    Question ssh port tunneling.... anyone?

    okay im sorry if im in the wrong section, im new and a noob at all this. Just have three questions, when im at school, my school blocks any and all ports, but you can get on the internet but has filter, and online games dont work, is there a way i can (have ubuntu on hard disk, so i can book into it) like tunnel a port for a game, like minecraft, Ace of spades, or maybe a steam game, so that i can get through the firewall, and be able to play online.

    two left, should i maybe create a vpn on my home network and access that at school. And is there security in this, like (frankly ill be fine but just want to make sure) that i wont draw to much attention in network traffic and such.

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes there is a way unfortunately we don't support circumventing your schools security measures.

    As Dangertux said, we don't support circumventing IT policy. Thread closed.
