putty and trying hard to connect to a linux server
i have been trying to set up internet from my mobile phone.. and through that from my laptop - which is connected to the mobile phone..
the question is not directly linux-related, however, i have come to appreciate the extended knowledge of the linux users so this is exactly what i seek now.
on the mobile phone (a nokia 6300) i have configured a WAP internet connection, which is realised by connecting to a proxy server...
if i want to have an internet connection from my laptop, i have to add proxy settings to firefox configuration pages... an LAN IP and a PORT #...if i do, i get mobile gprs internet on my laptop... (its not perfect - some of the webpages can't be loaded, but it will suffice for now).
my problem is with putty and trying to connect to my linux server. if i add the proxy settings to putty config screen, i get a 403 forbidden message...
i presume the proxy server of my mobile phone provider has closed access to all ports and only allows http data through the proy port... am i right...
my home server listens in some high port, not on 22... so i presume they have clsoed everything...
still is it possible that i can search for any other open port using nmap or smth? also is t possible to setup a proxy on my laptop and redirect ssh traffic to to a random local proxy port and through that to the MSP proxy, so i can have ssh allowed through???
any ideas and / or guides would be highly appreciated
thank you in advance for your help
