I would like to login on a client without a public IP using portforewarding.
I thought I could do this by having one server with public IP where
the client forewards its SSH port using:
ssh root@server -R 2222:server:22

This forwards the connection back to the server, not to the client. You probably want "ssh root@server -R 2222:client:22" or "ssh root@server -R 2222:localhost:22"

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
