There is a DC (Direct Connect) server set up at my university for students to use on campus. All off campus ports are blocked. I have a linux box on campus that I can ssh to from wherever. I was hoping I could just forward port 1412 from my local machine to the linux machine, but that doesn't work, and I am out of ideas on how to connect. (I have permission from the admin to do this as well). Any ideas?



On your local machine: ssh -L 1412:dcserver:1412 user@linuxbox

Then, on your local machine, open your client and use localhost:1412 as server.

  • you have to change dcserver and linuxbox with connect address/IP, change the user name. – shellholic Nov 22 '10 at 4:29
  • I used, on my local machine: ssh -L 1412:<address of the hub>:1412 <my username>@<my linux server's name> That is correct, no? Then I do localhost:1412 as my server, but my DC client (Shakespeer) says that it can't resolve localhost:1412 – DH1337 Nov 22 '10 at 5:11
  • perhaps there is a port field in your client, in this case, use localhost as server and 1412 as port – shellholic Nov 22 '10 at 11:40
