Would I need to install anything on the client(Windows XP)? Also I cant change any firewall settings and im afraid that something may set off the IDS. Would SSH need port 22 to be open on the client router? 😕
You can use putty, which is just a single executable, no install or anything to make the tunnel. You’ll also need the bonjour proxy, but as mentioned, that’s just a single java .jar file, so neither needs to be installed, per se.
As far as tunneling, ya, you’ll need to have port 22 forwarded to a machine (the daap server?) that’s running openssh server.
