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

I have a server with SSH access (on port 22 and 443).

My ISP block everything except ports 80 and 443.

I there a simple way to make everything go to my server (via SSH) then return the response via the same SSH connection, but in a way I can use all the ports in my client.

Like : Me → SSH connection → My server → request → Server → My server → Me

It's like a VPN but I don't have any port available for a VPN (443 is already taken by SSH).

Get another ISP? That behaviour is unacceptable from an ISP. –  Michael Hampton Dec 16 '12 at 16:34
    
Problem is... I don't have any choice, it's that or tethering with my EDGE connection! –  Dorian Dec 18 '12 at 23:51

You would need OpenVPN to do this. The good news is, OpenVPN and SSH play well together.

OpenVPN can use an existing SSH connection for tunneling. See more at http://www.classy.dk/hacks/archives/002287.html and http://www.anonyproz.com/openvpnsshtunnel.pdf
