Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager 1.2
Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager is a frontend for SSH tunneling.
Tunnel configurations are stored in a simple XML format with support for both local and remote port redirection.
Tunnels can be individually started and stopped from the simple main dialog with the option to add or delete a tunnel or modify its preferences.
An SSH tunnel with port redirection is usefull to access services behind a *nix firewall/router. For example, if you have a Terminal Server (remote desktop) and a MySQL server on your private LAN and want to access them securely from outside, you just open an ssh connection with two port redirections. You can then connect to your localhost which will be redirected over the encrypted tunnel, through the firewall/router, to the remote host.
What's New in This Release:
· gSTM now starts 'minimized to tray' when the notification area is available and there's one or more 'autostart' tunnels.
· A systray menu has been added to easily access the tunnels when the program is 'minimized to tray' and a 'Copy' button is added to the main dialog for copying existing tunneldefinitions to a new one.
· And also a number of bugs are fixed.
