Hello,

I'm no network expert at all so excuse me if I ask a silly question :)

I have set up my netflix on my desktop as follows:

- create an ssh tunnel to my server

ssh -D 5000 -N server.com -p 22 -l mylogin -v -4

- setup web browser proxy settings to

-- use localhost:5000 for *.netflix.com

-- connect directly for anything else

I have Nexus Player (android tv) and it turns out to be a PITA to do the same on android. So I wonder, if I hook up a lan turtle using usb otg, could i create a similar setup as described above and if yes, which modules would I use for that

thank you!

Interesting idea, I don't think you would even need a module for it. You can just use the console and set that up same ssh tunnel. You may be able to edit the autossh connection for that or create your own module for it. I don't think there is a specific module that would meet those requirements besides the autossh connection and I'm not sure what is involved in editing it to add the port forwarding portion or if the attached device would have access to that tunnel (now that i think more on it). But basically the lan turtle is a embedded linux console with two network ports bridged so I'm sure you could configure things to work as you expected it.

I haven't tried or tested it, but I'd be interested to know what you found out or if anyone has more specific ideas they can contribute.

that's the thing, i'm no network expert :) I guess i would have to use iptables and redsocks or something..

so, in words:

- any incoming traffic except http should pass through

- http traffic: lookup domain for ip or analyse http header to check domain

-- domain does not match *.netflix.com --> pass through

-- domain matches *.netflix.com: socksify connection and redirect to ssh tunnel

any pointers appreciated
