    ssh question

    Hey, how do you tunnel an ssh connection through port 80?
    assuming the firewall only lets inside connections go out to view the web.

    Typically using something httptunnel. Windows based version can be downloaded at http://www.htthost.com/httport_3_download_page.htm

    I blieve that the package would be known as httptunnel for most *nix systems.

    I have not dissected any of the code as of yet so I don't know how it is being done thrugh these apps. I've merely started watching for the traiffic on our network that allows this to happen.

    Hope this helps some.

    If you're not using a web server that's tied to port 80, you could have sshd start up using port 80 instead of 22. I believe it's sshd -p 80 or something similar.
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    You could also do some crazy port mapping crap with your router, depending on where the firewall sits.

    what kind of web server are u using? if u are not using any that directs to port 80, as the default, then sshd can be set to the port80.

    This can be done, but I don't have the time or energy to explain it right now, so I will just point you toward this link:


    I will post more on this when I get a chance, but it is actually very cool because you can tunnel anything over SSH. (without having to reconfigure SSH to listem on a different port). I would recommend using openSSH, and if you go to their website, you will find more good information about SSH tunneling.
