If ssh is blocked by your IT admin, this will not work. In that sense this isn't doing any holepunching. In a more traditional definition of holepunching it meant to establish connection between two machines behind NAT stateful firewall and neither have static public IP addresses.
Also, looking at the code, there seems to not much emphasis on security w.r.t ssh host key verification or bootstrapping the chain of trust with pre-verified credentials etc. Weird choices for a project with cypherpunk in it's name.
Though I think you can do this same thing with many existing tunnel providers too, no?
I sure hope not, demand ipv6.
I'm referring to the rapidly growing number of people behind CGNAT.
A comparative point is using Cloudflare and Argo tunnel which I'm currently using.
Recommendations for any “low end box” that’s about $12 a year and not a fly by night scam would be appreciated.
On the other hand, I've been using Frantech/buyVM and the dirt cheap $2.50 VPS from vultr, and never faced any problems with them.
One thing I'd like to see though is an "About Us" page, if you're a company; or maybe a link to your LinkedIn profile if you're an individual...
Reason: I'd like to know more about the company or person that I'd be dealing with before establishing a business relationship... I'm sure I'm not alone, either.
Anyway, best of luck with your venture!
I do see the benefit of the service, but I think it would be cool if they offered a self-hosted version. A LowEndBox for $20/year gets you a box and an IP to tunnel through.
It has the added benefit of being a full-on VPN, though I don't generally use it for regular internet browsing.
I know, some people have always-on computers, some people have low prices for electricity, some don't care about downtimes. But it all looks so fragile, too many "if".
If only there would be some layer to cover main instance outages...
What's the best way to embed an SSH session inside of HTTP requests?
