I use my Mac at work. It connects via Ethernet to the 'internal' network. We also have a guest wireless network that my airport attaches to. The internal secure network has policy restrictions that ban certain websites and what not, not as a nanny but as a security measure because you are more 'on' the network with the hard wired one. The guest one does not. One practical issue is Dropbox can't make a secure connection to syncronize through the wired network. Dropbox and Firefox both support proxies, but it would be even easier to just have Firefox and Dropbox and Skype and (iChat and Googletalk and many others those are just off the top of my head) default to use the Wireless network. Can this be done? Assuming it can't be, to setup a proxy server, I have my Mac Mini at home all setup to receive it. I have port 22 forwarded to the Mac mini, and I have dynamic dns setup. When I go to my Mac and type 'ssh 'username'@'dynamicipaddress' -D 2001' it gets me to a login prompt (I have to type 'yes' to continue connecting). I try to type my 'username' password on the Mac Mini but it never connects. It looks like this: password: password: password: 'username'@'dynamipaddress' pasword: 'username'@'dynamipaddress' pasword: 'username'@'dynamipaddress' pasword: And then boom kicks me out for failing authentication. So, it seems like everything is connected properly via the proxy but....it isn't working. I did double and triple validate that I have the proper password. Can *anyone* help me resolve either of these two issues so I can get full functionality of some of my firewalled apps when I'm at work?
