I'm running a program that lets you interact with it in the browser. To do this you run the program and open "localhost:8080" in your browser (if 8080 is the right port).
However, I'm running the program on a server, and trying to access it on my own computer with my own browser through a SSH connection. This means I must use the same port in my SSH connection as the program uses. But that doesn't work, my theory is that the program and my SSH connection are fighting over the port.
So my question is, in other words: How do I access port 8080 on the server, without using port 8080 for the SSH connection?
Additional note: I have tried using X-forwarding (-X option) in my SSH connection, and running a browser on the server. That works, but is excruciatingly slow.
