How to connect client to server ?

By geminicoolguy2003 ·
Hello guys! Here is my problem:
I have a pice of client/server software(Windows XP based) let's call it X, the server part of X is installed on a computer on which i have physical access, located in a local area network with no public ip, i also do not have access to the router/nat server on that network. Now the problem is i want to connect to server X from my computer(visible from internet) running the client portion of aplication X over the internet, keeping in mind that the server X is not directly visible from my computer, and also i don't have acces on the target lan server/router.Let me tell you from start that a posible solution was found using ssh port forwarding, but is not taken into consideration based on different reasons, which i shall not go into here...
So my question is the following, is there posible to build an application composed of 2 pices, let's call one A1 and other A2, so that i can install A1 on target computer(running server portion of X), and A2 on my computer(running client portion of X) such that at first A1 establishes a connection to A2, and then client X connects to server X through that connection(A1 <--> A2), something like port forwarding done in ssh but in a application that i can write.
The 500 points question is how do i write such an aplication(A1, A2), or if is this possible?
Any hints or insights into a solution to this problem will be greatly apreciated.

Best regards, Alex.

If you do not have access to the router of the LAN yourself or if you cannot even talk to God, i.e. your local friendly System Administrator, you are not a bona fide user of the LAN or the "client/server" application.

It is rather unproductive and sad trying to go around the company's IT security policies. You may not have realised that these policies have a purpose: protecting the investment of the company's stakeholders. Full stop.

1.Agree strongly with Toiva if the network/IT security policy risks being compromised by uyour activity.

2. Assuming that your purpose in itself is legitimate even though you may not be able gain access to the LAN (for whatever reasons) then, highly dependent on the type of data and the GUI in use it may be possible to carry out a high level integration using a 'screen scrape' approach.

3. Refer back to 1..... I can not encourage subversion of policies designed to protect data....

such an application might also be called a 'worm' or a 'trojan horse' and would certainly flip out your system administrator
you a student, yes?
google 'hacking'
