While the -g option works with local forwarding, it does not work for
remote forwarding. This option should allow other computer to access
the
ports being forwarded. This is done by binding the socket to the
wildcard
interface and not to the loopback only. (This is what i understood)

Is this a known limitation? a security feature? or am i wrong?

Essentially a security feature - i.e. it's up to the admin of the server
to allow it or not. See GatewayPorts in sshd_config(5).
