Ok.. so based on my limited understanding of port forwarding using SSH, I'm attempting to cvsup a server that doesn't have internet access (unless through a proxy) through a tunnel created on a server that does.
I'm not 100% this will work, so stop me if you've already tried this:
edge server with internet access:
ssh -N -L 5999:localhost:5999 cvsup8.FreeBSD.org
FreeBSD server without has his supfile CVS host pointed to the edge server.
The problem I have is when I issue the ssh -N -L 5999:localhost:5999 cvsup8.FreeBSD.org command on the edge box, it's prompting me for a password. A password to WHAT? If the localhost, using what account? root obviously doesn't work.
Maybe someone with a better understanding of ssh port forwarding can assist me.
