Privileged ports can only be forwarded by root???
I have an ssh server and a vnc server. I am trying to accomplish an ssh tunnel. I have read the instructions. I wanna have traffic come through to port 80 and then forward to the vnc server(yes I know 80 is http thats fine). I get the privileged ports can only be forwarded by root. Running the command as root(yes I also know this is a bad thing) it gives me host key verfication fail. It does this also when I set the port higher than 1024 as a normal user so I guess my question is how do I generate a valid host key to accomplish this??
I know it is something like ssh_keygen -t but im not sure exactly what it should be
Im guessing I need to generate a key for my user account but I don't have access to ssh_keygen as a user and im not sure if it is safe to change the access on ssh_keygen
