for SecureCRT v. 3.25.
- Install SecureCRT as VanDyke suggests
- Open SecureCRT and click File -
- Click New Session
Use the data below, adjusting to suit your needs:
- Name: Cotse Tunnel [Web
- Protocol: ssh2
The SSH server you were assigned
- Port: 22 (default for
- Username: your COTSE
- Primary: Password
- Secondary: <none> (default)
- Login Scripts: leave alone
- SSH2: leave alone
- Port Forwarding: add the following:
- Name: Web Proxy
- Port: 6000 [you can use
anything you like over 1024]
- Destination host is different from the SSH server
- uncheck this if checked
- Port: 8080
- Application: enter the path to your browser, e.g.
c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe. Note:
this will open your browser automatically for you open
establishing a connection to the tunnel. If you'd prefer
to open your browser manually, leave this field blank.
- Arguments: [leave empty]
- Click OK
- Remote: [leave alone]
- X11: [leave alone]
Leave everything else alone and then click
- Double click the Session named: Cotse Tunnel
[Web Proxy] or whatever name you gave it.
- When you're prompted, enter your password and hit
Enter. If you'd prefer to let SecureCRT
send your password for you in the future, check the
"Remember my password" option. It would be more secure if
you didn't store the password.
If you chose not to allow SecureCRT to start your browser
automatically, open your browser.
In your browser, set the proxy information to hostname
127.0.0.1 and the port you chose [6000
in the example above].
The first time you attempt to visit a site after
connecting to the SSH server via SecureCRT and opening your
browser, you will be prompted for your username and
password. If your username/password is the same as your
normal Cotse username/password, enter those here. If not,
use the username/password you were provided specifically for
the SSH tunnel.
You should now be browsing through the SSH tunnel web
