company and lead to the loss of your job. People have been fired and sometimes even prosecuted for less. Is listening to BBC programming worth that risk?

guessing by the "It costs about 1 pound" I take it you're in the UK.
If you're with BT or O2, they have (at least the routers I had/have from them) a dyndns client built into the router, so
you won't need any separate software.
Check your router admin interface, quite straight forward to configure

Thanks for advice. I realize it and let's say I was curious. Let's treat it as if I asked, for clearly educational purposes. Just curious if it can be done and how. I have access to YouTube and it's quite enough (for the moment... ).

Besides, I've learned very cool thing. This dynDNS.
Now, I can have website on my box without paying additional money. That's great!.

It would be very easy to setup a virtual machine to test your skills.

It would be quite a security risk I'd think to allow a stranger to use my access.
