Yet another kind of controlling background ssh process. Actually it can be modified to controlling any process without pid saving feature.
So, here we go:
$ git clone https://github.com/theg4sh/bgctl.git
$ cp bgctl/bgctl sshtunnel.sh
$ chmod +x sshtunnel.sh
This trick based on environment inheritance of processes in linux, so we can declare any unique named variable to ssh process and later find it name in /proc/.
The next line appended to the end of sshtunnel.sh
bgctl -p /tmp/.ssh_tunnel.pid -- ssh -f -N -R 127.0.0.1:10022:10.0.0.5:22 firstname.lastname@example.org
After run ./sshtunnel.sh and successful ssh authorization in /tmp folder will be created file .ssh_tunnel.pid with correct pid of forked ssh process.
In finally, to stop ssh tunnel run:
$ ./sshtunnel.sh stop
All done, have a nice day.
