Question ProxyCommand / Local Proxy

On my work PC i would like to switch from putty to SecureCRT because is SO much better, however, i have a sing (mandatory) feature which is still missing.

On putty i use "Local" proxy setting in order to launch proxytunnel software (http://proxytunnel.sourceforge.net/), basically putty redirects STDIN/STDOUT through that command initializing ssh connection over it.

Proxytunnel itself permits to connect to a NTLM https proxy AND encapsulate an SSH connection using a remote apache server using CONNECT over HTTPS (so a 2 proxy jump). This is quite complicated but sometimes its the only way to bypass strong, layer 7 firewalls which understands payload and allows only HTTP(S) traffic going out.

From a "coding" point of view it doesn't seems too difficult (its just a popen), also OpenSSH client has this feature via "ProxyCommand" directive. Why SecureCRT does not implement this??

Thanks a lot.
Bye.

Hello johnuopini,

Feature requests are prioritized based on a number of factors, including, but not limited to the number of requests, and the amount of implementation work required.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our development database for support for ProxyTunnel as proxy. Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct e-mail notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #5987" in the subject line.

Thumbs up

I'd also like to request this feature. I use the ProxyCommand with proxytunnel extensively with openssh, it would be really nice to be able to use it with SecureCRT also.

Any updates on the feature?

I'd also like to have something similar to ProxyCommand.

Adding my tuppence to ProxyCommand support as I use Scale FT's client for accessing servers behind a bastion (see https://www.scaleft.com/docs/client/) and while I can use MacOS's native SSH via ProxyCommand through my .ssh/config:

Match exec "/usr/local/bin/sft resolve -q %h"
ProxyCommand "/usr/local/bin/sft" proxycommand %h --via xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
UserKnownHostsFile "/Users/movielad/Library/Application Support/ScaleFT/proxycommand_known_hosts"


I can't use any connections through SecureCRT. The ScaleFT client handles any and all authentication as well, so being able to say to SecureCRT - trust this third party handler through ProxyCommand would be exceptionally helpful.

Thanks,

Martyn

Proxy Command has been implemented in SecureCRT 8.7 for Windows, which can be downloaded here:

https://www.vandyke.com/cgi-bin/rele...duct=securecrt

It can be configured in the Global Options dialog in the Firewall category.
