Which of the following commands allow you to connect to local forwarded ports from remote hosts?

Port forwarding via SSH (SSH tunneling) creates a secure connection between a local computer and a remote machine through which services can be relayed. Because the connection is encrypted, SSH tunneling is useful for transmitting information that uses an unencrypted protocol, such as IMAP, VNC, or IRC.

What is SOCKS5 protocol?

A SOCKs5 proxy is a lightweight, general-purpose proxy that sits at layer 5 of the OSI model and uses a tunneling method. It supports various types of traffic generated by protocols, such as HTTP, SMTP and FTP. SOCKs5 is faster than a VPN and easy to use.

What is SSH tunneling and port forwarding?

SSH tunneling, or SSH port forwarding, is a method of transporting arbitrary data over an encrypted SSH connection. SSH tunnels allow connections made to a local port (that is, to a port on your own desktop) to be forwarded to a remote machine via a secure channel.

Is SOCKS5 better than VPN?

Like most proxies, SOCKS5 won’t encrypt your data, and will lower internet speed and stability. A good VPN, on the other hand, will encrypt your data as it travels from your device to the VPN server, ensuring that nobody can view it at any point on its journey.

Does Surfshark have SOCKS5?

SOCKS5 is just the latest, fastest version of SOCKS protocol.
