Rooting your G1/Dream Android Phone


Truth be told, this is just an introduction to what I’m going to discuss. I just figured I’d get your attention.

Now that I have it, I’ll briefly cover the different topics that the following posts will include, but not limited to:

SSH Keys and auto-login

I’m going to attempt to explain how to automatically log in from one PC to another with SSH client and server, and on windows using PuTTY and puttygen.exe.


Setting up an SSH Tunnel as a Proxy

  • You are being blocked by a proxy at work, university, or some other controlled network.
  • You want increased security over the wire.

When setting up an ssh tunnel, you’re merely routing traffic through a specific address and port. Seems pretty simple, and it really is, but you need to understand each part individually.
