SSH Tunneling to get around blocked ports

Ports blocked? Try this:

  • On your laptop, execute:
 ssh -f -N -L 9999:chat.freenode.net:6667 machine.I.have.rights.on

...where chat.freenode.net:6667 is the machine/port you want to eventually get to, machine.i.have.rights.on is...well, that, and 9999 is an empty port on your local machine.

You'll be prompted for a password if you need one, after which you can put it in the background.

Then you can set up your chat software to talk to localhost:9999 and you're set.

Ground Crew Contacts

Please feel free to contact us about anything, any time, between now and the end of the conference.
