LFS compile over SSH on cygwin


I recently began an LFS install on Frankenstein, and I am currently compiling packages (chapter 5). I am stuck on an WinNT system at work, but I recently DL'd cygwin, and have ssh installed as well. I have plenty of down time at work, and I would like to do some of the compiling process remotely over SSH, but I don't know if anyone has ever tried this before. I'm not doing anything that requires chroot at the moment, just compiling, so I imagine that it should work fine. Just want to see if I am alone in trying this.

So you still have a host on the box you are ssh'ing into then right? And cygwin is simply the shell around your ssh client at work? Then yeah, there'd be no problem with compiling over the network, after all, ssh'ing into something is just as good as actually being there right

I constantly do things like that from work, I'll usually background the process:
process &

So I don't have to worry about some punjab shutting down the box while it's compiling stuff remotely.

Cool

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, this won't work, as I am behind a firewall, and trying to run Httptunnell on Cygwin is proving to be an exercise in futility.

I agree, putty is a much better solution than SSH through Cygwin.

It is illegal in some countries because of the security algorythms (or something like that), but that means SSH using Cygwin probably is too..

If you want putty, search google for PuTTY and it should be the first result.

Why not PuTTY?

I had no idea it existed, that's why

NOW the question is, can I get around my companies firewall. Apparently they are packet filtering, because even if I have my router listen on port 80 (which I know is open) for an incoming SSH request and then forward the request to my LFS box, I still can't connect from behind the firewall. So I have thought about SSH over HTTP (there are a couple of utilities that will do this), but I don't want to loose my job or anything, so I'm not trying TOO hard.

Outbound packet filtering? On port 22? That's evil. I see the point of going via Port 80 (ssh via http) however you could just setup SSH to listen on a non standard port (80) and not have to worry about the whole rigor of setting up the ssh over http and everything.

Good Luck regardless!

Cool
