I am connecting to a free public wifi, I want to connect or use other ports like FTP and SSH. What are the possibility to override it? In order to connect to the internet, They are requiring me to add their proxy on my HTTP and HTTPS settings, under network (Mac OSX). I've asked them why I can't use other ports and they told me that their internet setting is only open for HTTP and HTTPS port.
Is using VPN be able to override their settings? Please advice some way around if your connecting to a public wifi and you want to use other ports.
Just FYI, I need to use the other ports like SSH and FTP to manage my FTP server. I am using a MacOSX environment.
I'll try to add detail as much as I can, I'm not really sure about their network structure as i'm not good at networking and I haven't seen their setup. But I know they have wireless router in every corner where you can get signal from it. I think it's also the same setup as public libraries are setup, you can only browse that are related to research and some sites like p2p, hacking, etc are being blocked.
I've looked some tutorial (youtube) how to use VPN to bypass restriction, And most of them needs to connect through SSH first. Unfortunately, the port for SSH is already block. Am I on the right track?
Thanks for you responses! :)
