(ports and IPs changed)
I am trying to use terminal and I think this is the cmd i want:
ssh -l userName -L 1234:firstname.lastname@example.org:5678 -p 1111 184.108.40.206
I might be wrong, but it does let me log on. when trying to use remote desktop i get this error:
channel 3: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed
