dynamic port forwarding

Hello all

Here is my setup:

Server-side: Tru64 Unix 5.1, SSH version 3.2.0
Client-side: NT4 Sp6 SSH Secure Shell 3.2.9 Windows Client

My configuration works fine but I have quite an awkward need. I need to port forward an FTP connection (I cannot use sftp). The SSH/FTP server is on the same machine.

I have got dynamic forwarding working fine using the GUI supplied with SSH for Workstations, but I need to have this functionality at the DOS prompt.

I have tried 'ssh2 -L socks/21 user@remotehost'

then connect to localhost with separate DOS window but it just hangs saying connected to 127.0.0.1.

any ideas?

thanks
