...trying to figure out an effective way to tunnel City of Heroes/Villains, I keep running into a simple obstacle: The game uses UDP heavilly, and the firewall I'm trying to poke holes in blocks most UDP in an effort to block the majority of games. (But they specifically
allow WoW, Half-Life 2, etc, etc.)
Found out the official port-list CoX uses: 2104, 2106, 6994, and 7000-7100, a wide mix of TCP and UDP on both.
TCP tunneling is trivial: PuTTY does it nicely. I use it for my Torrents a lot, in fact, to shuffle my data-connections around when I'm behind a firewall for example.
But I just can't find any kind of UDP-over-TCP program for Windows. :-/
OpenVPN works, but you need a machine 'outside' the firewall that you have full access to, to be able to put in the low-level TUN/TAP driver for Windows/Linux. So it's a pain to set up, generally.
Any ideas out there, folks?0 comments
