That's a local forward, but what you're describing is a remote forward.
I'm assuming the command is correct but the description is wrong
(since you also said it works w/out the -b.
Anyway, that command will try to bind the client's end of the SSH
connection to 127.0.0.2, so what you're trying to do is make an SSH
connection from 127.0.0.2 to your remotehost. Sending the connection
out 127.0.0.2 won't go anywhere (hence the "no route to host" error).
What you need to do is this:
ssh -L 127.0.0.2:80:localhost:80 remotehost
