So im at work and we have port 80/443 blocked. Im trying to get access to the internet via SSH Tunnel. Im currently connected to a VPN that gives me access to the external network but of course i cant browse. So im trying to connect to my SSH Server at home using putty following this tutorial http://anotheritblog.net/2012/11/26/ssh-tunneling-on-windows-with-putty/. My server is listening on port 222 and does have the
GatewayPorts yes option configured but putty is telling me its disabled on my server when it isnt?
2016-03-16 11:09:08 Requesting remote port 80 forward to myserver.com:222 2016-03-16 11:09:08 Remote debug message: Server has disabled port forwarding. 2016-03-16 11:09:08 Remote port forwarding from 80 refused
Since im forwarding port 80 i thought maybe it was a firewall issue on my server so i added this rule to
# iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
but this did not resolve the problem. i even changed the
GatewayPorts yes to
GatewayPorts clientspecified but that also did not resolve the problem. Any ideas?
