SSH Tunnel Manager is a front-end for the ssh command when used to open tunnels between two hosts. Those command lines are particulary long and confusing, especially for novices, and I never remember which argument comes first, if I have to open local or remote tunnels and so on... That's why I wrote this tool.
With SSH Tunnel Manager you can set up as many tunnels as you wish, each one containing as many port redirections as you wish.
SSH Tunnels are a secure way to access hosts, or machines you cannot normaly reach, i.e : hosts on a LAN or behind a firewall. By the way, this is not a cracker tool! You must be able to access an ssh enabled host that can communicate with this private network (usually a firewall). SSH can play with two kind of tunnels, called Local port forwarding and Remote port forwarding.
I tried to include all the important features people asked me to do since 1.0 version, so you can tune almost every usefull option available in the command line tool.
Include a workaround to use ssh tunnels SOCKS proxy feature (embedded ssh binary used only when tunnel needs SOCK feature, because of a bug in Panther's ssh).
Fixed a wrong behavior sometimes while adding port redirections.
Added a field in advanced options that show command line that will be used to launch the tunnel.
Fixed a confusing build number in about box different from the one in preferences.
Makes link to the website effective in preferences window.
Removed all references to SSH Tunnel Manager "2". There was no resons for that since all users of v1 should upgrade :-) (Christophe is happy now).
