Which one to get? CoreShell or CoreTunnel?

Beginner here. I am now using command line ssh on a Mac to connect to various bastion hosts and from there to servers. Authentication method is a combination of passwords and a Yubikey. I also have to fight timeouts. Which app is better for my needs?

It depends on your situations. If you need establish port forwarding between your Mac and remote host, you should go ahead with Core Tunnel. If you run command line tools to manage remote host, then choose Core Shell.

Essential features of both apps are free, try apps and then you can make the choice.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions on apps.

Kindly Regards,


Both apps are amazing. I'll probably get both.
