hmm, are you thinking that I'm not using ssh?  Because I'm using ssh
currently, and it works fine.

no, i am thinking you have no clue what a SSH tunnel nor a TCP connection are, otherwise this thread won't exist

How is ssh -L 3305:localhost:3306 thufir@  any better or more
useful than ssh thufir@ ?

boah the one is a ordinary SSH shell and the other is having the remote mysqld server listening on localhost

The process described here:


doesn't seem demonstratively better, or even different, than just using
ssh to login, and then logging into MySQL.  However, I've seen that
approach mentioned quite a bit.

What's the advantage?

that you can have a local application using mysql by -h which is a complete different thing than a interactive shell?
