SSH Tunnel Manager lets you easily create network "tunnels" in situations where you cannot connect to some device but have a way to connect to as server nearby using SSH.
It uses the ssh command bundled with the system.


Release Notes:

• Fixed a bug causing application to crash when editing redirections
• Fixed a bug preventing copy and paste to work in password field
• You can now specify bind address in the local port column using address:port
• Small interface adjustements

A great app and solves a longterm annoyance - I've always hated having a bunch of windows open to manage my SSH tunnels - this solves that and does it exactly the way I would want it to. Thanks for putting this in the store for free!

Version 2.1.4
Review by ComplicatedLife

Works great but has one confusing UI issue - Once it's running it works flawlessly. But it took me many tries to realize that to add a tunnel you have to first type in the info and *then* press the "+" button afterwards to save it. That's counter to almost any current software on Mac or iOS, and does not match the documentation on the support site (which is for one version older (2.1.3) and the GUI doesn't look anything like the current app). All said and done, it works, and works great. Getting rid of the dock icon would definitely be a plus as others have noted.

Version 2.1.4
Review by BizzleIzzle

Didn't work - I use ssh to connect to my home router from anywhere and then jump out through various firewalls. This seems to only bind the ports to localhost which doesn't help me. I setup a number of 127.0.0.# IP addresses so that I can use multiple names to use various tunnels by name and port. Also, I couldn't get it to even connect with my ssh server on port 8022 while OSX's SSH does it fine. Running Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Review by OnlyDavid

Works, but is very buggy - This application works, but is quite buggy in the setup panel. For example, when I attempted to setup a gateway it kept automatically attempting to connect even though I had the automatic connect turned off. I had to delete the gateway configuration, and then set it up again. I have two separate tunnels, and switching in between the two in the setup panel confuses the setup panel. When I add a new tunnel, I have to press the “+” to make sure the new tunnel is added, and then press the “-“ to not add the blank line. Sometimes when I delete a tunnel or change a configuration, it will crash. It would also be nice to have a way of reverting changes you made. For example, if the application had a “Save/Cancel” button or at least asked me if I wanted to save the changes. Now, the changes are pretty much instantanious. Once everything is setup, it works fairly well. It’s convinient and the price is right. I know enough to do more or less the same thing with a shell script, but having an app I can setup, and see whether or not the gateway connection is active or not is convinient. I wish the command line had a few more options like allowing X11 forwarding.

Version 2.1.4
Review by MacMacMac555

Works good - It works good, it just needs to remember passwords in the keychain so you don't have to type it in every time you reconnect. Or make the functionality more obvious it's really hidden.
