Any public proxy ideas that I can use right away over port 80?

I would presume this is a common problem. Would be nice to know if there are any sites sites or tools for solving it.

Phone someone with admin privileges and have him change the SSH port to 80. – Daniel Beck Sep 23 '11 at 14:08
Must free wireless setups use a transparent proxy which will throw away non-http connections. You might have better look with port 443 though. – David Spillett Sep 23 '11 at 20:26

If it's your own server, you can install shellinabox. This would allow you to setup a Web based AJAX terminal emulator where you use your browser as you with with any terminal.

This is what I did, after I used a questionable 3rd party service called ConsoleFish, with terrible timeouts, to download and set it up (and later I changed my password, of course). – Luke Stanley Sep 28 '11 at 16:49

Nothing public that I know of, but if you have your own server somewhere or could rent a cheap VPS (the smallest of them would do) you could instal something like and use that when you are in the pub.

Though I recommend putting the laptop down and enjoying your drink instead!

Thanks :) Would love to just enjoy a drink but there is a Python conference here in the UK and I need to setup some Unconferencing software, and no one else is here yet so it's all good. :) – Luke Stanley Sep 23 '11 at 14:41

To allow remote shell access to host from web browser (require html+css+javascript):

This requires more ports than port 80 already working to setup as the question says but it is close to a second part of a solution, but it's not an answer in itself. – Luke Stanley Feb 13 '12 at 23:22
