Getting a program that can't be configured for a proxy to use a proxy
Posted on 2006-04-05
I have an ssh tunnel to another computer that can be used as an http server etc.
I cannot configure a program to access a local port on the machine in the way you can configure say explorer for 127.0.0.1. It will still try to connect to [dchp network ip]:port x [target machine]:port y
The only thing I can think of is to set my machine up as a server and get the program to connect from another machine as a client.
Will this work? Does anyone have other suggestions? The network I am on is very restrictive so I have to use ssh, yet I need to connect a debugging tool across this network that accesses port 440, and no it can't be changed to use a proxy.
