    Smile Proxy Scripting

    Hi

    I often connect to an external server via ssh and setup a socks proxy on my machine and configure application to go through it.

    I know very little about scripting but I assume it would be possible to do this with a script and save the script to the desktop.

    The command I use is:

    ssh -D 9999 username@sshserver.com -p ssh_port_on_server

    Thanks Dan

    Re: Proxy Scripting

    You can, for instance, place that line onto your ~/.bashrc file as an alias, like this:
    Code:
    alias proxy_conect='ssh -D 9999 username@sshserver.com -p ssh_port_on_server'
    Therefore, you open a Terminal, and type:
    Code:
    proxy_connect ENTER
    And It'll will execute the connection string.
    Another option might be to add an entry onto your .ssh/config file... With the parameters to connect to the SSH server.
    Live long and prosper.
    And use lotsa Linux, BSD, and Emacs.
