If machine A has a client and needs to access a server on machine Bs
If machine A has an ssh server but machine B only has an ssh
Machine B can ssh (open a tunnel) to machine A.
Does a client on machine A then have access through this tunnel
to machine Bs server?
Re: Who must open the tunnel?
Depends on how you set up tunnels. Normally, one uses '-L' to set up a
local tunnel from machine B to a designated port on machine A or on
another machine inside the network reachable by machine A. However, by
using the '-R' option, you can set up a port on machine A to reach a
designated port on machine B or reachable by machine B directly.
Either can be useful.
