- I don't like doing dev work on OSX, so I have a number of VMWare vms running Gentoo Linux where I do my actual development. OSX works great to provide anywhere-access via wireless and sleep.
- Most free wifi places such as Panera's, Border's, and Barnes & Nobel requires you to access their website first before they let you through.
- Besides, I don't like using VMware to bridge connections for Linux through WiFi.
- I don't like using a NAT since I'm often already behind a NAT
- I still need wireless net access when I'm sitting at a coffee shop
- I have tried antinat but it was way too complicated and I could get it to play without any authentication.
- When I was using a Gentoo linux laptop for my primary dev platform, I have tried using tsocks and it simply didn't work very well. proxychains, on the other hand, works.
- You definitely want to lock down nylon so that it only accepts inbound connections from the vmnet1 device
- I have an outgoing ssh proxy for WiFi anyways. Guess what proxychains does?
