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

    I've got:
    Box A (111.111.111.111): running a perforce server listening on port 4444
    Box B (222.222.222.222): 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 1666:111.111.111.111:4444 [email protected] -N -f

    then on B, I run p4 commands:
    p4

    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=111.111.111.111:4444 but that doesn't go through a secure ssh tunnel...

    What am I missing?

    Try something like this:

    ssh -i somekey -L 4444:111.111.111.111:4444 [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

    P4PORT=222.222.222.222:4444
