Default ssh channel error [Linux]

Ok i am trying to view a web page on a remote host from a client pc. I can successfully ssh to the remote httpd server...and then when i use my browser and point it to "http://localhost:20808/" , in the terminal i get the following error;

"channel 2: open failed: administratively prohibited: open failed"

How do i fix this error? the browser simply displays a blank page at this point. How do i fix this channel 2 error?

Thanks.

(Running Fedora 10 distro btw.)

Hi,

Can you tell me what is supposed to be at that webpage? Is it a diag tool or just a webpage? I will have to do a little looking as to what that error means. Could you try going to that site in root, and see if that helps.

Cheers!

its just a basic HTML index.html page that i want to be able to view. I haven't tried with root...but either way, i need to be able to view it using the account for the assignment.

Have you changed the proxy settings in FireFox? It should be Socks4 and not Socks5 AFAIK
