I was trying out port forwarding over ssh, and wanted to know if it were possible for it to bind to another interface other than localhost, I wanted to set up a secure way to access ports from my network "a" to another network "b". So I tried something simple like "ssh -l dlab -R" and when you type "lynx localhost:8080" on the remote machine, it works, YAY. Except for one thing, it seems to bind to "localhost" instead of "*" like all other ports do. I figure that this is prolly for security reasons, but I really need it to bind to all interfaces rather than it trying to stick to localhost. Please tell me if this is possible, if not, then I guess I can find an alternative.

Note: I will readily play with source files if I have to.
