I have to apply sudo chmod a+r /dev/dsp or /dev/audio but in my Ubuntu 12.10 i do not have such. Where is then the PCM sound file for ssh?

chmod: cannot access `/dev/dsp': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `/dev/audio': No such file or directory

I want to stream the sound output and input. So that i can capture any audio in/out to a file for recording.

/dev/dsp and /dev/audio (along with /dev/mixer) haven't been present in Ubuntu since 9.04. This is because they now use PulseAudio to manage the sound system. You're going to need to add a little context as to why you need them before we can help :) –  jackweirdy Nov 21 '12 at 23:46

You need to install pulseaudio's volume control and then use that to reroute the program you are recording with to the program you are trying to record.

(I will add screenshots a little later).
