tcpgate is a daemon that listens on a port for connections, and when the connection is made, proxies/bounces it to the host/port pair specified in the config file unmodified. Very simple, but very useful when you need to get around a bad route/firewall. Latest version has IP-based access control option.
gunzip -c tcpgate-0.0.1.tar.gz | tar xvf -
example of config_file
to_port - port to which the packets are proxied,
to_host - the host to which the packets are proxied,
port - port that tcpgate listens on
log_file - file where tcpgate writes the log :)
ip_rules_file - if present, enables IP-based access control, and must contain a set
of allow rules. Any host not matched by those rules will be denied connection.
The above example will allow localhost to connect, as well as any machine coming from 18.104.22.168 subnet
