Its an answer I got from questioning about port forwarding but I'm not sure what it means..
$ ssh lab_desktop -L 2200:lab_server:22 -vvv
my wild guess:
first get connect to lab_desktop and then again log into lab_server(port 22) and the received data from this connection will be forwarded to lab_desktop, port 2200.
is my wild guess right??
but I still don't understand what that '-vvv' means...
update after applying answer:
okay with creek's helpful answer&comments, I did what I can to make creek's answer work
again, let me be clear with the terminologies
mypc - the one that's doing all the typing
lab_desktop - ssh server
lab_server - final destination that I want to communicate with. This server will only allow connection from
lab_desktop. And one more thing: it will only allow connections through port 122.
okay since logging in to
lab_server requires username and password, I just made rsa authentication for
lab_server so that I wouldn't confront the trouble of entering the password all the time and just to set aside the possibility of password entering making the ssh command more complex.
After that I used the command:
ssh Black@lab_desktop -v -L 2200:lab_server:122
the below is the output

its long but I guess the only thing that I should be looking is the lines:
debug1: Local connections to LOCALHOST:2200 forwarded to remote address 188.8.131.52:122 debug1: Local forwarding listening on ::1 port 2200.
when I use my netstat to see if this is true(
netstat -tulpn | grep 2200) the output is :
root@chulhyun-Inspiron-3420:/etc/ssh# netstat -tulpn | grep 2200 tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:2200 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 14966/ssh tcp6 0 0 ::1:2200 :::* LISTEN 14966/ssh
so I guess the ssh hopping is established after all..
The problem now is when I try to use the port 2200 in
mypc. As Creek suggested, I need to exploit this port so I tried logging in with both my root account and user account but the result was a failure due to password..
chulhyun@chulhyun-Inspiron-3420:~$ su password: root@chulhyun-Inspiron-3420:/home/chulhyun# ssh root@localhost -p 2200 root@localhost's password: Permission denied, please try again. root@localhost's password: root@chulhyun-Inspiron-3420:/home/chulhyun# exit exit chulhyun@chulhyun-Inspiron-3420:~$ ssh chulhyun@localhost -p 2200 chulhyun@localhost's password: Permission denied, please try again.
The passwords are the right ones I'm sure of it. But I don't understand why it won't work...
I come up to this point. Could you help be reach further?
the new problem that I'm facing is discussed and solved at: Linux can't recognize the right password when ssh'ing?
