Can I open a reverse shell with Podersa or puTTY? I would prefer Poderosa but I can't find the option to create a tunnel from my local machine port 9000 to my remote machine port 9000?


You need to configure port forwarding in PuTTY. See Connection > SSH > Tunnels. Some examples of usage: http://www.cs.uu.nl/technical/services/ssh/putty/puttyfw.html

  • Can I use cygwin to open a reverse shell from windows? I tried to connect to xdebug to no avail? – Gigamegs May 6 '12 at 19:11
  • Probably yes if you have OpenSSH client installed on cygwin. So you can use -R and -L (I didn't test since I don't have a Windows machine but probably it'll work since it is the "same" OpenSSH from Linux distros, but built for Windows). – Álvaro Justen May 6 '12 at 19:19
  • And to a virtual machine? I tried that too, to no avail? – Gigamegs May 6 '12 at 19:29
  • If you can port forward to/from virtual machines? Yes. – Álvaro Justen May 6 '12 at 19:34
