OpenVPN to access restriced pages


HOME » Unix

I am looking for a method to go out with different ip in order to access some sites that are blocked by my local provider(I need to write scripts to retrieve data from thos pages).On Windows I have proxyes, but now migrating to Ubuntu due to better workinng with ipython notebooks for a specific kernel I need to do the same. Hoewer I am interested if cand I do this with open source things and not to depend on proxyes located in other locations. As I understand doing some research on the web there is a possibility with open vpn that if I understand correct allows to make this trick with private network inside wan network and ssh tunneling but my knowledge in this domain is very poor .Could this community help me with this issue?Tnks!

[ubuntu] Relayed http access to openvpn clients via openvpn server
Unix
The situation:
I have a number of OpenWRT based routers out there (OpenWRT is a LINUX distro for embedded devices), which I manage via a Ubuntu 8.04 LINUX server they all connect to. The Ubuntu server has a public IP address (1.2.3.4 in the attached diagrams), the routers do not. To be able to connect to them the Ubuntu server is running an OpenVPN server, the routers connect to the server on start-up as openvpn clients. I can ping and ssh into the routers from my server - no problem.
What I want to achieve:
The routers have a web GUI which is accessed via normal http or https (don't mind too much). I would like to connect remotely to the routers' web interface
[ubuntu] 'Restriced Extras' installation

My Totem video player will not play many video files.
It says I need codecs for them, like for .mpg and .wmv files.
Will the Ubuntu 'Restricted Extra' package fix my problem and if so, how do I install it?
How to fix Adsense error: "Our crawler was unable to access the pages" when those pages had been removed and are 404 not found?
Unix

I have a website and we recently changed content management systems. With the new system came new URLs/hierarchy. Google Webmaster Tools doesn't have any issues with the site and I get no crawler errors. But AdSense seems to still be looking for URLs on my old site and I get tons of "Page not found" errors.

What can be done to get Adsense to crawl the new sitemap?

This is on the crawler errors page. It says "Blocked URLs" and then to the side of the URL it lists "Page not found."

It explains: "Our crawler was unable to access the pages listed in the ’Blocked URLs’ column to determine the content and display ads. Click the ’plus’ icon beside each domain to see an expanded list of affected URLs. When our crawler can’t access your content we won’t show ads, resulting in lower revenue and coverage. Follow the link in the ’Error’ column to learn how to correct these errors."

I just want it to forget these pages exist, because they don't anymore.


OpenVPN: Allow access only for local connections (via OpenVPN)
Unix

I was recently assigned a task to do set up a secure development environment. I am thinking of doing the following:

  1. Use OpenVPN to connect to the server.
  2. Use firewall rules to block all incoming connections outside the local network
  3. Services will include SHH, HTTP/HTTPS and git

Is this possible?

UPDATE: I guess the more appropriate question is how to block access outside the local network.


OpenVPN - SSH into OpenVPN client from OpenVPN server [migrated]
Unix

good day all

note: I had a look at this relevant link but it does not seem applicable since I am not forwarding my ssh, maybe between interfaces but that is already done

I have a remote VPS Server, its purpose mainly as a easy access point for all my/colleagues devices, i.e. my home server, mobile, laptop,desktop,etc.

My openvpn server has client-to-client and ccd options configured working perfectly.

SSH'ing into another device by its given IP works perfectly, e.g.

../../.openvpn/ccd/

android-phone
    ifconfig-push 10.0.0.34 10.0.0.33

windows-laptop
    ifconfig-push 10.0.0.30 10.0.0.29

if both devices are connected, then in my android terminal,

ssh user@10.0.0.30

I can access my laptop perfectly, no issues, but whilst is my server terminal, server meaning OpenVPN server

ssh user@10.0.0.29
ssh user@10.0.0.30
ssh 10.0.0.29
ssh 10.0.0.30

all yield this error

ssh: connect to host 10.0.0.29 port 22: Connection timed
