Please help: I want to connect to my ssh server at home
However, I'm behind a corporate (CORP) firewall,
which blocks almost all ports (443, 22, 23 etc).
But it seems that 80 is not blocked,
coz I am able to surf the web after I login
(i.e. IE sets to CORP's proxy server, and
start IE -> displayed CORP intranet portal -> type in google.com ->
dialog pops up for userid + pwd ->
login successful, and surf without restrictions)
My ssh server listens at 443.
My question is:
Is there a way to connect from
a computer behind the CORP firewall
to the ssh server
thru the 80 port, with the ssh server
still listening on port 443?
Changing the ssh server to listen to port 80
is not an option, coz
my home ISP blocks 80.
Can I use a public proxy which listens at 80?
After some research on google
I found that there is something called "connect to SSH thru an HTTP proxy" using the Cockscrew software.
Is it useful?
Or is there some other way to solve the problem?
