I need access to an LDAP server hosted on a private network from the outside. I have been given a VPN account but that account has no direct access to the LDAP server. (for security reasons, they refuse to open the LDAP server on VPN).
But I have access to several other *nix boxes, all with root acces and those boxes can acces the LDAP server. My question is, can I use those boxes with something like ssh port forwarding to make the LDAP available?
