I'm trying to get internet to a Linux VM (Backtrack 5 on VMWare Workstation). Unfortunately I was told to not "bridge" the connection from the VM because it could be detected by our companies network admins.
Our company has a firewall and proxies for normal web browsing. I can get around it by ssh tunneling to a linux server (putty + ssh)
Is there a way I can get my Linux VM to have internet connection via SSH/Putty tunneling without it being detected on our corporate network? I'm not sure if I need to bridge my VM and change some settings on the Linux VM or if I need to alter VMWare somehow to grant internet to VMs via tunneling...?
Would appreciate any areas topics I should read into or any lead I can take to get accomplish this.
