connecting to fowarded port issues

    I have set up port forwarding with MacSSH to try
    to see if it is a good alternative to Fsecure.

    All in all, it's a GREAT alternative to Fsecure, I really
    like it.

    However, I can only connect a client application to
    the fowarded port if I have check "allow guests".

    When this is checked, pretty much anyone with
    an IP connection can also connect a client application
    to my mac. This is NOT GOOD.

    In fact, it sorta makes it unusable, as it defeats the
    purpose of tunneling a port through ssh in the
    first place.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Please help.

      don't use 'localhost', but the loopback address
