ssh tunnel wont work over the internet
Hi. I have been practicing ssh tunneling on my home network with great success.
I can run vnc and squid all over the one port to a gentoo box from both linux and windows machines (using putty).
The trouble starts when I try to do this from the internet.
Away from my network I only have access to Winxp machines so I have been trying to tunnel in with putty.
Putty will connect every time and I have full use of my shell, but I cannot run anything else through the tunnel (vnc, squid).
I am setting the tunnel up the same way as on my local network which works without a problem.
My network connects to the internet via a Netcomm NB5Plus4 DSL Modem.
I dont see how the firewall could be blocking the connection as putty still connects with a working shell, but nothing else will go down the tunnel..
ps. I have tried to access this from several different remote locations using different Isp's.
