Re: X over a reverse SSH tunnel

You have to set
GatewayPorts yes
in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and be sure port 5050 is permitted by your host firewall to allow this forwarding to work for other hosts on the home side. You might also have to specify the interface to bind to. Try connecting with putty from the windows box to test it.

thanks i will test this


You might find it easier to run an openvpn tunnel.

quite possibly yes - if i run the server at home can i connect back to the 'client' ie work ?

Use a peer-to-peer configuration, not the client-server setup. As long as one end has a static IP (or dynamic dns) you can make it connect. If you only need to connect to the tunnel endpoint you can use private addresses for the tunnel and add routing for it on your home side. For more than that you'll need routing set up on both sides or NAT on the tunnel box.
