Mmmh, it does work after all. You have to be careful to restart
everything, I guess.

I've moved the --source to the SSH line. That works too but it seems
like I can only have 1 connection open at the same time. Sort of. I
have a reverse connection from a local server with a non-routable IP
to this public server. That works. But then I can't access the public
server anymore. If I kill the reverse connection and wait a few
minutes, I can login again. Switch the reverse connection back on ...
and I can't login anymore. Strange.
