My home computer is behind an ISP-level NAT which does not allow me to host game servers as a result.
I have a VPS which I use as a web server. I want to host a game server of Minecraft, but the VPS isn't powerful enough.
Both my computer and my VPS are running Linux. My computer can connect to my server, but the server can not open connections to my home computer.
What I would like to achieve is this:
- Some user connects to port 27015 on my server.
- The server then forwards all traffic from port 27015 on the server to port 27015 on my home computer via some connection that I opened with my home computer.
Can ssh do this? I know it can do the reverse. Is there some other program that does this if not?
