    tunneling problem


    Computer X needs to connect to computer Y but Y is behind a router, which ports aren't forwarded. Is it possible for Y to connect to a computer, Z (standalone, no router) and for X to then connect to Z in order to access Y?

    I believe this can be done with SSH tunneling but have no idea how to do it because I'm new in this field.

    This may seem trivial, or just plain confusing, but can anybody help?

    I would install openvpn on X and Y with X being the server and Y being the client. That would be way much easier than getting the computer Z involved. And the connection is secure too.
