How can I access web services inside my company's LAN from the outside? I can SSH in to a machine that's inside the LAN.
I tried to use Putty to set up dynamic port forwarding and configured Firefox to use localhost as a SOCKS proxy, but that didn't seem to work. I can't access any page at all with this proxy configuration in Firefox.
Can it be that AllowTcpForwarding is set to no? How do I check?
Can it be anything else?
I want to be able to connect to several different web sites/services inside the LAN, both using http and https and running on port 80, 433, as well as other ports. I do not have root access to any machine inside the LAN.
So, how can I access web services inside my company's LAN?
$ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/ppp0/forwarding cat: /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/ppp0/forwarding: No such file or directory $ cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/forwarding 0
So I guess that means AllowTcpForwarding is "no".
Lynx isn't installed, but I guess I could compile it and install it to ~/bin/, but I'm affraid that wouldn't help. One of the services I need to access is a fancy drag-and-drop web page, so I need to be able to use a modern graphical browser to access it.
So it looks like the SOCKS proxy I set up with Putty does work. But only for some URLs. We have a .pac file for automatic proxy configuration at work. The sites that I can access without the proxy config at work I can also access through my SOCKS proxy.
So to get everything working through my SOCKS proxy it seems like I need to incorporate the rules from the .pac file somehow. Anyone have any idea how to do that?
