I'm trying to use Xbox Live out of the US, as If I
was in the US (Due to geographical
restrictions, not all feastures work outside)
I have a server located in the US, and a local
network located abroad. I want my Xbox
(which is connected to the local network) to
be able to access the internet using the IP
address of the server in the US over a secure
So far, I have managed to enable the gateway
in the local network to do so. This is what I
- Installed a SSH server (OpenSSH) and a
proxy server in the US server.
- On the gateway of the local network I
installed a SSH Client (putty) and configured
port tunneling for the ports used.
- Configured the gateway applications to use a
proxy server when connecting to the internet
- When the machine accesses the internet, it
goes thru the secure SSH tunnel to the server,
there the server proxy receives the
requirements and then reaches the internet.
So far so good.
Now, I need that theXbox do the same. In
other words, I want it to access the internet
thru the SSH tunnel already configured on the
Gateway by default. I can't configure the Xbox
in any way (just specify a gateway). I DO
know the ports that I need to open, so, If I
managed to somehow reroute all traffic thru
the tunnel by default, all I would need to do is
configure tunnels for all those ports.
I don't have a budget for this, so everything I'm
using is open source. The gateway works by
using Windows Internet Connection Sharing.
May be there is a better approach to this?
