    I have a server on and a webserver on .19

    I run # ssh -f -N -L 8080: user@localhost

    which sets it up so that
    # lynx localhost:8080
    brings me the page from the webserver at .19

    BUT, the 8080 port is only open to the local host, and I want it open for all.

    # lynx
    doesn't work.

    nmap localhost shows the port is open, but nmap shows it's

    I've set
    in sshd_config but that didn't seem to do anything.

    I've trawled the 'net but found very little help.
