Re: openssh vs. ssh

I'm not familiar with the exact mechanism you're using, but in my 
ssh tunnels I say something like

ssh -f -x -l majewski -L 6143:imap.cs.ubc.ca:143 cascade.cs.ubc.ca imapl

where 'imapl' is a program that loops more or less forever.

Not sure if this is necessary, or if it's necessary only because the 
host I'm running the pipe on is not the same as the host at the other end of
the pipe, or if  it's not necessary at all, but in  any case I haven't
gotten anything else to work..
