Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My situation looks like this: I want to browse websites on my local Windows computer with IP from my other Windows computer that is behind NAT and I can't port forward there. I don't really want to install any big programs on the gateway computer because it is very slow. A program that I can just double click (or run through cmd) to tunnel http/https data from my local computer in the background would be the best. I was thinking about writing a program to do this, but there must be an easier solution. I have made some research about this, but didn't really find anything for Windows.

-use rinetd (http://www.boutell.com/rinetd/). it will listen to the ip:port and forward to the dst:port. it's very small program.

from what I've understand I have to use it on my gateway server with configuration like this: 0.0.0.0 80 my.lo.cal.ip 1001 How do I make my local browser connect through gateway though? Just reminding, the gateway server is behind a NAT. –  Martin Oct 21 '11 at 16:53
    
1. client => gateway:port (rinetd) => your.pc:port (is it your diagram ?). 2. client => gateway:port (rinetd) => another.pc:port (rinetd) => your.pc:port –  Rikih Oct 22 '11 at 12:18
