Net-ssh problem with port forwarding

Hello!

I’m trying to forward few ports via ssh - this is only reason I use
net::ssh.

I’ve tried following code on windows - both newest ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.2
from rubyinstaller.

log = Logger.new(STDOUT)
ssh = Net::SSH.start($sshconfig[“sshhost”], $sshconfig[“sshaccount”],
{:port => $sshconfig[“sshport”], :config => false, :key_data =>
[$sshconfig[“sshkey”]], :keys_only => true, :logger => log})
ssh.forward.local(222, “10.213.0.6”, 223)
ssh.forward.remote(222, “localhost”, 10000)
ssh.loop { true }

It works, but each time I try to connect to localhost:222 from windows,
OR localhost:222 on remote server, I get following error:

E, [2011-10-05T15:08:45.343750 #29848] ERROR –

from test.rb:44:in `’

I understand, what’s that mean - there is nothing listening on the other
side of forwarded connection - BUT why it crashes with so bizzare
exception?

I expect in my code this to by not so uncommon situation - I forward
remote port to local service, which is ie.: restarting in this
particualr moment. Then - bam! Whole app is crashing.

Is that a bug? Or maybe I just don’t know how to tell net-ssh to ignore
such errors, log it and continue loop? Any ideas?

ssh.forward.local(222, “10.213.0.6”, 223)
ssh.forward.remote(222, “localhost”, 10000)

I assume you have something listening on localhost:10000 ?
-r

Yes - but not always. So - I want to redirect port from remote host to
local service. I cannot assure that local service will be online 100% of
time. And when it’s not - net::ssh crashes.
