General Port Forwarding Scenario

Connectivity Secure Shell

General Port Forwarding Scenario

In this scenario, local applications that communicate with a remote server need not be Secure Shell enabled. Instead, you can configure them to send their data to a local port. The Secure Shell session you configure and initiate with Connectivity Secure Shell listens on the port used by the applications and forwards the data to the remote Secure Shell server through the tunnel.

As in the previous scenario, each application data stream is sent between the Connectivity Secure Shell engine and the Secure Shell server through a separate channel. Data that is received by the Secure Shell server, is forwarded to the remote server applications.
