Starting SSH Reverse tunnelling at boot
Hi folks,

Im new to ssh tunneling

What i want to do is open a reverse ssh tunnel to a server from behind a firewall. i have figured out how to do this from the xterm, but what i want to do is get it to start this tunnel anytime the system reboots.

I have tried creating a script like this;

/usr/bin/ssh -T -R 8888:localhost:80 -g -e none &
/usr/bin/ssh -T -R 8888:localhost:80 -g -e none &

These run fine if i start them in a terminal window but when i added them to /etc/rc.d/rc.local it doesnt work.

# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

touch /var/lock/subsys/local

but this doesnt work.

Any ideas folks?

Cheers in advance

What are the permissions/ownerships on
the file?

the permissions on the sript? they are 766? i think. they are set as executable

I't doesnt matter now any way i have just opened port forwarding on my router and i can start it by ssh'ing into the box and starting it manually.

Cheers for your advice anyways
