Secure Shell
Port forwarding and access restriction Jan 29 2010 11:06AM

Hi,

When creating a local port forwarding with SSH (using the -L command flag), is
it possible to limit the number of clients that will be able to connect to the
local port?

Let's say I do:

ssh -L 0.0.0.0:36725:localhost:7777 user@hostname

Can I limit the number of accepted clients on port 36725?

Thanks.
Michael.
