Re: Contacting a linux box behind a vicious cable internet firewall?
Here is a neet little app that sounds like it will do what you want.
It will connect to a trusted host and then you can connect to a port on that
trusted host from a 3rd computer and get redirected back in to the firewall
one. Hmm, I probably havn't explained it very well, but check it out
Hope this helps.
