I have a problem. I'm trying to port forward and get a similar error msg, I type this in:ssh -N -L 9050: root@ and then I get this msg:ssh: connect to host port 22: No route to host. I've been googling around a couple of days and I can't seem to find anything that directly relates to this, I'm also a noob so there could be something sitting right in front of my face lol. Either way I came across this post and thought I'd drop a line, I hope someone out there can help, thanks in advance!

Can you ssh to at all without port forwarding? This seems to be your issue that needs solving first. – Marcin Kaminski Nov 24 '12 at 0:34
Is this inside a VM? – Mechanical snail Dec 19 '12 at 0:52
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! – Takkat Jan 15 '13 at 17:47
