    I was trying to forward a remote port to one at local (but not
    127.0.0.1) by doing :

    ssh -b 127.0.0.2 -L80:localhost:80 remotehost

    but got :

    ssh: connect to host d2 port 80: No route to host

    everything works fine without the "-b 127.0.0.2" option, and I tried a
    few 127.0.0.* addresses but all apart from 127.0.0.1 had the same error.

    I am using
    OpenSSH_4.0p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7g 11 Apr 2005
    on Cygwin / Windows 2000

    Did I miss anything (like setting up specific entries for the route
    table or installing extra driver) before running the ssh client?

    Thanks!
