[torqueusers] qstat via ssh port forwarding

I'm trying to run qstat on my localhost to query a pbs_server on a
remote cluster. I have ssh access to the 'login' server on the remote
cluster. The pbs_server is running on separate machine (torque) at the
remote site. I can run 'qstat @torque' from the remote login server.
My question is how do I setup the port forwarding correctly to get
qstat to run on my local machine. I tried the following but it doesn't
work even though tcpdump show the packets reaching the pbs_server
machine (torque). Maybe I'm using the wrong port or need to forward
some more ports?

For example:

[kevin at localhost cmds]$ ssh -L 15001:torque:15001 -N login &
[1] 9133
[kevin at localhost cmds]$ ./qstat @localhost
No Permission.
qstat: cannot connect to server localhost (errno=15007)

[root at torque ~]# tcpdump tcp port 15001
