FROM HOME WHILE LOGGED IN AS MYSELF 'craig', I GENERATE SOME KEY PAIR:
ssh-keygen -t dsa
THEN I BECOME ROOT AND COPY MY KEYS TO MY ROOT ACCOUNT ALSO
cp ~craig/.ssh/id* .
THEN I TRY MY PORT FORWARDING TO WORK MAIL SERVER, I CHANGED THE HOST NAME
sudo ssh -2 -L 25:localhost:25 firstname.lastname@example.org
surprisingly it no longer requires me to enter my root password for PORT FORWARDING on a PRIVILEDGED PORT.
is this a security violoation.
it always asked me for my root password prior to even trying to do port forwarding.
