connecting through proxy, nice scripts?
Date: Sat, 29 Nov 2003 05:56:47 GMT
I'm wondering if anybody has any nice scripts for connecting to a
newsserver through an ssh tunnel? Not being very much of a script
writer at all, I simply have a file named slrnua which has the
following lines in it:
# open up the campus proxy so that I can connect through them
ssh -f -l userid proxy.ip.address slrn # ssh connection to proxy
slrn -h proxy.ip.address -f ~/.uanewsrc # run newsserver client
It does the job, but as you can see it's not very elegant and is so
dirty that I don't think it even deserves to be called a hack. I am
willing to learn, but right now don't really know where to begin.
So, if anybody has any ideas, or just wants to point me to some
resources that I could use I'd really appreciate it.
