One of the best tools ever is ssh. I use it to do a remote dump of my cloud server to my laptop at home. Without it, I'd have to rely on my cloud provider's snapshots and those, while useful, cannot be downloaded.

@indie Never tried socat. Might have to look into that one.


$ apt install socat

$ ssh -o ProxyCommand='socat - socks4a:<proxy-name> %h:%p' usernametologin@12.345.65.89

@indie In my case, since I use OpenBSD, it's going to be pkg_add.
