Nice article about post port forwarding on post exploit

Penetration Testing Lab

The main purpose of port forwarding while performing a penetration test is to help us reach a specific port on a system that doesn’t exist on the same network.In order to understand this better let’s assume that we have compromised a system which belongs to two networks.The one network is the public that we managed to gain access and the other one is the private that other systems exists as well.

All we have to do is to set up a local listener to our machine that would communicate with the meterpreter session that we have opened from the compromised system.This meterpreter session will actually forward the port to the machine that is running the service and is not accessible directly from our system.

Let’s say that we have successfully exploited the system through a vulnerability and we have opened a meterpreter session.The first thing that we have to do…
