Advanced: SSH Tunneling problem


Recommended Posts

So here is the deal. I have a computer at home and a computer at school. The school obviously wont let me forward ports so uTorrent will correctly work.

Right now I am trying to set up a SSH tunnel from my school comp to my home so I can use my connection at home, from school.

I have successfully set up the SSH and I am able to use the connection from my home computer to download the torrents on my school computer (avoiding the school firewall)

The only issue I have right now is that my uTorrent firewall status went from the yellow triagle (pre-ssh) to a red circle (post ssh). I don't have my utorrent port forwarded on my school network, but I have it forwarded on my home network, and home PC.

uTorrent on my PC at home gives me a green light so I know that it is set up correctly

Does anyone have any ideas as to why I can't get a green light?

Thanks if you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to answer them.

UPDATE: It looks like everything is working fine. I am only getting the red light because uTorrent is checking is my uTorrent port against my school address instead of my home.
