sshuttle: where transparent proxy meets VPN meets ssh

As far as I know, sshuttle is the only program that solves the following common case:

  • Your client machine (or router) is Linux, FreeBSD, or MacOS.
  • You have access to a remote network via ssh.
  • You don't necessarily have admin access on the remote network.
  • The remote network has no VPN, or only stupid/complex VPN protocols (IPsec, PPTP, etc). Or maybe you are the admin and you just got frustrated with the awful state of VPN tools.
  • You don't want to create an ssh port forward for every single host/port on the remote network.
  • You hate openssh's port forwarding because it's randomly slow and/or stupid.
  • You can't use openssh's PermitTunnel feature because it's disabled by default on openssh servers; plus it does TCP-over-TCP, which has terrible performance (see below).

Obtaining sshuttle

  • Debian stretch or later:

    apt-get install sshuttle
    
  • From PyPI:

    sudo pip install sshuttle
    
  • Clone:

    git clone https://github.com/sshuttle/sshuttle.git
    sudo ./setup.py install
    

It is also possible to install into a virtualenv as a non-root user.

  • From PyPI:

    virtualenv -p python3 /tmp/sshuttle
    . /tmp/sshuttle/bin/activate
    pip install sshuttle
    
  • Clone:

    virtualenv -p python3 /tmp/sshuttle
    . /tmp/sshuttle/bin/activate
    git clone https://github.com/sshuttle/sshuttle.git
    ./setup.py install
