Command line hangs when trying to make ssh tunnel
I was following this tuitorial and was on step 3. Now as I try to make the ssh tunnel, my command line gets stuck when I enter the password. It doesn’t terminate or show any error but just gets stuck
ssh -L 59000:localhost:5901 -C -N -l sammy your_server_ip
command from my local system(Windows).
I replaced sammy by my non-root username and yourserverip with the linux server ip address.
It asks for my password, I provide it and then the command line gets stuck.
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.
