SSH Tunnel - Support connections without shell

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Can you please add support for connection without a shell/terminal in RDM SSH Tunnel entries?

We've found that having a Linux user with no shell useful for tunneling as it allows tunneling to a target without having local access to the SSH server itself.

This is accomplished by creating a Linux user with a /sbin/nologin shell and passing the "-N" option to SSH when connecting or setting the "Don't start a shell or command at all" option in PuTTY.

In its current state the RDM SSH Tunnel entry doesn't have support for this connection scenario, instead it just connects and exits.

Hi,
I'm pretty sure we can add this. We use Putty internally.

Hello,

A new option will be added called "no shell" which will do that. It will be located in the advanced tab for both the SSH Tunnel and the Portforward entry types. This will be available in the next version of RDM.
