I have a ssh Client connectbot which I can use to connect to a ssh server and then use the remote server as a gateway .

I have socks proxy setup at the locally on android .I can configure Mozilla to use the socks proxy

I apparently need to use all apps and connect them to this proxy.

So I am using a VPN functionality which can route the data how can we route the VPN data to a remote ssh gateway.

  • As far as I remember a socks proxy can only be used on Android system wide if you have a rooted device. Otherwise only HTTP proxy can be used. – Robert Aug 17 '20 at 8:45
  • Isnt it the reason I am using a VPN to route system wide traffic – Ehtizad Zashkiyor Aug 17 '20 at 12:40
  • I am missing the question in your posted text. If you want to use VPN why do you include all those irrelevant components? If you want to use VPN you should install and set-up a VPN server (or use an existing VPN server) and connect your Android to this VPN server. But installing and configuring an VPN server is unrelated to Android, hence your question is wrong here. – Robert Aug 17 '20 at 13:13
  • Android doesn't allow us system wide proxy for ssh servers hence using a vpn --sshserver – Ehtizad Zashkiyor Aug 17 '20 at 14:18

    I’m voting to close this question because it misses a question that could be answered. – Robert Aug 17 '20 at 14:42
