Lets have:
A = the client PC you are ssh from.
B = gateway
C = webserver.

The above will open a port 8080 on A, listening on
When you connect to port 8080 on A, the session is tunnelled through
the ssh port 22 session.
B then opens a tcp session from B:anyport -> C:80

Does this help answer your question?

Kind Regards
