Tunnel SSH over DHS
If you are on a network, and you dont have access to a Proxy, or you have to pay for a proxy, then it might be possible to get free internet access....albeit at modem (~56kbit) speeds.
- 1. You must be able to join the network, and you must be able to do DNS lookups. I.e.:
ping server.com Pinging server.com [22.214.171.124] with 32 bytes of data: Request timed out. Request timed out. Request timed out.
If it correctly resolved the ip of your server - then you have passed condition 1.
- 2. You will need a (preferable linux) computer on the Internet, with root access. (Or perhaps a willing friend with one).
- 3. You will also need access to an existing DNS server, and/or DynDNS account (see reference below for DynDNS).
- 4. The computer you are using (client) requires linux. A live CD will do nicely.
Download/Setup Files Required for Both Client and Server
The above download is required for BOTH the client and server Download either one of the above. Gunzip and tar -xvf the above file.
As the above perl files use some perl packages, these need to be installed. Specifically:
apt-get install libnet-dns-perl apt-get install libmime-base32-perl
This next setup will vary depending on what you currently use. Ideally you have 2 servers on the internet. The 1st which is currently a DNS server, and 2nd is a normal server which does not have a DNS server.
My Situation: I have 2 physical computers on the internet: 1st = www.server.com (does DNS and mail and web) 2nd = test.server.com (test server).
Config for Existing DNS Server
Basically, you just want to add a DNS rule to point at your second server.
vi /etc/bind/zones/server.com.zone dnstun IN NS dnstun.server.com. dnstun IN A 126.96.36.199 /etc/init.d/bind9 reload
Config for Existing Test Server
This is where the special DNS server runs. Root access is required. The ozymandns_src_0.1.tgz and the 2 apt-get packages are also required.
./nomde.pl -i 0.0.0.0 dnstun.server.com # open the firewall allowing in udp 53.
Config for Client Server
ssh -o ProxyCommand="./droute.pl sshdns.dnstun.server.com" user@localhost # you will also in the above line, be ssh'ing into your dnstun.server.com
If there is a proxy on your dnstun.burkesys.com, then you can go:
ssh -o ProxyCommand="./droute.pl sshdns.dnstun.server.com" user@localhost -L 3128:proxy.server.com:3128
