ssh tunnel established - can't connect
I have an reverse ssh connection established from a remote machine - it's actually using autossh to keep the connection alive. I know the remote machine is active and is connecting because I can kill the process on my local machine, and watch the remote machine quickly establish a new reverse ssh connection.
But I cannot connect through the reverse port - I get the following:
Couple of questions:
ssh -p 7766 -vvv user[at_sign]192.168.1.108
OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-6ubuntu2, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007

1. Does the above debug code confirm that sshd on the remote machine is active?
2. If this remote ssh tunnel is established, is there some other way I can use it to connect to a shell on that remote machine??
BTW, this remote machine is miles away and not readily accessible.
