SSH dynamic (SOCKS) proxy

If you do not need a full VPN but only access to internal Web services like renewal of a student account or creation of renewal of a VPN profile/certificate, you can use a dynamic proxy via SSH:

  • Unix, MacOS-X: ssh -D7777 (students) or ssh -D7777 (employees)
  • Putty running on Windows:
    1. In Session: Host (students) or (employees)
    2. In Connection: open the sub-menu SSH
    3. In Tunnels: destination dynamic, source port 7777, ADD
    4. Then Open

Finally, configure in your web browser localhost:7777 as the Socks V5 proxy.
