I have a raspberry pi plugged into my router at home, running raspbian. Before I left for work I:

  • Configured the router to forward ports 80 and 22 to the pi
  • Configured dyndns

This all works, and I can access the pi using http and ssh. The problem is, I forgot to forward another port that I want to use! What I want to do is connect from the pi to my home router's web interface to forward the other port. The router interface is awful: heavy and graphical, and uses javascript. What should I do?

  • try lynx or use ssh proxy forward.

  • lynx: To view the Web interface of your device, JavaScript must be supported and enabled on your browser! Please enable scripting and refresh your browser.

Setting up an SSH tunnel worked just fine. From work:

ssh -L 8080: <pi>

Then connecting to localhost:8080 from my browser.
