I am currently running 64-bit Windows 7 from my home laptop and I would like to establish an SSH reverse tunnel to my laptop from my work Ubuntu 64-bit machine. I have been reading many "tutorials" that have led me nowhere and I feel as though I'm chasing my tail now. I have done the following on my Ubuntu machine:
ssh -R 19999:localhost:22 laptop_ip
and on my Windows machine, using putty, did the following:
Host Name: host_IP
#under SSH>Tunnels tab
source port: 20000
I am able to access my Ubuntu machine when on my work network but there I have been unsuccessful when it comes to trying to remotely access it. I have tried everything that I can think of (though I am a novice). If there is any help/suggestions/ideas that could help, please let me know and don't hesitate to ask for more info! Thank you in advance!
p.s. I would also like to enable x-forwarding, but for now I would like to have remote access to the Ubuntu machine.
