I have a rails app that is behind a firewall and I need to be able to ssh into the box, so I do this... - create a reverse tunnel from the rails system to my system using ssh -R - ssh from my system to the rails system thru the reverse tunnel It works great ! But, if/when I restart my mongrel cluster, one of the mongrels always fails with an "port in use" error. I guess what's happening is my reverse tunnel ssh process is a child of a mongrel process, and when I kill the mongrel process, the reverse tunnel ssh process is still holding onto the port, in fact i can see that with "fuse -n tcp 8001" for port 8001. So the question is, how can I keep this from happening, I want to be able to restart my cluster and not have any lingering ports screw me up !
