Here's my situation.
I have a potential Mandrake 9.0 Linux Server running behind a
It's potential because of just that, for quite a few reasons I am
unable to open ports through the firewall to it.
I can, however, use it to connect to any number of computers outside
the firewall (for example, my computer at my house using ssh).
Here's what I would like to do. I want to be able to, for example,
type in the url of my house computer in some web browser somewhere,
with port 8080, say, and have it forward that connection to the
computer behind the firewall that it is connected to.
Usually, I would just use ssh -R, but the computer I'm trying to
forward connections to doesn't have an open domain name or port to the
outside world, so I can't give ssh a hostname or hostport to forward
There has to be a way to do this.
Does anybody have any ideas?
