I'm playing with MongoDB. I have a good deal of experience with MySQL and was using something called Sequel Pro to connect to remote databases. I'm now trying MongoHub but can't seem to get it to connect to the remote database.
I tried a basic SSH tunnel
ssh -f firstname.lastname@example.org -L 9009:remotehost.com:27017 -N
But this didn't work. How do other DB management tools use a ssh login to provide a connection to the database that doesn't have an open port? Is this something I could setup by myself (via a tunnel or something else)?
