Provides a SOCKS5 proxy on localhost port 8080 which will tunnel all connections through srv1 and run in the background.
Say I have configured a fully optimized squid server A listen on [xxxx:xxxx::xxxx]:3128, within ISP_foo.
But when I was with ISP_bar , I can not access the proxy with full speed due to ISP's limit upon the normal clients among different ISP.
If you are curious where the ridiculous ISPs are, I'll tell you the truth --that's CHINA.
However, servers' network connection is not enslaved to that limitation, especially with IPv6.
So, I can do this socat linefu on a server B of ISP_bar.
me >> B(ISP_bar)>> A(ISP_foo)
On a machine behind a firewall, it's possible to pass the proxy server address in as a prefix to wget to avoid having to set it as an environment variable first.
This is the command to configure "cobbler reposync" to use a specific proxy setting to mirror locally the content of a specific remote repository.
Prompts the user for username and password, that are then exported to http_proxy for use by wget, yum etc
Default user, webproxy and port are used.
Using this script prevent the cleartext user and pass being in your bash_history and on-screen
This creates a persistent ssh -i /path/to/key -ND local-IP:PORT User@Server connection. You may have to install autossh. -f puts in daemon mode. if you are having trouble, try it without -f.
