11.15.1. Introduction to Port Forwarding

Port forwarding permits connections to remote services from a local workstation, without having to configure complicated firewall rules or SSH tunnels. The command used to forward ports to a local machine includes a wrapper that configures SSH port forwarding. After the ports are forwarded, the list of remote services and associated IP addresses that are being forwarded becomes available.
