Re: Port forwarding confusion

Thanks for your input. Excuse my naiveness, but assuming I want to do the same
for ldap/sieve and co: can I do that through the same 2022 tunnel or do I
need a new one for each protocol?

Thanks, Joh

I'm in a firewalled LAN which provides a ssh-proxy

1) build tunnel
ssh ProxyUser@SSHPROXY -L 2022:OUTSIDEBOX:22

2) make connection
ssh -X OutsideboxUser@localhost -p 2022

What I now wish to do is to access an outside
mailserver (especially port 993)
through this proxy.

Assuming OUTSIDEBOX can connect to your
OUTSIDEMAILSERVER, you should be able to connect using
the tunnel in #1, then another tunnel:

2a) ssh OutsideboxUser@localhost -L
9993:OUTSIDEMAILSERVER:993 -p 2022

Then point your email client at localhost:9993
