Greetings all

 

I'm trying to make the MFC client (version 7.1.55.0-PR) connect using ssh.

 

I currently use it just fine with telnet on a "local" (via VPN) server, however I also need to connect to a different remote (across the 'net) Linux server which does not have telnet access.  Using telnet, it throws open a dos telnet window; I login, run the applicable bash script at the *nix command line, choose the appropriate terminal type, and everything is then thrown back to the MFC client.

 

Whilst VPN'd have used both the puTTY windows client and puTTY's plink dos command-line client to successfully connect via ssh to the remote server.  By the way, ProIV is not installed on this remote server.  I have to then ssh/telnet to a second server.  

 

The Northgate-provided p4sshlink.exe does not do anything if I attempt to use it dos command-line as if I were executing plink.exe.  (I assume that it has been specifically compiled to work with ProIV.)

 

I've also attempted to setup puTTY's ssh-tunneling (which I am not familiar with), as an alternate plan and was not successful.

 

I'd like it to work in the same manner that I'm used to using with the telnet option mentioned above.  Whether via direct ssh or tunnel, I don't care which.

 

Many thanks in advance

Rick

ProIV doesn't support direct ssh (planned for v9)

 

Got tunneling working.
