I have a linksys router flashed with dd-wrt v24 vpn firmware. I a using PuTTy as my tunnel program. At school there is a firewall that prevents you from being able to go on quite a few site such as yahoo answers. I am trying to bypass this by running an ssh server on my router at home so that I can connect to it from school and have my home router process my request as opposed to the school router. My problem is that every time I try to connect to either port 443 or port 80 I receive an error message saying "Server unexpectedly closed network connection". I think this may be because these ports are used for internet access, but many other people online say that they have the ability to do this. This does not happen on any other open port at school. I also know that these are open ports not only because I can connect to the internet with them, but because I used a port scanner and it picked up these as being open. I think it is a problem with my router configuration, but I can't figure out what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tyler, we will not assist you in bypassing your schools network/security settings, as this directly violates our Terms of Use. If you have any questions or concerns in regards to GeeksToGo's policies, please feel free to contact a Moderator/Administrator.
