Think of sshuttle as a "poor man's VPN". You start

 

sudo sshuttle -r 1.2.3.4 0/0   

 

 

and when you surf to

 

http://ipchicken.com

 

 

you're IP is 1.2.3.4, as if you were on a VPN.   :good:

 

 

But sshuttle takes a whole different approach via python. If it works, it is great to use with a rental VPS or sth. like that. It may not work on all Linux versions, but if it does, it is less hassle to run and set up than "softether VPN".

sudo sshuttle -r 1.2.3.4 0/0
ssh: connect to host 1.2.3.4 port 22: Connection timed out
client: fatal: failed to establish ssh session (2)

I'm pretty sure 1.2.3.4 has to be a server with OpenSSH Server for which you have login credentials  :asd:
