I have a problem in accessing Internet through an ssh-accessible server
EDIT: FYI, my OS is Ubuntu 16.04, and IIRC, same as the server.
Ok, here's the deal.
- My company provide me a PC with network connection (through a proxy), but got limited to some resources on the net (I can neither add external PPA or
apt-get updateafter manually adding them, nor can't access to some download section of some applications, but still can install package by using
- Besides, my (above) PC have access to some of my company's servers via ssh connection. One of them (deliberately) has unrestricted Internet access (sounds weird, but that the way it is). I asked my boss if I can somehow can make my computer connect to the Internet without restriction through that server, and he told me that's possible but he doesn't know how to. And FYI, though he doesn't encourage me to do so, I'm not forbidden.
Is there any way I can do what I've just describe? From my PC, access (unrestricted) to Internet via a remote server (with unrestricted Internet access)
What I've tried so far
Not much, actually, because I don't know how to search (hard to think of a keyword) for the problem. Most of the time I tried to config the proxy, so I can (partially) solve the problem (for PPA, I tried adding to
source.list and add the sign, add proxy entries to
/etc/apt/apt.conf, …). Still no candy for the baby. If anyone need to see the error, tell me, but I want to solve the problem completely 🙁
I'm grateful to any suggestion. Thanks in advance!
