I have a NAS running Linux behind a firewall at home. I want to access it remotely using a few services such as a Transmission GUI (port 9091) and webmin (port 10000), but through an SSH tunnel on port 22.
For simplicity, I wanted to leave as many net-facing ports closed and only opened up port 22 to the NAS.
I tried configuring tunnelling in PuTTY (local port 10000, remote.ip.address:10000), but I believe I'm still hitting a firewall rule after a successful SSH login. Is this the correct use of SSH tunnelling?
