Talking SSH Port Forwarding


Hi,

I am connecting to my home computer from a remote location via ssh. I am forwarding port 8080 dynamically (for the internet, using socks.)

My question is how do i forward outbound ports from the remote computer running the SSH client, meant to go to the internet, to the server at home, which should then forward them to the internet?

Do i have to use a proxy on my home computer or is there an other way of doing this task without needing an other proxy?

thanks
wwnexc

Conventionally ssh is on port 22 so you would require port forwarding of port 22 to the box on the lan. Make sure you have strong paswords and it is normally recommended that you disallow root access and login as a user and then su into a root shell.

Well I am not sure I understand this correctly... Let me re phrase this :-)

you have a remote pc (let's call it remotePC) that connects to your home PC (now on called homePC) via ssh.

You want to know how you could browse Internet on remotePC using your homePC internet access...

Well I dont think you can not do that via port forwarding. It has to be at the IP level and involve routes.

Good luck!

well, using dynamic port forwarding, virtual 8080, it works.

Yes, I am trying to connect from remotePC to my homePC to access the internet, which works, but i cannot get other ports to be forwarded.

Should i install some sort of a port forwarding application on the server or proxy?

The remote box should not require any forwarding if you have internet access from it. In order to access your home box from the internet you need to know it's ip address. As this is dynamic this can be difficult. You could use www.dyndns.org to setup a permanent address. Your home box would update their server with the ip address as it changes. You should be able to access the box then by either ip address or name resolution.
The alternate method would be to setup a dial-in facility on the home box and this would then route internet requests through a specified gateway. ssh shouldn't come into the scenario as this really a method of communicating with a box securely.
