Another SSH Tunnel Question

Here's the Diagram

Server A ----> Server B <----- Laptop

So basically Server A and Laptop can connect to Server B directly but you can't establish a connection from Server A to Laptop directly, so we setup a reverse ssh tunnel from Server A to Server B so that Laptop can connect to Server A thru a tunnel setup by Server A. So right now ssh to Server A from Laptop is solved.

Now, I have an app setup in Server A that I need to access thru port 443 on the Laptop, how can I do that?

Go to the man pages of SSH and look for -L

I'm pretty sure that will let you do what you are looking for, in case of doubt google for SSH TUNNELING.


ssh, ssh tunnel, tunnel, tunneling
