SSH Reverse Tunnel Not Working Mystery

When using autossh to create a reverse tunnel, sometimes, mysteriously (for the moment), on the remote server, the connect is refused, returning this message in syslog/messages

autossh[7451]:{port}: Connection refused

The problem is autossh process is running (pid 7451) but frozen ( thats the mystery )

The solution:

sudo kill $(ps aux | grep ‘autossh’ | awk ‘{print $2}’)
