comment Complicated use of VPS to access internal system, using SSH tunnels
Are you trying to forward tcp port 25565 or 25566? Or both? You say 25565 in your comment above, but 25566 in your question.

comment Complicated use of VPS to access internal system, using SSH tunnels
Are you sure you need to forward only tcp port 25566 and not instead/also udp port 25566?

Run netstat -l --inet on the vps. What's the output? Does it show tcp port 25566 being forwarded?

comment Is there a way to fix home folder permissions remotely?
Do you normally login using a password or a private key? Do you connect from another Ubuntu computer, or a Mac, or a Windows PC (in which case, do you use Cynwin ssh, or Putty, or something else to connect?)?

comment Move files on a remote machine via ssh
"The problem is that my SSH seems to attempt to execute the contents of script.sh on my local computer." Is it moving the files on the remote machine? Is it moving the files on the local computer? Why do you suspect the script is being executed on the wrong computer?
