Hi there, I am a graphics guy and we have 10 OS X graphics boxes here at work. The only thing is that we are behind a firewall Sad
And IT wont open any ports.

I'm just wandering if anyone knows how I can GPU mine from behind a firewall??? I was able to run bitcoinplus.com but that is CPU only and is well useless.

I have tried Diablo with mining.bitcoin.cz but it fails to log in.

I think it might be a problem with getting through port 8332 but like I said IT wont touch anything.

Any advice would be well appreciated.

You can use an SSH tunnel to forward ports:

Code:
ssh -L <localPort>:<RemoteHost:Port> login@ssh server

then if you connect to locahost on the localport your traffic will get moved though the firewall!

Beware the weak hands!

I know this is an old post, I am trying to connect cgminer through an ssh tunnel, but not much luck. Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same problem, there are pools who use port 80 or 8080 for mining.


https://www.f2pool.com/
stratum+tcp://stratum.f2pool.com:80


https://www.litecoinpool.org
stratum+tcp://litecoinpool.org:8080   (London, UK)
stratum+tcp://us.litecoinpool.org:8080   (New York, USA)
stratum+tcp://us2.litecoinpool.org:8080   (San Francisco, USA)
stratum+tcp://ltcpool5brio2gaj.onion:8080   (Tor hidden service)
