SSH Tunnel Manager


Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


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.

What's New in Version 2.1.4

• 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

Missing ssh agent support

I have a passphrase on my ssh private key. The ssh agent lets me avoid entering it every time, but the SSH Tunnel app doesn't seem to have access to that, so I need to enter the passphrase every time the connection needs to be recreated.

Simple and works well

Not working in El Capitan anymore

Used to work fine but since my update to El Capitan it doesn’t work anymore for certain tunnels with port forward.
The syntax it sends to terminal is like that :

ssh -N -p 22 -c 3des client@serveraddress -L 5801/localhost/5801 -L 5901/localhost/5901

when under El Capitan it should be like that instead:

ssh -N -p 22 -c 3des client@serveradress -L 5801:localhost:5801 -L 5901:localhost:5901

It should either be fixed or allow to edit manually in the app the command line and replace the / with :

The point of the app is to help you create tunnels and if you have multiple ones to save the configs. If I wanted to type in the terminal window I would not need this app.

Please fix!
