Connecting to a MUD through a VPN

Post by RedPanda » Mon Jan 28, 2013 3:04 pm

Hey all, first time poster and brand new user of Mudlet.

I have searched (possibly inefficiently) for an explanation on how to:

Connect to my MUD through an external vpn (BTGuard, but I'm flexible and will gladly take suggestions).

From what I've been able to gather Mudlet does not currently support such a function and the closest thing to a solution seems to be Mudbot so far.

The problem however, is that I know didley about programming and all I really need is a simple script/code-snippet) that "makes" Mudbot connect to my vpn(, or other proxy) before continuing on to connect to my mud.


Any suggestions?


Thanks for your time,
Red

PS. I run Mudlet 2.0 on Ubuntu 12.04

I just run Ubuntu in VirtualBox, and connect to my VPN via Ubuntu, and run Mudlet in Ubuntu.

Thank you for the response, that is pretty much exactly what I ended up doing as well!

Only difference is that I run Xubuntu to save precious hardware-resources (my pc is crap).

The only thing I would note however is that it would not appear to be neither the easiest, nor the most elegant solution, so other suggestions are still welcome.


Cheers,

Red

SOCKS5 support should be available pretty soon.
