Need help connecting to DC++ through SSH

Postby metalinvader » Sun Sep 17, 2006 6:23 pm

Hi all,
I am behind a firewall which blocks access to p2p applications.
i have created a root shell account at rootshell.be and I connect to their server using this software called Putty. I forward port 1080 while connecting to their server. I guess this method is called Tunnelling (i am not very knowledgeable about these things). So what my shell connection does is it helps me browse the net through rootshell.be's server and gives me a different ip while im on the net.
But im not able to connect to DC++. I tried searching a lot for documentation which can help me in this specific case but im not able to find anything.
And also,
In the DC++ connection settings, I selected Socks5 and I entered "localhost" as my socks IP and port 1080 (i use the same settings in my browser).
On connecting to a hub it initially says "connected" and then after 2 seconds it immediately says "disconnected".
Any pointers on whats happening?
Please help me out someone.
Thanks

yes, but it's a DC question. most regulars use the "view posts since last visit" button, so they will see it :)

maybe no one cares abot direct connect, or the ones who do are busy with other things right now. what *I* noticed was that whatever the age of the other posts on this board, the questions were answered promptly. i suggest you have a little patience. we are not going to start putting all the threads in the wrong boards just because certain people can't be bothered to wait. this thread isn't even a day old yet :roll:

I don't think you are going to get it working like that. With SSH tunneling you must set where the packets are sent to at the other end of the tunnel. Obviously you can not set this with DC because it depends on the peer you want to connect to. Maybe if there's a socks server at rootshell.be you can set that in SSH tunneling destination. So your setup would be like DC++ -> SSH tunnel -> rootshell.be socks proxy -> net...

This is what I would try:

In DC:

SOCKS5 localhost 1080

In SSH

Outgoing tunnel
listen port 1080
destination host: rootshell.be
destination port: rootshell's proxy's port

... maybe. :)

Thanks for your reply Asuran.
Can you please clarify one point for me: how can I find out what rootshell.be's socks proxy port is?

thanks...
