    ssh tunnel, sorta complicated


    Hi all,

    I am trying to run a web server on a machine behind a firewall from outside the network, which I have an account on (host A). I also have off-network access to a machine inside the network (host B). I would like to access the web server on host A through a browser by using host B as a relay. How exactly would I do this?

    I am thinking I could forward port 8000 on the physical host to host A and then forward port 8000 on Host A to host B, using ssh tunnels. But I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the commands...

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You can run VNC on the target host from the accessible system inside the firewall once you have a connection to that.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
