The proxy is listening on port 5865 on the “remotehost”. You will have ssh use port 5001 on the localhost. Which of the following ssh command is used in order to get this objective?

    • ssh -L 5001:localhost 5865:remotehost

    • ssh -R 5001: remotehost:5865 remotehost

    • ssh -L 5865: localhost:5001 remotehost

    • ssh -L 5001: remotehost:5865 remotehost

    • None of the mentioned

    • Network data transfer will be unnecessarily slow

    • Network link can become saturated

    • Processing of incoming data will be slow
