Networking :: How To Set Up Secure Web Tunnel?

Mar 24, 2011

I'm trying to set up a secure web tunnel at home I have an Ubuntu box (desktop), a Mac, and a Windows 7 box. I use all of them for different reasons. I want to be able to route traffic from my browser through my Ubuntu box. I have done this before with proxy servers abroad, but I want to do it using ssh and my box at home so I don't have to pay for a service i.e (Secure Tunnel)etc.

I followed the instructions at However, using my Win7 box, after I set the browser part per the instructions, I get no connection from the browser.

Networking :: Multi-hop VNC Tunnel Over SSH

Oct 21, 2010

Is it possible to chain together multiple SSH tunnel hops in a single `ssh -L` command on the client side? I have two gateways I need to get through in order to access a remote host. For a normal SSH client connection, it's simple enough chain this all together by simply appending the additional SSH connection commands to the first one:Code: ssh gateway.1 ssh gateway.2 ssh

Fedora Networking :: Can't Establish A Ssh Tunnel

Jun 20, 2010

I have a headless server, running Fedora 13. I want to make a ssh tunnel to that server from laptop that is also running Fedora 13. Logging into that server over ssh works well, X11 forwarding also works, but I can't establish a ssh tunnel.

At the moment I was trying to connect two small python tcp sample programs, that communicate through port 8000. Running them both on my laptop works well.

What I am trying to do is that I am making two seperate ssh connections to my server, let's say it's address is

1) I make a 'standard' ssh connection to it


And run the server program

2) I open another terminal window and make the tunnel


3) I open 3rd terminal window and try to run the client program, that is trying to connect to localhost:8000.

If I understand it correctly, the client should now connect to localhost:8000, ssh would discover that and send that data to port 8000. Then the server program on is listening on that port and should get that data and send "hello world" string back to the client. Then the client should get that, print it to stdout and exit.

Unfortunatly all what it does is that it just hangs for about ten seconds and then says "connection lost" (timeout?)

I have tried other programs, they also timout.

By passing the -v argument to ssh it outputs:


When I try to connect the client it prints four more lines:


So as you see, it says that the connection times out..Also can anybody tell what the "Unspecified GSS failure." means? The possible break in attempt is caused by connecting to the server using the address while being in the same local network with the server. If I connect using server's local ip address (ie., the message dissappears.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Create SSH Tunnel

Aug 3, 2011

I wanted to create an ssh tunnel but I do not know what commands to run .. my environment is as follows:
LAN Internet Office LAN
Home PC <-> Linux firewall <-> http server..

According to the above what I figure is that I have an internal web server at my job and I need to create a tunnel to access the web server from my PC in my home. I know I can do a port forwarding with the firewall but I don't want to publish this web server to Internet. My home PC and both servers (firewall and web) are ubuntu. My idea is create a ssh tunnel that forward port 8080 on localhost in my home pc, to the firewall (obviously with public ip), and the the firewall forward to port 80 on office web server at my job. Note that the firewall accepts ssh connections to port 22, same for web server...

Networking :: How To Forward Ip Tunnel's Output

Aug 13, 2010

I'm trying to implement a routing short-cut solution, whose requirement is as following: server1(Linux) sends ip packets(destined to server3) to server2(Linux) via an ip tunnel between them, server2 forwards the ip tunnel's output (the inner ip packets) to server3. Each server has only one NIC and a public ip associated with it. All servers can communicate with each other. I'm sure the ip tunnel between server1 and server2 was configured correctly and worked well. server2's ip_forward was enabled too. On server2, I can capture the traffic on the ip tunnel interface, and they are originated from server1 and destined to server3. The problem is server2 does not forward the ip tunnel's output at all. On server2, I just run "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward". Is there anything I missed for enabling ip_forward? Or originally, ip forward can't work on servers with only one NIC, can it?

Networking :: Setup Ip Tunnel In Different Locations

Apr 18, 2011

I have 2 linux servers in different locations. I need to setup a ip tunnel. I follow this steps on both servers:

Server1: ip tunnel add tun0 mode ipip local IP_Server1 remote IP_Server2 dev ethX ip l s tun0 up ip a a peer dev tun0

Server2: ip tunnel add tun0 mode ipip local IP_Server2 remote IP_Server1 dev ethX ip l s tun0 up ip a a peer dev tun0

After creating the tunnel everything is ok, but after a time(maybe some hours), I can't ping the other end of the tunnel (ping to IP_Server1 and IP_Server2 is ok all the time; the connection to internet is very reliable). I have tried "ipip" and "gre" mode, but same result. If I ping from two servers the other end of the tunnel, the connection is again established for some hours and ping is working in both directions.(if I ping only from one side the ping is not working) How can I resolve this issue for no longer having to log on both servers to ping the other end of the tunnel? If I use an crondjob to ping the other end of the tunnel at 2 hours everything is working fine for weeks, but I need other solution.

Networking :: IPTables / SSH Tunnel With 2Nics

Oct 6, 2010

I've been running a DebLenny system on the network which acts as the local gateway. It has 2 network cards and traffic is directed as follows:

iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface eth0 -j MASQUERADE
iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface eth1 -j ACCEPT

However, I'd now like to put all the outgoing traffic through a remote system which will further handle the outgoing data (Squid, etc) via the PPPTP device. What would be the most efficient way by which I could achieve this?

Networking :: Can't Ping Anything Behind The Server End Of The Tunnel?

Apr 5, 2010

I am building up a site-to-site OpenVPN tunnel between two locations. I am setting this up in two CentOS 5.4 boxes each containing two NIC's. I can get the tunnel up and running, and I can ping across the tunnel, however, from the client end of the tunnel I can not ping anything behind the server end of the tunnel. In other words, I can't ping anything on the server's LAN. On both servers, eth0 is the WAN side and eth1 is the LAN side.

OpenVPN server:
eth1 -
OpenVPN client-server:
eth1 -
I have IP forwarding enabled in the kernel on both machines.
[root@vpn01 openvpn]# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward


I'm sure that the answer is right in front of me, but I can't seem to get it cleared up. I can't hit anything on the,, or networks from the client server.

Networking :: OpenVPN Can't Establish A Tunnel Via Fw2

Feb 10, 2011

I have two firewalls, one primary (fw1) and one fall-back/backup (fw2). On the LAN side the fw's reside in the same LAN segment. I have a client who wants VPN redundancy. So I configured two VPN tunnels for this client. One via fw1 and a backup via fw2. Since the default gateway on the VPN server points to fw1 only the tunnel via fw1 is established. OpenVPN can't establish a tunnel via fw2 because of the gateway and just sits there waiting...

Security :: Ways To Secure Sendmail Or Secure Alternatives To Send Mail

Dec 1, 2010

I'm an Oracle DBA and started working for my current employer about 4 months ago. This past weekend an alert re: FS space brought my attention to /var/spool/clientmqueue (full of mail re: cron jobs) and the fact that sendmail is not running on our Linux servers.I'm told that the IT security team deemed sendmail too vulnerable so we don't run it.Aside from FS filling up and missing notification of issues with crontab entries, I'm concerned that we may be missing notification of potential issues. In other Unix/Linux environments I've seen emails from the print daemon when it experienced problems with specific jobs.

Are there other Linux facilities aside from cron and lpd that use email to advise the users of possible issues? Are there ways to secure sendmail or secure alternatives to sendmail? My primary need/desire is to make sure that emails regarding issues on the server get to the appropriate users. Secondary goal would be to have the ability to use mailx to send mail out. There is No need/desire to receive mail from outside.

Ubuntu Networking :: Browsing Via SSH Tunnel Very Slow

Jan 31, 2010

Browsing via SSH Tunnel very slow When browsing in firefox at work via proxy through ssh on my 8.04 server the speed is near dial up. I have compression enabled, tried restarting ssh, and rebooting the server but it remains so sluggish. At home the connection is quick but the speed is lost in translation once I ssh in. I also tried adding "UseDNS no" to the ssh config but that did not help with the slow login or any other speed issues.

Ubuntu Networking :: Connect Samba Through SSH Tunnel?

Nov 13, 2010

I have a server running Ubuntu Server 10.04 that is a VirtualBox/Samba/SSH server. I have port forwarding set up for ports 22 and 3389 (SSH and RDP) and I want to access the Samba share without opening any other ports. I can connect to it from my internal network, but I want to be able to access it from school. My best guess would be to tunnel the Samba port through SSH, but I don't know how. I will be connecting to it from Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Route DNS Queries Through Tunnel Too

I set up a routed OpenVPN server. Everything works fine. But I'd like to route the DNS queries thru the tunnel too. So I added:


Can't find server name for address Non-existent domain Even thou I have a DNS server set up correctly (on the same server as the VPN) with recursion. I verified that by sending queries form external source, which worked fine. I suspect that the Bind server doesn't listen to the tun0-interface only eth0, but the Bind manual says it should listen to all interfaces by default. The server log shows:

Ubuntu Networking :: SSH Tunnel / Port Forwarding

Jul 28, 2011

I don't understand the concept of ssh port forwarding and tunneling.I was going to set up a remote desktop (vnc) connection to my grandmother's laptop that we'll give her soon so if something goes wrong i can fix it from here (she lives on the other side of the world). However, i've read using vnc plain over the internet isn't secure, and that i can secure it by running it through an ssh tunnel.That's what i've understood so far. However, from there on i get confused.

I'd have to run both an ssh server AND a vnc server on her laptop? So what i'd have to do is ssh into her computer, and then while logged on on her computer, somehow open a vnc connection back from the remote server to the local computer? Then i'd go back to my local computer and open a port where the vnc connection is waiting? From the concept, it would seem like i should be able to tunnel all the regular network traffic from the local computer to the remote one through ssh?

Networking :: Use VPN Tunnel For All Traffic Except SMTP (port 25)?

Nov 8, 2010

I'm new to iptable configuration. I've set up a VPN using DD-WRT on my router and it works fine. However the VPN company does not allow port 25 traffic (in case of spammers) so now I can't get my emails sent out.

I'm guessing I can add some rules to my iptable so that all traffic except port 25 traffic can go out through the VPN tunnel. And hopefully, all port 25 traffic will go out through the normal Internet connection.code...

So im trying to get an icmp tunnel setup using ptunnel. When I run it under the same network and use to connect to RDP, it works fine, however when go outside my network and connect in, it does not get anywhere. I can confirm that I have forwarded ICMP packets to the server (if I ping the external ip it will show the status of the server if I unplug it) and that the server is showing signs of registering it.

On the client it just tries to resend the packet "Resending packet with seq-no 0" Over and over Firewall is off for testing so thats not the issue.

Networking :: IPsec - Tunnel Restrictions And Users?

Jun 22, 2011

While I successfully configured an IPsec-VPN (I use a similar tho modified setup like this:[URL].. I am now stuck on the next steps. While I can connect to everything I want, I need to configure "access-groups" and/or "users".

The scenario is similar to this: Lets say Host A, B and C allow SSH-Connections and some weird non-standard UDP-Connection from Host-VPN, and are also accessible on other ports with public IP's (like http).

I now want to limit, that an admin-user has access to all of them, while trainee-admin only can access everything on Host B and C, and CEO only can connect via telnet to Host C - and all users can be roadwarriors

(I made this example up to give you an idea what i'm trying to do - hope it makes sense). Now my question is, if someone can point me towards a direction, as I'm quite clueless at the current moment as to what to try. I know that commercial IPsec-Implementations can do this, but can OpenSWAN/... give me something similar?
