Connect from work to home with ssh tunnel ?
I have a work PC with linux, ubuntu 17.10.
At home i have pfsense firewall with dhcp etc.
I want to be able to connect the PC at work with a ssh tunnel? to the pfsense firewall at home - so that I can sit at work, surfing, without the management sniffing around my data-packets.
The only connection they will see is that I'm connected to home IP. (like I was working from home)
How do setup this ?
So you want us to help you circumvent your works policies… Yeah good luck with that.. Just want I love to help people do -- less work ;)
And like I would follow some youtube link from such a question.. For all I know could be 2 cats going at it in an alley.
Hint -- run the openvpn wizard.. Run the openvpn client at work..
OpenVPN, as stated.
Perhaps you should ask your IT department at work for advice?

so consider twice before asking.
Although, doing so, will remove the need to connect to your home because you'll be at home all the time.
Go VPN, use a port like 443 and you might pull it off.
Be careful : this could be considered as a security breach - people might get upset.
Please do not get this wrong. This is not about doing less work. :-)
Its about connecting my PC at work to home, (home is far away, and not a 5 minut drive ;)) and getting data from home to work without "interference". Like HR/personal-stuff or classified material.
I want is not to compromise anything - I do not want company network and my home office network to be connected together. I just want to connect from office -> home, so its like i'm
on my network at home.
Thanks for giving me the openvpn suggestion.
Sounds like a good way to get fired. Or worse than that if "classified" material is involved, assuming you meant government "classified", and not company secrets/work product, which could still be a crime depending on the circumstances.
Locking thread. If you want to evade your company policies, you are on your own.
