Ssh Tunneling - cheat sheet


I was scrolling through the fediverse, and found quite nice traffic obfuscating solution, that could replace the always-working-but-slow built in port forwarding over ssh. I was looking especially for a way to transmit UDP over TCP, without showing the trafic content to the external party that monitors the traffic.

What i found

I found a wstunnel, that seems like a good alternative for ssh based solution. Furthermore, it has commands compatible with tunneling over ssh:). The github readme even refers to pretty nice ssh tunneling cheat sheet - now everyone can understand how it works!

What’s next?

I would like to test, how wstunnel works for carrying wireguard traffic, and both on classic x86 devices as well as small network devices based on OpenWRT.
