Laptop SubEthaEdit access via SSH RemoteForward
Authored by: thrig on Oct 20, '05 08:44:47AM

A TCP port can only be bound to once, so each user must use a different port. To see if a port is in use, use netstat or lsof on the server system:

$ lsof -i -nP | grep 9999
sshd    8396 jmates   13u  IPv6 0x01f63658      0t0  TCP [::1]:9999 (LISTEN)
sshd    8396 jmates   14u  IPv4 0x03504694      0t0  TCP 127.0.0.1:9999 (LISTEN)

A program such as ringd will allow multiple programs to bind to the same port. However, this likely will not allow multiple users to share the same port at the same time.
