I am trying to connect my home linux laptop and my work Windows 7 computer. They are both behind NAT w/ firewall and neither allows port forwarding. I cannot control the NAT, firewall or port forwarding.

Ideally I would like the linux box to be the server and the Windows machine to be the client, however to make a SSH tunnel, I need a third party. The only third party that I have at my disposal would be my cell phone.

It is an Android with 4G access and unlimited data. Is it possible to use the cell phone as the third party/middleman?

Is there a way to do that on my android phone? – user1026169 Aug 11 '12 at 3:35

Are you sure your Android phone free of NAT ? That is unusual. If yes, first install sshd on your call phone. Run it - it will show it's ip address. And try to connect to it from Windows.
