My college is blocking traffic through certain ports which my applicaton uses (TCP, UDP). When I use a free VPN service like HotSpot VPN. It works fine and redirects all the network traffic through.
Recently, i've got a superuser access on my network through which I can access all the ports as long as I'm using a lab computer. Now, I want to in a way abuse this feature and redirect traffic from my laptop through this superuser access.
I know I can port forward certain ports for HTTP access etc. My question is if I can tunnel all the incoming data on any port through the superuser account and into my laptop.
My attempt so far as been to read up various articles :'( I've read that setting up a VPN service on this superuser account and accessing that computer via a SSH tunnel from my Laptop should do the work.
Is that the only or rather the easiest way to go about it? If yes, can you suggest me how I could that.
