My friend is having some issues accessing google, etc. from China. I guess the china firewall is blocking her from getting to the websites.
I am trying to have her proxy through my ubuntu server in the USA to get complete internet access, but i'm thinking china blocked port 22 for ssh'ing.
here is what she did on her mac:
I can connect no problem using:
local-admins-computer:~ local_admin$ ssh -v -v -v -C -D 9999 Johnny5@coldowl.com
OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7l 28 Sep 2006
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to coldowl.com [18.104.22.168] port 22.
debug1: connect to address 22.214.171.124 port 22: Operation timed out
ssh: connect to host coldowl.com port 22: Operation timed out
but then again, i'm in the US. my server is behind a router with firewall disabled and the port forwarding all probperly configured.
any ideas? my guess is china blocked port 22.
