View Full Version : Knoppix 3.9; ssh tunneling; local forwarding

09-28-2005, 12:45 AM
Hello All,

I'm running 3.9 and I'm trying to utilze ssh tunneling and I keep getting the following error:

bind: Cannot assign requested address
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 10080
Could not request local forwarding.

In fact, I can't even ping localhost...here's what I gut when I enter "ping localhost"

PING mymachine ( 56 data bytes

--- dasun ping statistics ---
104 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss


Is there a security setting (e.g., one of the /etc files) that I need to change before I can get this to work?

Btw, this worked fine when I was running Knoppix 3.8

Hey guys,

The problem I was having was related to bug #15 on the following:

If I do: "ifconfig lo" all is good.
