comment character in between \left and \right in the same size in LaTeX
thanks, I did not know that at all! Perhaps it is to new for my 'not so short introduction to LaTeX' :).

comment port forwarding on linux without root or ssh
I think I should have made clearer that I did not have a particular problem. It was more that although this worked, I thought there must be other solutions that could be better. (As for the root part, I would be able to use port forwarding with iptables, but that would require root.)

comment port forwarding on linux without root or ssh
forwarding to a low port (that is already listening) does not require superuser privileges, only for the accepting port (which was 10080 in my example).

comment port forwarding on linux without root or ssh
btw, three reasons when ssh is not optimal: 1) it is not available (like on my phone, but I doubt I can install socat there), 2) no sshd, or in my case a limited amount of allowed logins, 3) no account on the remote machine (so an encrypted/compressed tunnel is not possible anyway)

There was not a specific reason to not use ssh at this time, but I wanted to broaden my collection of tools, and socat seems very powerful. (akira was first to propose it, so I checked his answer.)

Thanks! never heard of socat, this program can do much more than I ever hoped. I'm sure I'll find more uses for it than just port forwarding.
