connection host-server-host

Hi there,

I wrote one more post, but dunno what happened, maybe just did not appear.
Any way, I am using 3 different computer, linux, mac and server. Mac is at work, linux at home, and server is also at work with global access.

The thing I want to do is to connect to my Mac computer, however it is under firewall, so I cannot ssh to it so easly. Therefore my qustion is it possible to set things up this way that I will be able to connect somehow from outside to my mac? Btw.. server and mac are in two different subdomains.

Shrotly speaking I want connection mac<->linux, but mac is underfire wall. I think the only solution is somehow to leave connection open from mac to my home computer, but then I do not know how to access this connection form my linux.

For any help I will be greatful.

Check out this link for a start.
You want to use the ssh command at work with the -R option for reverse and define a random port as the example shows. Then you go back through on that port to the mac.
Only thing to check on is if any time limits are set on the connection whether timed or no activity.
