Wrt160n validating identity
Open an ssh connection to a server you have access to using something like the following:ssh -ND 8887 -p 22 [email protected] 8887 is the port on your laptop that you will tunnel through, -p 22 is the port the ssh server is on (22 is the default but I use a different port so I am used to specifying this) and the rest is your username and the address of the server Set your network to point to the proxy. Tunneling over SSH protects your traffic for that portion of the network (and out past your ISP as far as the remote end of the SSH tunnel).
On a similar note, I have this aliased in my shell (.profile) so I don't have to think before getting a proxy up:alias socks="ssh -ND 8887 -p 22 [email protected]"That way I can just open a shell and type "socks" and be good to go (well and then do the system preferences deal, but I have an Apple Script that does that automatically). The HTTP websites that you visit beyond the SSH server see your clear text packets.
All of you know we are undertaking new initiatives to connect with each and every one of you - through workshops, reader meets, boot camps and webinars, which we kick-started under the "Eighth Anniversary Carnival" banner.
For one reason or another, my Linksys WRT54GL wireless-G router began intermittently dropping DNS connections (126.96.36.199) even though the default gateway (192.168.1.1) respond normally to pings.
