I want to reverse tunnel connection to my SunOS (Joyent) so that any connections coming to 12043 on this server will be served by my local development server running at localhost:8843.
Edit: I don't know why but SO is not formatting my post properly (damn). Any experienced guy please help edit my post
So here what I do:
Start my local server at port 8843
$ telnet localhost 8843
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connect to server
$ ssh -vgR *:12043:0.0.0.0:8843 firstname.lastname@example.org

Then do a check
$ telnet myhost.com 12043
telnet: connect to address x.x.x.x: Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host
