So, my issue is that I have a Chromebook with crouton running on it. I've been using a browser extension to connect to a pre-set VPN to avoid any network's filters. But, two things are happening that I'm not sure how to get around/handle.
- The extension only tunnels traffic from the browser, and not external applications/processes.
- If I enable the extension on chrome in the ChromeOS environment, it works in that environment but not the Ubuntu one, and vice-versa (so each environment has its own separate instance).
My main issue is the first point because I want to use SSH to connect to my VPS because I can't do it normally on a network that I use a lot (and I really don't want to use a mobile hotspot.) I included the second point because I'm not sure which environment I should let handle the network settings with VPN tunneling or if they even conflict at all.
Overall, I just want to find a way to get around network filters to connect via SSH to my VPS. This can be through a desktop client or custom configurations, but I would prefer to not set up my own VPN server. I'd like to be able to do something along the same lines as using a pre-set one like in the Chrome extension. I have Ubuntu 14.04 with the Unity desktop environment installed.
UPDATE: I have included the output of
nmap -p 22 -sT vps.example (the
vps.example line is to hide my actual VPS server. I'm not actually typing
Nmap scan report for jp.jp (vps.example) Host is up (0.0036s latency). PORT STATE SERVICE 22/tcp filtered ssh Nmap done: 1 IP Address (1 host up) scanned in 0.26 seconds
