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.
