MySql client tunnel through intermediate host

Situation:

Hosts A,B,C

Host A is where my MySql client resides. Host C is the MySql server. Host B is a host to which i have ssh access, which has the benefit of a fixed IP, which is not the case with host A. I'd like only one host to be permitted remote MySql access to C, namely A. I was rather hoping this could be made possible by tunneling through B. Is it? I want to be able to query C from A.

Host B does not have a MySql client and i really need it to stay that way.

You should be able to use ssh on Host B to map the remote port of host C to the local port on Host B.

ssh -T -N -L 3306:localhost:3306 Host_C

You could also remap the port on Host B to another port.
ssh -T -N -L 3307:localhost:3306 Host_C


You might even want to run another tunnel from your system, Host A, to Host B to keep the traffic encrypted.

ssh -T -N -L 3308:localhost:3307 Host_B

Then you just connect you MySQL cilent to port 3308 on your local system.   I used different ports to show you how to set it up.

Thanks - that's interesting. Normally B's firewall is very tight. Is it the case that since we're tunneling through ssh, B:3306 is not going to have a firewall problem for me connecting from A?

What ports are open on B?  You can remap that port to anything.
