Who said SSH = SSH? Not all the syntaxes are the same on different operating systems, although the protocol is the same. A good example is the creation of port forwarding. 

On Linux:

$ ssh user@jumphost –L 3377:remoteserver:5900

On Mac OS X:

$ ssh user@gwserver -L 3377/remoteserver/5900

Note the colons and dashes...
