Hello, I recently ordered a VPS that has CentOS 6.2 version according to the "cat /etc/redhat-release" command.
I'm new to this, I obtained a VPS with two goals: Hosting and socks proxy server and VPN, for gaming related use and every day private use.
Now going into this knowing completely nothing and starting out I have initiated running a socks proxy with SSH using the command:
ssh -F -N -D 0.0.0.0:1080 localhost
I found this command on this page here: http://www.catonmat.net/blog/linux-socks5-proxy/
I have restricted access also by the IP tables example.
Anyways, I seem to be experiencing an issue and I really don't know if it's something that I personally would need to manage within my VPS or if it's a host issue. Through my proxy I have noticed two problems... one being unable to access a website through it and the other is an issue related to the MMO I am trying to play through it, but it gets a little more complicated and hopefully resolving the website issue will fix the game issue. I do also have tun/tap enabled on the VPS for if/when I get to running OpenVPN.
The site I am experiencing a problem with is: https://secure.ncsoft.com/cgi-bin/accountManagement.pl
It is the account management page for the NCSoft game.
Experienced error in FireFox:
The connection was interrupted
The connection to secure.ncsoft.com was interrupted while the page was loading.
Experienced error in Google Chrome:
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL
I have an unmanaged cheap VPS given to me as is, I have done really no configuration on it... I can access all other sites fine, including the https ones I have tested. I know from experience the two noticeable problems do not occur with other proxies, which lead me to believe it is either my VPS' configuration or my VPS host.
I appreciate any amount of support the CentOS community might be able to supply a new linux newbie. :)
