F5 AppWorld 2024 session proposal deadline extended to Friday, December 8th!
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.
> channel 3: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed
You are correct - the ssh server config on the BigIP does not allow port-forwarding.
