How can I establish a reverse ssh tunnel with my ./ssh/config file?
I'm trying to reproduce this command
ssh -R 55555:localhost:22 user@host
in my .ssh/config file so that when I type
ssh host I'll ssh to the host as user and with a reverse tunnel. The commands accepted by the config file are more verbose counterparts to the command line flags. Based on the ssh manpage and the manpage for ssh_config, it seems like the corresponding setting is BindAddress.
In my .ssh/config file I have:
Host host Hostname host User user BindAddress 55555:localhost:22
This, and slight variations of, result in a connection refused when I try
ssh localhost -p 55555
once logged in on the host. The same works fine if I explicitly give the command at the top when first sshing to the host. My config file does work without the reverse tunnel command;
ssh host logs me into host as user.
