So I'm at work and we have port 80/443 blocked. I'm trying to get access to the internet via SSH Tunnel. I'm currently connected to a VPN that gives me access to the external network but of course I can't browse. So I'm 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 it's disabled on my server when it isn't?
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 I'm 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?
