[PLUG] SSH Tunnel

I need to create a ssh tunnel through an intermediate server (
to a vm on that server (

So.... I put this in my .ssh/config file:

Host oldsys
  user eric
  ServerAliveInterval 300
  LocalForward 20000

I've set up the authorized_keys so the login at each stage should be automatic.

 = From the current machine I can ssh to
 = From I can ssh to

But: the tunnel appears to not work.
When I 'ssh oldsys' from my original server I end up logged in to the server.
It's like I never told it to do a forward :-(

What am I missing here?
