no connection to pvserver using ssh port forwarding between ubuntu 22.04 machines

Hi, I get no connection to my remote pvserver using ssh port forwarding. Both machines run Ubuntu 22.04 and the used paraview and pvserver binaries come from the standard Ubuntu 22.04 repositories and were installed with “apt”. I started the remote pvserver with the following commands:

ssh -f <hostname> pvserver
ssh -N -L 11111:localhost:11111 <hostname>

With the paraview program I cannot get a connection to the pvserver and get a error message. I this problem known? Is there a workaround or a solution to this problem?

Thank you very much!

Hi @RalphT69

ssh -L 8080:localhost:11111 <hostname> pvserver works perfectly for me.
