I'm using a public wifi hotspot. Usually when I connect to these, I immediately connect to my college VPN. On this hotspot, only browsing works (no program other than a browser seems to be able to access the internet, this includes ping commands from the terminal). I'm guessing this is because of the firewall in use by the hotspot provider.
I'm given to understand that it should be possible to tunnel all of my traffic through an SSH tunnel, pointing to the correct port. I can set up a server on my home network to tunnel to, but it does not have a static IP. Is there a way around this, or possibly an easier way than SSH tunneling?
I've since set up a raspberry pi with a static ip on my home network. Can I either tunnel all of my traffic over ssh, via the RPi, or even just tunnel the VPN connection (that I would normally use, were the ports it uses not blocked over ssh (I'm not too worried about latency).
