Ok, so i tried to nmap a computer on the cable network here in my city.
It said the host seems down so I added the switches for zeroping and XMAS, now it says the host is up ...GOOD. but it just not proceeds anywhere and after some time I ctrl+c it to exit,

I assume that the box is behind a firewall and a PROXY. so is there a way to reach that (maybe by bypassing the proxy) box since i have root priviledges on that and still cannot remote access it.
Also if there is a documentation on bypassing the proxy server.

With nmap, if you set the option -P0 (do not ping) it will always say "host seems to be up... Good". This however does not mean shit. It does not mean the host is up, nor does it mean that there is anything on the other end to scan. All it means is you skipped the ping portion of the scan that verifies there truly is a responding machine on the other end.

As for actually getting through the firewall, well heh. That's where the fun comes in. Try doing a normal scan (not sure why you are using XMAS) and see what that comes back with. If in the end you don't see any ports open on the outside I don't think it's gonna make a lick of difference in helping you. You're screwed.

But you said you have root privs on this machine. Why not rootkit yourself, or even install some kind of trojan that goes out through the proxy to you? It is almost always easier to get out than it is to get in. Then you can have your remote access.

I have root privileges on the box not on the proxy so I dont see how the root kit will take me through the proxy server.
Ill do some research anyhow and report back if it does work
