3G Dongle PAYG - port restrictions ?
Looking to purchase a 3G Dongle for occassional irregular use when I
am out and about with my netbook.
Had my eye on a 3 network deal 12GB expiring after 12 months (who ever
heard of buying a product to have it taken back if you dont use it -
but that is a separate topic!)
I am running a SSH server (bitvise) and would wish to be able to
tunnel directly back to my home network whilst using the 3G Dongle. I
can set the TCP port on the server to pretty much anything I like.
My question is whether this is likely to be technically possible or
whether the various networks will have screwed things down. At a push
I could change the port to port 80 (HTTP) or use Socks4/5 but I would
think I would need to know the proxy server IP address.
Any help, suggestions, or recommendations most welcome.

Vodafone certainly don't block SSH. I doubt the other networks do either.

The most common SSH clients have SOCKS support built-in.
