Outbound commercial vpn

Jump to: navigation, search

An outbound VPN using a commercial service is provided to the space by Mark Jenkins <mark@parit.ca> . Ask for access.

Both styles of TCP port tunneling through ssh are supported:

  • SOCKS proxy (-D in openssh), which many applications can be configured to use
  • local port forwarding (-L in openssh)

This service is hosted on vmsrv . Because an ip address is shared with vmsrv.skullspace.ca, you have to connect your ssh client to port 6001, not port 22. A openssh command line example:

$ ssh -D SOCKSPORT -L LOCALPORT:SOMEREMOTESERVER:SOMEREMOTEPORT -p 6001 username@vpnout.skull.space

The distinct vpnout.skull.space domain name can help you avoid typing the port each time you login, just put

Host vpnout.skull.space
    HostName vpnout.skull.space
    Port 6001

in your ~/.ssh/config file (openssh) or equivilent profile feature in other ssh clients.
