Hi Dries,

A colleague pointed out that maybe switching to this new way to configure port forwarding would be beneficial for you:

Changes in SecureCRT 7.1 (Beta 1) -- February 26, 2013

New features:

  • Added support for dependent sessions so that a connection can be made to a jump host or SSH gateway before the session is connected.

If the connections you are configuring are a jump host scenario*, you would essentially make a session to that jump host machine and then make sessions for each machine beyond the jump host you are trying to reach. In each of those "final host" sessions, you would configure the jump host session to be the firewall in the Connection / SSH2 category of Session Options.

*Note that the jump host must allow/support port forwarding for this dependent session mechanism to work.
