    Hi all,


    One of my mates needs his mail in the office, but the network blocks pop access on port 110 with an outside destination.

    I would like to set-up anything to help him out. I was thinkikng about forwarding inbound traffic on port 8080 on my Fedora Core 3 to the pop server of our ISP on port 110... Is that doable? What should I google for?

    Any other solutions for this? Any suggestions are welcome.


    Thnx

    Is SSH allowed?

    You can set SSH up to do port forwarding.

    man ssh
