I have a remote administration tool and I'm trying connect client PC to remote PC through an ssh tunnel (local port forwarding) with an Amazon Instance EC2. I receive this error message from Plink, after several attempts to connect (because the connection not is established initially):
Forwarded connection refused by server: Connect failed [Connection timed out]
Here is how i'm logging in (to tunnel) via Plink.exe:
plink.exe -v -ssh -2 -P 22 -C -l root -pw mypass -N -L 4021:myhostname.forgot.his.name:4004 root@amazonserver
- I'm able to connect in normal ssh.
- On Amazon Instance, Inbound range already is defined to maximum allowed 0-65535.
- ddclient is running and working correctly (ping shows the IP of the instance).
- The remote PC also has all ports opened on firewall/modem via DMZ (the connection works without an ssh tunnel).
Does anyone have any idea how solve this "enigma"?
