Question Get acces to local network from outside.


Hi guys.

I have maybe a strange question, how can I get acces to a website that's only accesable from the linux server itself on another host?

so the situation.

I have 1 switch (managed) with a factory IP adress 192.168.1.1
and I have a server wich is connected to that switch, I can acces that server from outside (public) IP, the switch is not accesable from public, it does not have public IP, but from this same server I can acces it from commandline or web, for example like : telnet 192.168.1.1
or lynks 192.168.1.1
Now what I want to do is do a kind of a portmap sothat I can acces this switch from the public IP of the server on difrent port of course.
Years ago i used something like that, but forgot and dont know how to find it anymore.
I hope somebody can help.

any help / advise is much much aprisciated.

thanks in advance.

You can do it via a ssh tunnel. Is the remote computer running windows or linux?

ssh -L 8080:192.168.1.1:80 user@server

In your web browser use the URL localhost:8080

telnet is similar, change the port numbers and you can use the command

telnet localhost port to access the switch.

My normal pc is Windows, and here I have a normal web browser wich is needed to do some things on that switch.

normally I have already telnet via linux server to the switch but the telnet is little limited. so I need to be able to login to it with a full option browser.

Very easy to configure putty to set up a ssh tunnel to the switch. Many examples on the web.
