SSH VPN tunnel without having to enable root
ive been trying to setup a VPN SSH tunnel and ive had success executing ssh -Nv -w 0:0 email@example.com -p 50
however what i am wondering is, can i do the tunneling without having root unlocked when i try ssh -Nv -w 0:0 $firstname.lastname@example.org -p 50 and have root acccount disabled while $username is set in sudoers, i get an administratively prohibited
so my question is, can i do the tunnel without having root enabled? thnx
Re: SSH VPN tunnel without having to enable root
A process can't bind to a port under 1025 without being root. I am not sure what you mean by "without having root enabled" but you should be able to do it using sudo.
