An interesting article entitled 7 Reasons to Hate your Code:

Port forwarding with SSH

April 14, 2010

You can port forward with SSH with the following command:

ssh -L 1234:localhost:1234

ssh -L 1234:

Now port 1234 is mapped to 1234 on the system with ip address

You can even tunnel twice (or more times) by port mapping port 22 onto the interim systems then mapping the final system to the local system.

ssh -L 22:

You can now map port 1234 to which is only visible to using

ssh -L 1234: user@localhost
