Configure client side – using Putty.exe
The benefit of putty is that it is a standalone executable. So you can run it without the need of administrator right of your PC.
- Create a tunnel.bat in the same directory of putty.exe
- Add the following line to tunnel.bat
- save the file
- Execute the tunnel.bat, login to the DS207+ using the newly created account (i.e. ssh)
putty -D 8080 -P 22 -ssh [external IP of DS207+]
Configure client side – using Bitvise Tunnelier
If you can install things on your PC, I prefer using Bitvise Tunnelier instead (it is a more complete SSH client with better UI and logs)
- Download Tunnelier and install it.
- Run Tunnelier.
- Setup Tunnelier
Host: IP address or DDNS domain name of your DiskStation
Port: Port number of the SSH Server of your Diskstation, i.e. 22
Username: SSH user
Initial meth: password
Password: Password of the SSH user
You can click ‘Store encrypted password if you don’t want to input the password again another time.
Now go to the ‘Services’ tab
Listen Interface: 127.0.0.01
Listen Port: 8080
Tunnelier Setup is DONE!
Click ‘Save Profile’ to save the setup.
Click ‘Login’ button to test the setup. If connection success, your setup is fine.
Configure client side – Setup Browser
Setup for Internet Explorer
Setup for Firefox browser
For firefox, you may also want to setup advanced setting to use remote DNS rather than your local one
- about:config in address bar
- scroll down the list and looks for network.proxy.socks_remote_dns, double click it to set it to TRUE.
DONE! Enjoy surfing all website now! For other application like MSN, all you need is to change Proxy setting of the application, you don’t need to repeat every single step again.
