ssh port forward
Working from firewalled network is usual headache for a real hacker 😉
I am not hacker, but I need sometimes to reach some specific port out of my working network.
I found the following solution of my problem.
To make this dish, you need the following ingredients:
– out-of-your-network computer
– static IP on it. Or if firewall allows to reach Dynamic DNS, then DHPC address with Dynamic DNS setup is pretty enough.
– Linux on board and SSH installed.
Cooking process looks as following:
sudo ssh -L 22.214.171.124:23:126.96.36.199:9540 user@localhost
in this example:
188.8.131.52 – IP address, you want to bind to. If you don’t want binding to any specific local addresses, just remove this IP and following semicolon. And the string will look as
23 – port, where you are going to receive requests. This port should be allowed by your firewall.
184.108.40.206 – remote host, where you want to reach to
9540 – remote host port, which is forbidden by your firewall rules.
user@localhost – local user, which will log-in to ssh session locally.
After connection, you will get a possibility to connect to your host port 23, as if it was remote host with port 9540
Note: root is needed if you map ports lower than 1024.
