    Hi,

    I'm using a WRT54GS at home, directly connected on my dsl modem.
    I want to set up an 'anonymous' websurfing at my work computer using my home connection . In fact use the WRT54 as a proxy.
    I think it looks like something like that :

    WORK COMPUTER <--> SSL <-->WEB<----> HOME ADSL MODEM <--> WRT54GS <--> HOME ADSL MODEM <--> WEB

    Is it possible to setup such a thing with DDWRT ?


    Thnaks in advance !

    DD-WRT has a feature called SSHD that will do exactly what you want. You can search on this forum for more information on how to setup.

    Good Luck :thumb:

    Thanks Sufrano 63 .

    I'm search on the forum and found some answers (on posts from you :) but I'm not familiar with SSHD and Tunnelier .

    At this time Alchemy is on my router (I will change to DDWRT this week end :p ) and Alchemy has SSHD so I activated it with a key and port 3700.

    In order to try it I installed Tunnelier on the LAN side of the router (Tomorrow I'll try to setu up the client on my office computer) .
    I connect with Tunnelier on port 3700 and it asks me for some authentification . After 15 minutes of tricks, I was connected on SSHD with a public key AND my router admin password (is it normal ??!!) But OK I was connected :)

    But after I'm not sure ...I guess I have to setup the embedded proxy on Tunnelier and setup Firefox to connect on that proxy .

    But how to re-route the output of the embedded SSHD on the WAN side of the router ??? I have to setup something in order to to this ?

    here is some more info. on how to setup ssh tunneling with wrt54g.
    http://hetos.de/sshtut.html
    On the Tunnelier services tab enable SOCKS/HTTP Proxy Forwarding and set as followed:

    - Listen Interface = 127.0.0.1
    - Listen Port = 1080

    I used Firefox, put the above info on SOCKS host and choose SOCKs v5. Once you're done all your traffic will routed through your wrt54g and encrypted.... :thumb:

    Thanks it works !!! :cheering:
    But the connection is unstable .
    Maybe it will be more stable with DD-WRT ?
