I need to ssh into my work computer, and then I need to connect to an external website (hosted entirely at another company) that my work has contracted with using my work machine.
This answer says I can tunnel through a single port using:
ssh -L 8080:server-hostname:80 remote-host
Which is ideal because then I don't have to pipe my entire traffic to my work machine. So if the website I need to access with my work machine is at:
ssh -L 8080:http://www.abcde.com/1020-39x/proprietary-documentation-blah:80 me@work
But command returns an error saying
Bad local forwarding specification
How can I do this?
