Under my wireless network I have certain ports blocked (in this example 2467 [its randomly assigned]). I have an SSH box which I can access the host and port as intended.

How would I do this?

Example: (on wireless network) ---> Personal Server On my personal server I would want to foward all personal traffic from the SSH client on that port and have it sent from the personal server.

I know how to do this HTTP, however I am unable to do this with SVN traffic. Does anyone have any idea on this?

I'm not trying to access resources on my personal server, I just need my personal server to relay this over SSH. [I'm allowed to SSH out on the Wireless connection]

I think this is what you're looking for:

#Forward local traffic on port 9999 to squid on ssh server
#  Set browser proxy server to port 9999
ssh -L 9999:$SSH_SERVER:3128 $SSH_SERVER

#Forward local traffic on port 8888 to pop3 mail server
ssh -L 8888:$MAIL_SERVER:110 $SSH_SERVER

I wouldn't have the information of the SVN server before hand. – monksy Nov 29 '09 at 13:14
