In my wifi surrounding I have a SSID that:
- blocks regular HTTP/HTTPS traffic.
- lets ping request through.
- lets uttorrent protocol through.

Any idea how to workaround http traffic?
Tor maybe?

Thks 4 ur attention.

Hi,

Assuming the blocking is based on port number, you can get a connection if you have some server you can connect to (so you can tunnel your traffic to that server).


Basically:

- you need some outside presence like a Gentoo server or computer
- find some port that will work on that network ( like the port used for ping or for the torrent traffic)
- Use ssh to establish a connection with the outside server, and use the ssh connecrtion as a (socks) proxy server to tunnel your http traffic.

Note that you need to setup the ssh server to accept connections on the port that you want to use. ( maybe first check if the regular ssh port works or not; it might just work on port 22).

Alex.

Thks lexflex, but setting a external SSH server isn't an option.

Situation has changed a little.

While I can keep blocking ISP as default route for torrent traffic because of big throughput,
I'd like to route my firefox http/https traffic to an alternate wifi interface.

I guess I could do some iptables work, as I have some knowledge in this regard, but I'm wondering if there is any faster alternative?
Using a local proxy maybe....

Any idea or advice?
