    TSCOKS/Tunneling

    THE TITLE IS A TYPO: TSOCKS, NOT TSCOKS
    TSOCKS, NOT TSCOKS

    Hey guys,
    I'm at a school with most ports blocked/various other protections on the network. I would like to tunnel to Steam. Our Advanced Computing Association club has multiple servers in a so-called DMZ, with no port blocks and the like. I asked an ACA member how to tunnel, and he said ssh to an ACA server and then use tsocks to send a connection through the tunnel. Currently I do the following:

    ssh -D 9999 dubslow@sand5.aca.[hostname]

    in one terminal, which works fine, then Ctrl+Shft+T to another terminal and run

    tsocks

    which "resets" the terminal, as in runs all the bash startup commands again. From what my friend and the tsocks manual say, that's just tsocks applying its settings. So after 'tsocks' and the terminal resetting, I use


    wine C:\\\Program\ Files\\Steam\\Steam.exe

    except that it still acts like it's not getting the internet. I can't think of any way to test the internet, because 'ping' in general does not work on campus, even from the server in the DMZ. EDIT: I just tried installing elinks via apt-get from the tsocks'ed terminal, and it worked fine, so I think I'm using tsocks wrong.

    In my tsocks.conf, I have the following:

    server = 127.0.0.1
    server_type = 5
    server_port = 9999

    All I can think of is that I'm using tsocks wrong, but going through the manual and tsocks.conf manual hasn't helped. I know it's possible because my friend can do it, although I can't ask him for help because he has since rescinded his permission for me tunneling, and doesn't not know that I still am. (I have approval from other ACA members with root to tunnel.)

    This should be an ACA initiation for acceptance.. Either that or drop the first A

    I'm not a member, just trying to tap the resources to Steam linux. (Any of the members could easily destroy me computer-wise.) I got the tunnel working fine in Windows with putty and proxifier, but tsocks hates me apparently.

    Re: TSCOKS/Tunneling

    Verify that you commented out the Path example in /etc/tsocks.conf and pick a bind port greater than 10000, i.e. 19999. If your syntax still won't work, consider altering it like this:

    with-tsocks --server=username@somedomain --forward-port=19999 wine C:\\etc

    Re: TSCOKS/Tunneling

    In windows the port is 9999, and my unhelpful friend uses 2000. Admittedly, I hadn't commented out the path example because it was irrelevant. I'll let you know when I test it; I am currently in Windows for Portal 2 .

    Re: TSCOKS/Tunneling

    Still doesn't work. Everything is commented out except

    server = 127.0.0.1
    server_type = 5
    server_port = 9999

    This is the error when I try and run steam:

    Any other ideas?
