Pardon me, I've been unclear.
I don't mean TCP forwards but UNIX domain socket forwarding. I use
LocalForward extensively in my ssh configs for tunnels, but although
these command line options:
work just fine for UNIX domain sockets, all my efforts with UNIX socket
file paths have met with failure in the ssh config file, and the
ssh_config(5) manual entry doesn't mention them.
UNIX domain sockets have the advantage that one can apply UNIX
permissions to them, a boon on a shared machine.
