How exactly can I install/use sshuttle under Fedora? It's not in the repositories

Lance on the page you linked to there is a giant headline about half way down the page that says "This is how you use it:" that covers both downloading and usage. Please spend time using already written project documentation FIRST, then ask questions here later. – Caleb Jun 22 '11 at 21:46

I think you can just get it from github either through git

$ git clone git://github.com/apenwarr/sshuttle.git

or simply download a recent package and unpack it

$ wget https://github.com/apenwarr/sshuttle/tarball/master
$ tar xvzf <filename>

And then simply enter the directory and run it. You can move it to /opt/ or anywhere else, where you need it, then hack some simple init scripts or whatever you require.

There is also a SRPM prepared for SUSE and with a bit of hacking probably you can rebuild it on fedora if you feel safer with RPM package.
