Cant use a 3rd party mysql backend over ssh

Ok… can somebody tell me if this is actually working or not…
I cant connect over a tunnel :frowning:
Here are the instructions i followed

This is the command i am running

#ssh -fNg -L 3307:

And this is the error i get

bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 3307
Could not request local forwarding.

I haven’t tried tunneling, but looking at your ssh command, the last part should be (dbhost is listed in your MySQL stats

The idea of running SSH to listen on a specified port makes me think that only one user on the server at a time can do this.
