I am positive that I can get intranet access from my home computer via
ssh tunneling. But I dont know how this has to be done in detail. The
reason to do that is that some interesting e-journals are only accessible
from our school intranet and I gladly would read them at home. My idea is
the following: start up the ssh server at home, start ssh client at
school with the -R option and set up a ssh remote tunnel home-school.
What additional options must be set to allow for surfing on intranet from
The Dynamic option (-D) and SOCKS work well only in the opposite case: to
access internet from intranet. Is there a similar option for the remote
Thanks for your help
Re: intranet access from home computer via ssh
This is how I would do it. Tunnel from home to school, say, from
localhost port 119 to your school PC, port 119 localhost. Then at
school, add an iptables rule that does DNAT for traffic coming in on
localhost port 119 to your schools newsserver. Then you can connect to
your schools newsserver from home by connecting to localhost port 119.
I don't have much time today, but if you can't get it to work, I could
test it in a day or 2. Shout if you need some hints :)
