For a few weeks now, I have been unable to access digg.com through my work’s internet connection. I have been unable to determine where the problem lies, so I decided to access it via an SSH tunnel. Here is the command I used:
sudo ssh -l *_username_* -L:*_localport_*:*_remotehost_*:*_remoteport_* *_tunnelhost_*
With all the blanks filled in, here is my final command:
sudo ssh -l seppler -L:80:digg.com:80 epplersoft.com
Then, I modifyed my /etc/hosts file to and added the following line:
Now, I can access digg.com from work and home via my SSH tunnel.
…And that’s how I got my digg back.
