Linux, WoW and SSH
I am new to Linux, previously a Windows user. I have very limited knowledge of my distro, Ubuntu but do have a good knowledge of Windows. I can navigate everything fine and understand how many things work but my problem is that I dont know many of the good applications.
Im a WoW player and decided I would install it on Ubuntu. All works fine, The graphics and everything are ok, using WINE.
My problem is this, I live in university halls, and they block alot of traffic, based on it being non-educational. I can understand that for blocking things like p2p and BitTorrent, bandwidth hogs.
I dont really see why they block WoW, very low bandwidth requirements.
Anyway, I got around this on Windows by using Putty to connect to my shell and then using Proxifier to tunnel all traffic from Wow.exe. I have also used socksify if that helps you understand what I was doing.
What I need is a way of "trapping" all traffic from wow.exe and sending it to my own machine (127.0.0.1) where it can be forwarded to my shell and around their restrictions.
I have tried the various bash commands to connect to a shell but they dont work. Im behind a Proxy that seems to mess everything up. To connect to my shell on Linux I have to use Putty. Not a big deal, I only really use it for WoW. So many SSH bash commands dont work for me.
Thanks for any comments.
