Ok, so my work has free wireless public internet, but it's blocked for everything but HTTP, i can download, i can use MSN, but i can't play any games, nothing will connect, basically only ports 110, 80 and 25 are open, i have been looking for 3 weeks a definative way to tunnel through the firewall to get eve to connect, i have so far downloaded: SSH Secure Shell, Freecap, GIT, HTTP-Tunnel, PingFu Iris, Proxifier, stunnel and Your Freedom, i've also downloaded SOCKSCAP, 4 different versions of the damn thing, and everytime i go to install it is has a popup saying "do you wish to install SocksCap V2 now?" i click "ok" and it shows the loading bar for about 1 second then it vanishes and does nothing, then the process just sits there doing nothing until i finally force it to end (i left it running for like an hour) i have seen it mentioned that Freecap can do the job of Sockscap but i haven't figured out how, nor have i found a nice guide on how to set any of these programs up properly, is there anyone that can give me a step by step guide on how to get my eve to connect using the programs above, or even another program, no i have no access to the company firewall and yes i am allowed to use it like this, one of the IT guys i spoke to said i should try tunneling to get games to work on the long night shifts we do here, that's where i started all this hunting around for software that is able to do it, i'll pay 100mil to the person that makes me a guide and gets me connected to eve at my work, i've spent 3 weeks screwing around with this so far and i'm just about ready to bang my head into a wall repeatedly.

If you need anymore info about my setup etc grab me on MSN at HavocA6@hotmail.com and scammers, don't even bother, the address is only ever used for MSN and i ignore the emails...

Can you VPN out (pptp via built in ms stuff) from the network? If so, set up a vpn server on your home connection, vpn to it and then launch eve from there. Works kind of handy.

Now if you can't, then you could try ssl vpn or switching the pptp ports on your client server to 80, 110

VPN works better than bouncing plus your session is encrypted so it will bypass most monitoring set ups.

Would if i could but my home ISP blocks it for some stupid reason.. Confused

I even tried routing through my homes router, since i have a DSL-504T it has a built in HTTP server, i enabled it, but could never connect to it, damn ISP Confused

It really depends on how your company has set up their "connection policy" (for example they allow everything but specific entries or they block all but allow specific entries).

Depending on this it may be possible that almost none of the programs will work or that you can simply work arround with useing a program installed on your home computer.

This guide will describe so very detailed on how to install, set up and what kind of complications you may run into.


Anyway as long as you can manage to connect to your home computer it should work.
Or in case it fails convince the network admin to allow 1 port to your home ip if you cannot manage to connect to it at all even by changeing ports used to connect to your own computer / ip to "allowed" ports.

Good luck Smile

Keep in mind that to tunnel, you need somewhere to tunnel to. Either this means you're running a tunnel on a home computer(which may or may not be a problem due to bandwidth and security issues) or you need to pay for a commercial service(on the order of $5/month). You'll also need to find a way to get SOCKSCAP to install, it's the de-facto application for this kind of stuff.

On a related note, there's no guarantee this would even work. SOCKSCAP binds to a program when it's being launched via SOCKSCAP, EVE works by running a loader which in turn fires up the main executable.

You lost me on this one. Are you sure it's your ISP and not your own firewall blocking you?

P.S. Please break your origional post into paragraphs... somehow..

Here is another how to thread from these boards:

Forum Link

I had better luck using teraterm and tssh extension, but your mileage may vary Cool

The main thing is you have to have a remote SSH site to be able to connect too, a tunnel has to have both ends setup. The nice thing is if you control the remote box you can set your SSH to respond on any port, including port 80 (normally for a webserver) to get around firewalls.

Luck!!

I have an account at www.rootshell.be that i believe can be used to SSH Tunnel to, but i haven't been able to get it to work as yet Confused

And my ISP isn't supposed to be blocking me, but they block anything which they think to be hacker traffic, stupid i know, i tried running a TS server at home ages ago and i couldn't get anyone to connect to it, i know it wasn't a firewall issue cause it was running on a dummy box in a DMZ on my firewall so anything and everything had access to it from outside, still nobody could connect, my ISP asked me to get friends to traceroute me and send them the logs so they could fix it by we ended up getting a TS server hosted so we never bothered to do it..

I'm going to go give that guide a shot now, but if i can't get it to work i may just need a dummy's guide made up for me, networking is one of my pet hates, i only learn what i have to when i have to Razz

I would try Hamachi to setup a VPN with your home computer and try to run it from there (maybe via Remote Desktop? I dunno). It's supposed to work without requiring any specific ports open - it can't be blocked by a firewall.

You can also try using LogMeIn to run it remotely, I know someone who has done this and it's good for most "safe" in game activities (change skill, mining etc).

I use your-freedom

1. Register with http://www.your-freedom.net. Subscribe to the basic package. It has a 2 hour disconnect limit which is annoying but if you really need this then it's worth paying for.
2. Download the latest client. Make sure you get the full installer (28Mb) or so
3. Install your-freedom
4. When you run your-freedom you'll need to configure it. The settings I use are as follows...

Initial Server

Address - ems01.your-freedom.de
Port - 443
Protocal = https

Options - leave as they are

Account Information - enter your login details that you provided on step 1

Proxy Settings - Leave blank.

Once you've configured your-freedom, you'll need to go to the 'ports' tab and configure eve-online. All you have to do is add a new local port foward

Local Port: 26000
Remote Address: 87.237.38.200
Remote Port: 26000

The final step is to start eve-online. Instead of connecting to Tranquility though, you change the server to 'localhost' and with luck, and if you've started a your-freedom connection first, you'll be able to connect to the server.

Now I used to download SocksCap too but it seems to me I don't need to. I don't really understand why not but I don't. But if it seems you have to then download it from socks.permeo.com/cgi-bin/download.pl.

100m to Kerosene please.

I use http-tunnel and proxifier. On http-tunnel click on add port and enter the following:
IP- 87.237.38.200
Port- 26000
Local port- 26000

On proxifier go into options//proxy settings.

add the following and enable it:

IP- 127.0.0.1
Port- 1080
Type- Socks 5

If you're getting bulk data, it's working. You can go to the 'streams' tab to see the progress. You'll see you have to download about 3Mb of crap before you can play the first time. It's a one-off though as it's rebuilding your machonet crap with the new host.

After downtimes you have to download 600k or so every time still but that's only a one-off til the next downtime. Just be patient for the first time.

OK, the problem with tunneling, is that really, you need an endpoint.

Something like this
Work PC <---> Home PC <---> EVE


You 'relay' your connection through the tunnel, to the end destination.

Now, with only ports 110, 80 and 25 available, that gives you a really short list on how to do it.

Suggestion 1:
Use VNC on your home computer: http://www.tightvnc.com Set it's port to 25, and then connect from work, to home. Start EVE client on your home machine, and off you go. Sadly, unless you have a really ninja connection, this will be slow.

Suggestion 2: SSH tunnel.
Similar configuration to above, but you need to run an ssh daemon on one of the ports you're allowed on your home configuration. I've always found this way easier with a linux box, but I believe it should be doable on windows, perhaps with http://www.cygwin.com

ssh -g -L <whatever number>:eve IP:EVE Port you@your_home

Then you'll be able to connect to localhost <whatever number> with your eve client, and it _should_ be forwarded.

Now, exact details of setting up ssh depends on ... well for starters on what you've got available at home. If you're running under windows, it's not something I've done, but I think you should be able to set up sshd to use public-private key authentication (necessary, because windows doesn't have 'login' in the same sense) and do this. Cygwin has an sshd built in.

Easier on linux though, since sshd will almost certainly already be installed and running, so it's just a question of setting a new port number.

Not really what you are looking for, but some people might find this useful.

I play EvE on my home PC from work using the technique below..

At home I have FreeSSH running and a VNC server. I'm also subscribed to a DynamicDNS service to sort out my home IP address to simplify the connection. You don't need this if you know your home IP address, or if its static (i.e. external interface of home router etc.)

First I set up my router to port-forward SSH connections to my eve machine.

At work I then set up local port forwarding with an ssh shell (on Linux):-
ssh -L 5901:<my Eve machines internal IP>:5902 <My home IP address>

Then I just use VNCviewer on the localhost (using port 5901) which tunnels via the ssh shell to the VNC server running on my home PC (using port 5902). (These ports are forwarded via SSH so they dont need to be open on the firewall. You do need SSH traffic to be allowed, however.)

Up pops my desktop running EvE. Slow as anything, but okay for chats, changing skills or the odd bit of high-sec mining..

Im on the other side, im the ebil network admin. Tho Shalt not pass ! Twisted Evil

Seriously, if ports arent opened thats pretty much it. Using a vpn wont work as you need to connect to some specific machine and both points will need the same parameters. Also your ipsec (VPN) network might be filtered as well.

The only solution IMO, would be to remotely access a computer outside of your company (ideally your home machine) with a software such as GoToMyPC or netviewer.

FOR Restricted Firewall use PROXIFIER.

It Bypasses all connection ports to Socks4 without external server. I use it at my office.

NO HAMACHI, NO HOME PC, NO PROXY SERVERS...

Right this is how i do it.

I have a shell account that i can ssh into and i also use a program called proxycap, i've used sockscap before and it worked for me although as i'm more used to proxycap i'll tell you how to use that.

Proxycap Link

Ok to begin with lets configure proxycap:

1) Open up the preferences screen and under the proxies tab click create new proxy.
2) Choose "Socks V5" Proxy, Address: 127.0.0.1, Port: 1080
3) I have both checkboxes ticked at the bottom
4) Click OK and go onto the rules tab.
5) Click New Rule and Select "Tunnel through proxy" in the first drop down box and
"127.0.0.1:1080" in the second drop down box.
6) Next click "specifiy" and browse to your eve folder.
7) Double click on eve.exe and then press OK to create that rule.
8) Repeat steps 5 and 6 and this time go into your eve/bin folder and select
exefile.exe and create that rule too.
9) Ok that's proxycap sorted, minimise it and leave it running.

Now you need to ssh into your shell account.

Download a program called "putty" if you dont have it already and place it somewhere that is easy to navigate to, i just whack it in c: not in a folder:

Putty Link

Now open up a command prompt: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt

Now navigate to the place where you put putty. In my case i just type cd\ to take me to c:

Now type " putty -D 1080 username@shellaccount.com "

It should open a window and ask you for your shell account password, type it in and it should log you in as normal.

That's it!! You're done. Now just open up eve and it should let you connect. If you want to play any other online games just setup a rule for them in proxycap.

Ok, so my work has free wireless public internet, but it's blocked for everything but HTTP


http://docs.cs.byu.edu/docs/sshtunnels/index.php

(or google "putty ssh tunnel" for many more documents)

In short words, you run Putty on the work machine, and have the Eve port forwarded to a remote machine (an old Linux/BSD or even Windoze box at home), tunneling it through any open port, like 80. And as an added bonus it will be encrypted. Doesn't need installation either, so you can even use if if you're not an admin on the work box. Kinda like a VPN but simpler.
Disclaimer: Haven't tried this with Eve but it should work.

If your work blocks launching executables though, with Appsense or such, then you're out of luck (well, there might be ways, like tricking a stateful firewall into allowing you to communicate the way Skype does, but thats a bit arcane).

Edit: could be that this only works for an app which can be configured for a SOCKS proxy. Have to check, no time ... at work myself Wink

Edit 2: I think if it only works with a SOCKS enabled app, then adding sockscap to the setup is what you'll need.

Didn't see anyone mention ICMP tunnels. These often work when everything else fails BUT you need to have set-up an end-point already (i.e. computer at home) which you can then proxy back out of.

Google is your friend here but here's a few links to start you of:

Ping Tunnel
Itunnel
Little Article on it

I've used this concept to set-up a secure VPN back to my home office while traveling.

Good luck,

Isn't ICMP like UDP ... aka no "guaranteed" delivery? Anyway ... most clueless network providers I work with for business networks block ICMP anyway on the gateways - gives them a warm fuzzy feeling about doing something they don't quite grasp remotely related to security, while only breaking a few RFCs *sigh*

Problem also is, pingtunnel needs an app that can be configured for a custom port, me thinks? Or a tcpwrapper of course. End of the article you linked says he'd like to develop a wrapper that automatically sends all traffic through the tunnel but he's not there yet. Not sure, the putty solution might do that.

try using tunnel and/or sockscap with a free proxy server, i had to do that while i was at university. We had socks servers, but they blocked the ports on those.

Failing that your only other option is to get one of those port packet conversion layer programs, fiddely and unreliable, but its worth a go.
