Do you know if this will work with a standard corporate firewall?
MS Admins where I work block SSH but let Telnet!
Looking at the OpenVPN expample they have this simple setup:
openvpn --remote june.kg --dev tun1 --ifconfig \
10.4.0.1 10.4.0.2 --verb 9
openvpn --remote may.kg --dev tun1 --ifconfig \
10.4.0.2 10.4.0.1 --verb 9
The problem with this is that I want to have a VPN from my home network
to my corporate desktop. The work desktop does not have an Internet
addressable IP/name. My home PC has a dynamic IP although I use
so I can always get to it. So how would I enter the --remote
name/IP for my corporate desktop from home?
I guess I could use SSH on another port, though a VPN would have more
utility and let me mount samba shares from my home FC1 desktop to my
work FC1 desktop.
You could look at the August 2003 issue of Linux Journal. There is a
solution to a similar problem solved using a program called vtun.
As for tunneling SMB through SSH, it works.
