SSH over SOCKS proxy

Postby ^rooker » Wed May 31, 2017 3:40 pm

In order to connect to SSH over a SOCKS proxy server, you can use the following command:
Code: Select all
$ ssh -o ProxyCommand='nc -x %h %p'

You need to change the hostnames of the proxy- and ssh-server, as well as port and username to match your setup.
(Thanks to Captain Obvious for pointing that out ;))

Here is the same connection as .ssh/config example:
Code: Select all
Host mysshserver
    User myuser
    ProxyCommand nc -x %h %p

Successfully tested and used on Xubuntu 16.04.1 (Xenial Xerus) - ssh client v7.2.

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!
