I'm looking to make my local unix box visible online, but due to the network here, I can't.

Is there a way I can get it to connect to a VPN and then have people access it through that?

What you can do, but that would involve another server:

  • Use a vpn to connect the box to another server (linux)
  • Install another IP on this server and forward everything to the VPN IP of your box
