Remote access to protected networks using ssh tunnels established from inside to outside.

On the inside box:

 ssh -p 22 -f -N -T -R65522:localhost:22

-f —> go to background
-N —> no remote commands at the moment
-T —> no interactive shell yet
-R65522:localhost:22 —> everything connecting port 65522 on the outside box will be connected to port 22 on the inside box.
-p 22 —> the port the tunnel accepting sshd is listening on the ousidebox during the tunnel build up —> the user ”user” on the outside box ”” accepting the tunnel.

On the outside (for ssh):

 ssh -p 65522 user@localhost

user —> the user on the inside box
