Re: [tlug] SSH Tunneling basics

Presumably the problem here is that the hotel network is restricting
outgoing connections except to ports usually used by e-mail and the
web. That means that you can't make an outgoing connection to an SSH
server listening on port 22 (or whatever port you have sshd listening

If I'm reading it right the site you've linked is for someone who _is_
about to get out on the SSH port, but wants to use SSH to encrypt
their e-mail traffic.

In your case, couldn't you just set your SSH server to listen on one
of the ports that they're allowing through? For example, if you're not
running an HTTPS site on your web server, port 443 should be
available, so tell sshd to listen on that.
