    I've read every document I can find, but I can't get this to work.

    I've got:
    Box A ( running a perforce server listening on port 4444
    Box B ( a perforce client using port 1666

    I ssh into B and I want run p4 commands through an ssh tunnel to box A.

    On B, I enter:
    ssh -i somekey -L 1666: [email protected] -N -f

    then on B, I run p4 commands:

    I get this error after a long while:
    channel 2: open failed: connect failed: Connection timed out

    I can get box B to run p4 commands on A if I just set the P4PORT= but that doesn't go through a secure ssh tunnel...

    What am I missing?

    Try something like this:

    ssh -i somekey -L 4444: [email protected] -N -f

    This tunnels B's port 4444 to remote port 444, so now B's could connect using its local port 4444
