Accessing application in browser over SSH proxy on localhost.

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I have SSH access to a web server that is hosting an application on port 8080. I have a SSH session setup and a proxy configured on Chrome to redirect requests to SSH tunnel. I basically configured it using these instructions: http://drewsymo.com/2013/11/ssh-tunnel-in-30-seconds-mac-osx-linux/ I can confirm using Whats My IP that my IP is that of the SSH session and that is working correctly. But I cannot figure out how to access the local application on the web server that I am SSHed into. When I try localhost:8080 the SSH session gives me an error "channel X: open failed: connect faile (HowTos)
