ssh tunneling problem

I am traveling outside the US and need to do a tunneling to my server in the US to run an application.

When i do simple ssh, it works fine. However, when I do the tunneling with -ND, it stay at the password prompt after I enter the password and never return the shell prompt.

Does anyone know what I should be looking into to fix this problem.

It is the purpose of -N to have this behavior. Leave it out.
