This is less a FreeBSD question and more of an ssh question, but I'm open to FreeBSD answers . Is it possible to use ssh to log in to my server without setting up the ssh daemon? In my mind, I thought it'd be easy... something along the lines of ssh -l 22 on fenris and then remoting to fenris from loki via ssh fenris. Maybe a different port, but other than that it didn't seem like an outrageous idea, but I can't figure it out after reading dozens of tunneling tutorials which all seem to just tunnel a port on one end to a port on the other end, which presumes there's a listener on one end or the other. Netcat sorta works along these lines nc -l 2222, then nc fenris 2222. But I can't see any comparable feature with the ssh client. Is it there?
