Accessing a FreeNAS Jail via SSH-Tunnel

If you ever need to remotely access an application running inside a FreeNAS jail, you can create an SSH Tunnel to the server and map the local IP Address and port of the jail with

ssh -L JAIL-PORT:JAIL-IP:LOCAL-PORT [email protected]

As an example, let’s say you can access your FreeNAS server via ssh with [email protected], the jail IP is 192.168.1.10 and it is running an application on port 8080.

To create the tunnel, you would use

ssh -L 8080:192.168.1.10:8080 [email protected]

Once the tunnel is up and running, you can access the service locally with localhost:8080 🎉

BarTop Mame Cabinet (under dev)

Who hasn’t spend a lot of money and time on arcades during childhood? What about build one and play all those games again?

Mame Cabinet

Browsing the web I found that a lot of people are building their own machines, building over a pc running a MAME emulator with a cool front-end. If you google images for ‘arcade cabinet‘ you will be amazed by what people are doing!!

I decided then to build my own, trying to use as much used stuff as possible, like a old computer, old screen and two usb game controllers that were broken but with the electronics hardware in perfect conditions. The cabinet will stay on the hackerspace from my town, TARRAFA HACKERSPACE, so we can set some championships, it will be fun for sure!!!

On this post, I will be giving updates on the progress (not much will be done during university semester, I hope to finish this project on holidays).
