port forwarding (listen IP, not localhost)?

Here is my forward
ssh -L 5055: keng@hera

This puts localhost port 5055 right into port 23 on hera. I can connect to localhost and get to port 23 on no problem. Is there a way that I can make port 5055 available to the internal IP address, so telnetting to port 5055 on the server I'm running this command from? The IP of this server is, which is firewalled by hera. I want to do this:

telnet 5055

which would put me into port 23 on

Is this possible?
