I really need some clarification regarding how you connect to a remote server which then forwards requests to certain ports. In an ssh tunnel, are you establishing a SOCKS proxy? How do I get a server to forward requests to my pi at home? I would be unbelievably grateful for help. Thanks :))

  • In general, you will install/configure network on the remote server to perform port forwarding. If the remote server is a Linux/Unix machine, there are several ways to do this assuming you have root/su privileges on that machine. One way to accomplish this is via ssh; but ssh on the remote server must be configured to do port forwarding. ncat may be useful. Please provide more specifics; we'll try to help.

    I use ssh tunneling to forward ports so I won't have to publicly expose more than a single port through NAT. This is not SOCKS though. It may be easier to help you if you explain more directly what you're trying to accomplish.
