SSH Port Forwarding

I'm trying to forward a remote port (8085) to a local port (3333).
Keys are setup, and I can ssh into the remote machine without needing to manually authenticate.

In remote machines ssh_config, "GatewayPorts yes"

The only thing I can think of is the remote machine possibly not having the correct iptable entries, currently:
-A INPUT -p tcp --dport 8085 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8085 -j ACCEPT

... or, in the process of creating this key, this is the first time I actually provided a password for the key... instead of hitting enter twice like most people seem to do

Here is the output of my ssh command:
ssh -v -nNT4 -R *:8085:localhost:3333 me@myhost
ssh -v -p 22 -nNT4 -R *:8085:localhost:3000

debug1: Found key in /Users/me/.ssh/known_hosts:2
debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct
debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent
debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS

Sigh... port 8085 wasn't defined in /etc/services. Solved.
Could have "sworn" I had already added it. Sleep needed
