To port foward on a port over ssh, use something like the following from the
ssh -L XXXX:dbserver.mydomain.com:XXXX dbserver.mydomain.com
where XXXX is the mysql port number.
then on the IDS connect to the database at XXXX on localhost.
The disadavantage of doing it this way is that it requires you to login via
ssh to the database server from
the IDS. A more practical approach is to use stunnel (http://www.stunnel.org/
) to provide the equiavlent
without the ssh login session. The stunnel docs provide all the details.
