Tutorial: Tun xbox into proxy server!

A while ago my AP U.S. History teacher tried to show us a site on the Ku Klux Klan and he was blocked by a filter from the school. I suggested he use a proxy but when he tried the IT guys had blocked every proxy you could find on google. That was when I decided I would make a proxy out of my xbox wi...

Xbox as a proxy server?

My school has very annoying filters designed to keep kids away from inappropriate sites. Everyone knows filters usually end up blocking more than that. My AP history teacher was trying to access a site about the Ku Klux Klan and he was blocked by that stupid filter. I suggested he use a proxy but wh...

why not just port forward port 22 to your xbox and SSH straight to your xbox?


because microsoft does not use ssh so the don't have an ssh client included in their operating system :P

can't get telnetd to work

Ok i know telnetd is insecure but frankly, there's really nothing that I would even care about if someone hacked my xbox. I always telnet into my pc and then ssh into my xbox from school, the problem is that gets really slow. I'd like to just forward port 23 straight to my xbox so I can just telnet ...

yeah what's the deal with the time?

Every time i reboot my xbox, gentoox time changes to June, 6, 2004. It is annoying. So i played around with the net time command and well this is kind of annoying. If i run the command net time -S 192.168.1.2(my computer's ip) it keeps giving me a time that is like ten hours ahead of the actual time...

what is a focus xbox?

I am guessing a focus xbox is a 1.6 a/b. The only reason I think that's what it is is because this site says that the screen is messed up on "focus xboxs" and every time that I've installed gentoox on a v1.6 the picture appears off the screen. Well that is my first question and my second: Does any o...

i can't use samba

at first i thougt samba was some sort of telnet client for linux but after running telnet and not being able to connect to my xbox i realised that that wasn't the case. so then i remembered that it said it had something to do with sharing with a windows network. so i thought netBIOS. i typed nbstat ...
