ssh -L 3000:FORD:22
Also would this only allow me to communicate with host FORD or would it forward to any webserver I needed.
Only FORD, cuz you have to tunnel to a specific address. Some examples here
. Btw, you need to make sure Sshd runs on FORD and you have a valid account there.
*OT1, but another fine piece of work to achieve encrypted port fwd'ing, when both hosts aren't running ssh (but you got an account on both) is stunnel
which uses SSL.
*OT2, if this really was about firewall piercing & proxying out to other servers you should rephrase your question :-]
