This is translation of my old blog-post from my previous blog:
I finally got around to setup tunneling of IP traffic over DNS. Used iodine for this. And now if I faced up open WiFi access point without Internet but with working DNS service – I’ll be online! 🙂 Have just tested – works fine.
It reminded me time for about 10 years ago when I did interesting thing on my work at “Iskra”. I didn’t have Internet on my PC. I didn’t have TCP/IP protocol at all in my network. Only people next floor had Internet. And we was connected by IPX/SPX via Nowell Netware server which doesn’t route TCP/IP.
Nobody couldn’t even imagine that! I programmed tricky proxy-server in 2 modules. First worked on my PC and waited for TCP connection. And then process data from TCP stream to SPX connection to my second server module with worker “on the other side” 🙂 And second translate all data in SPX stream back to TCP (and to our global proxy-server).
That feeling of first start when all works as must… 🙂 And you see your favorite web-site in browser. I worked not very fast – just 1 connection, but it was cool! 🙂
