ssh port-forward using rdiff-backup guide


Is it possible for usin ssh port-forward for this rdiff-backup guide?

I have studied this guide, but I should use port-forward for using ssh from 22 to 1999 or other port.

However I could not find out how to make port forward for this guide.

Any help would be appreciated.

You'll have to be a little more clear on what you want to get a useful response. Are you just wanting to obfuscate the port number? Or are you trying to go through one machine to reach another? Describe step by step what you want to accomplish.

choogendyk/ Thanks for your kind comment.

I have 2 machine.

One is 192.168.0.2 and another is 192168.0.10. And 192.168.0.2's ssh port is 8022 and 192.168.0.10's ssh port is 22 - (if possible I want to change this port also for securi).

According to the Unattended Backup How-to guide, the rdiff-backup command has "no-port-forward".

Quote:
command="rdiff-backup --server --restrict-read-only /",from="Win7_backuphard",no-port-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding,no-pty
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAAB[...] backup@Win7_backuphard
I should use port 8022 for ssh. If possible, please let me know.

OK, so the restrictions you've quoted are for the certificate you set up for automatic login. You could choose to remove the "no-port-forwarding" from those restrictions.

You haven't said which machine is which. I'm presuming that the machine you are connecting from is the one with port 22, and the machine you want to connect to is using port 8022. That's not really going to involve port forwarding. You want to use a command `ssh username@server.example.com -p 8022`. The "-p" parameter tells it to connect using the alternate port 8022.

I'm not using rdiff backup, but there is a post on their mailing list that addresses this configuration issue here http://www.mail-archive.com/rdiff-ba.../msg02171.html.
