Local Port Forwarding and Dynamic Port Forwarding are both techniques used in SSH tunneling, but they have different use cases.
Here's a little table summarizing the key differences :
|Local Port Forwarding
|Dynamic Port Forwarding
|Forward traffic from a local port to a remote host/service
|Create a SOCKS proxy for accessing multiple remote services
|Provides secure access to a specific remote service
|Can potentially provide access to multiple remote services
|Accessing a web server on a remote host
|Accessing multiple remote services through a proxy
In summary, SSH Local Port Forwarding is used to forward traffic from a specific local port to a specific remote host/service, while Dynamic Port Forwarding is used to create a SOCKS proxy that can be used to access multiple remote services.
Both are simple to use, and can be configured in WebSSH by following the instructions below :
