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.

Melg'puguasit, we stand with Wet'suwet'en. Decolonize: "Traditional Ecological Knowledge" (TEK) is the only thing that can help humans as a colonized planet continues to sink deeper into the chaos and destruction of broken, inequitable, and faulty systems that value money over Earth's many forms of life. European words and languages and accounting systems don't belong on Turtle Island. We encourage you to join us on a better path as we build and participate in a more Ecological Democracy that includes #AllThePeople as envisioned by Mark Charles, a Navajo Nation member running as the Independent candidate for President. #LivingWalls, not border walls.
