Suddenly my call to ssh -f -vvv rdp@corn06.stanford.edu -L 2025:corn06.stanford.edu:55576 -N stopped working. It prints the output at the bottom of this post, and then the process terminates. Yet it seems to properly set up the listener, because when I rerun the command, it says:

bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 2025
Could not request local forwarding.

Do I need to sort out an issue with RSA keys?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

    
Sounds like it's doing what you ask. You are combining -f (fork) with -N (execute no command), so ssh forks a background process and leaves your terminal free to do other work. –  Joni Dec 1 '12 at 17:04

It turns out port 2025 was in use by another session. I just needed to use a different port number.
