Using SSH over the UCC wireless network

Most ports are blocked here. Took me ages to figure this out. This works on MacOSX. I guess for Linux it is the same. You can figure out Putty on Windows by yourself.

Edit your .ssh/config

Host short_description
    Hostname my_server.my_domain.tld
    ProxyCommand/usr/bin/nc -X 5 -x socks-proxy:1080  %h %p

So if you normally remote login by

ssh username@my_server.my_domain.tld

Now just

ssh username@short_description

when on the UCC wireless network. Hope this helps someone!
