There is some development I need to do on some remote box. Fortunately, I have shell access, but I need to go through a gateway that has AllowTcpForwarding set to false.
I took a peak at the docs and it says:
AllowTcpForwarding Specifies whether TCP forwarding is permitted. The default is ''yes''. Note that disabling TCP forwarding does not improve security unless users are also denied shell access, as they can always install their own forwarders.
How would I go about installing (or building) my own forwarder? My goal here is to setup a remote interpreter using Pycharm via SSH and binding it to some local port, that data fed through ssh, that through the gateway, and then to the development box where the code is actually run. I imagine I could somehow utilize nc or some other unix utility that'll help get the job done.
I know I can ssh to my remote box by doing:
ssh -t user1@gateway ssh user2@devbox
But obviously this option isn't available in pycharm. I'll have to be able to open some local port such that
ssh -p 12345 localhost (or variant)
will connect me to user2@devbox. This will allow me to configure the remote interpreter to use port
localhost to connect to the remote box.
