I'm trying to figure out if I can do this via a SOCKS proxy, or if I need to use a VPN.
I have a Ubuntu server, and a dual-boot Ubuntu 11.10/Windows 7 client. What I'd like to do is connect to the server, and then be able to make use of entries in the servers
/etc/hosts file - including one which is on the servers LAN.
Is this possible via SOCKS? If not, is there anything special I'd need to do for it to work with openVPN?
