Any way to setup ssh tunnels better?

    I noticed that the recent 0.53 build in 1.28 has a modest amount of the features that OpenSSH contains for setting up port forwarding and tunnels via SSH.

    Unfortunately, it seems like the documentation/usage is scant since most people go the openssh route in this case. I'm on a WRT54GL, so my space is limited and dropbear should serve my needs.

    I'm looking to setup 2-4 ssh tunnels on the router that I normally use a client-side app or launch via the Terminal on the router. Normally, I run with -D and setup a SOCKS proxy since I'm only accessing out and don't need in.

    Is this possible with dropbear and automating via a script or webinterface? dropbear looks to support pubkey auth, remote tunnels so I can setup the http proxy, and is only missing SOCKS support without piping to an external binary like srelay.

    OpenVPN would be far too excessive and also not possible since I lack root on the remote hosts.

    i suggest building openwrt for your GL with openssh and without webgui (luci).
    It should fit just fine.
