In our email, you mentioned that Core Tunnel could act like SSH Proxy, just without the traffic routing. I must admit that I can’t see how to do that.
Before getting your advice, let me sing the praises of SSH Proxy for my situation. I don’t actually use the traffic routing as to use it in my situation would require dns resolution and then either regex or subnet matching. Where it is great is I can connect to multiple bastion hosts and use different port numbers. In my situation, establishing a connection require a OTP token, ssh key and password. SSH Proxy stores the password and key securely in keychain and SSH Proxy has the right understanding to prompt me for the token. Thus, I authenticate once, and now have a socks proxy on my local system. In my .ssh/config I then have hosts setup to
ProxyCommand /usr/bin/nc -X 5 -x 127.0.0.1:3030 %h %p At least in this situation, I can set a default, and if that doesn’t work, I can just add
-p 3031 for a different bastion. Thank you very much for that software.
Back to the question, is there a way to use core tunnel in a similar way to SSH Proxy?
