Private SSH SOCKS Tunnel

The use of SSH private tunnels as a “poor man’s VPN” is pretty common. When doing so, you can easily tunnel (map) traffic destined to specific ports thru the tunnel to their intended destination.

Common Ports:

  • CVS: ┬áL2401
  • SVN: L3690
  • git: L9418 tcp
  • mysql: L3306
  • rdp: L3389 tcp
  • socks4/socks5: D1080 (no host required)
