Here's what I have: A desktop and a laptop both behind a firewall, both of which can connect to an
ssh capable server.
Here's what I can do: Create a tunnel from server to desktop by running this command on desktop
ssh userS@SERVER -R 2224:localhost:22 -fN -p 2222
Then I can
ssh from laptop to server (pkey is enabled), then from there to desktop by running
ssh userS@SERVER -p 2222 ssh userD@localhost -p 2224
Heres what I want to do: Use
sshfs, and related connecting from laptop to desktop. I think I should somehow be able to do this using
ssh -L from laptop, but havn't figured out the correct nomenclature. I tried (from laptop)
ssh userS@SERVER -p 2222 -fN -L 2225:localhost:2224 ssh userD@SERVER -p 2225
thinking that this would log me directly onto desktop, but it didn't work, hence my question here. This attempt denied the connection, as the ssh port on server is 2222. When I tried the above commands replacing 2225 with 2222 it tried to log me on to the server as
userD just as it normally would without any tunnels. Am I on the right track with
ssh -L? How do I make it work properly? If you feel I have left out any important information, please let me know and I will attempt to clarify. Thank you.
