Works just fine ... as does postgres --
ssh -N -2 -f -C -c blowfish -L3306:yourdatabase.server.here:3306
or the other usual tricks work too ... like going through a firewall (fyi ... clear
text on the *other* side of the firewall):
ssh -N -2 -f -C -c blowfish -L3306:db_behind_thefirewall:3306 [EMAIL PROTECTED]
The only oddity is that you will have to use the local host *address* 127.0.0.1 to
connect from the mysql client as it normally looks for a local socket if you use
'localhost', so your connection will be:
mysql -h 127.0.0.1
for postgres examples, change the port numbers (3306) to 5432
