I have a command-line application on linux that uses a specific port to talk to a remote server. Unfortunately, at work, that port is blocked.
I am able to connect my laptop via VNC to the network, and the laptop is on a wifi connection that does have port access to the remote server. I am able to ssh to my laptop from the secure network when it is connected.
Is there a way of using ssh port tunnelling to work around this? Can I port tunnel to my laptop and have my laptop act as a middle-man between the firewalled network and the remote server?
