Love it - Great App I use it daily. Just one request. Can you place the actual linux commands someone in the summary screen. After using this so much I tend to forget how to do it in the terminal. So when I’m trying to connect via a different computers I’m lost.

It's ok but there are free alternatives - It works decently well. However there are free alternatives like secure pipes that work just as well. It was ok when it was a couple of bucks but now that price has increased to $10 for just simple command replacement it is too much. It would have been ok if it had all the other utilities that this developer provides. But it's crippled by design to force you to buy ssh proxy, etc for minor features that should all have been in the same tool.

The one thing you need a tunnelling app to do, SSH Tunnel does it exactly how you want it to. - Double click and you have a tunnel. It happens so quickly that you doubt it. Then you open up ARD or Sequel Pro and it's there! It stays connected, has never crashed, and does nothing to complicate itself.

Reliable and invaluable - I use this app every single day and it works great. I connect to several SSH servers for both forward and reverse proxies. Does exactly what I need and the services are always available when I need them. Great product at a fair price. Thanks!

Great tool, but doesn't support standard kex algo unfortunatelly - Please be aware it doesn't support diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha* kex algorithm. So before buying it please consult with your sysadmin first.

Review by Clearlight Insight

Superb. Simple. GREAT way to organize tunnels and proxying. - This simplifies SSH proxying which is cryptic and nightmarish enough as it is with all the imminently forgettable flags and modes. Having it all superbly organized and presented in a well-designed full-featured graphical user interface is such a great idea, I wish I’d thought of it. It visually assists you even in chosing the right SSH tunneling mode to accomplish the type of connection you’re trying to make and saves you a lot of time digging through configuration files and google. Worth every penny. Long after you'd forget where you put what file to setup ssh tunnels on your system you’ll find this one single application right in front of you on your task bar (or that’s where I have it anyway), making it all clear as day and simple as pie to configure and manage. Great job guys!
