ssh tunneling to BIGIP management GUI

Hello,

 

I would like to set up a SSH tunneling to bigip management web port (443). I applied to following ssh command on my laptop:

# ssh -L 8443:127.0.0.1:443 <login>@<bigip address ip>

This command has been executed without error.

Then, when I try to connect to the bigip management GUI using the URL https://127.0.0.1:8443/, I got the following error:

channel 3: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed

 

Do you have any idea ? It seems like bigip does not allow port forwarding.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

BR

You are correct - the ssh server config on the BigIP does not allow port-forwarding.
