Of course, but you are splitting hairs here.  In such a case, the remote 
client is really connected to a local ssh shell, and the local ssh shell 
is the process connecting to the loopback address. CQFD.
One could also connect via ssh directly, then issue a
telnet localhost 8005
I never tried this by the way. I wonder if Tomcat responds something.
Have to find an instance of Tomcat which I can shut down.
