SSH Proxy

By Yang Yubo

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


SSH Proxy can help you turn any remote SSH server into a SOCKS v5 proxy, intuitive and easy to use.

SSH Proxy is able to remember the SSH login password & private key passphrase and save it to OS X's keychain. Furthermore, SSH Proxy is designed to automatically reconnect when your Mac is waking up from sleep.

Notable Features:

- Auto launch when log in OS X

- Create SOCKS v5 proxy through SSH tunnel
- Fast switch between multiple SSH accounts
- Automatically reconnect after disconnected by errors or waking up from sleep

Customer Reviews

Only seems to work for web browsers? No CLI?

I tried setting up an SSH tunnel proxy for some systems on my home network. I was able to access internal web servers, but I was unable to SSH from the command line into any of the internal systems. Whatever the proxying seems to be limited in scope. Otherwise, if everything worked as expected this would totally be a 5-star app. The $2 price is very appealing, and I *love* the simplicity of the app!
