For some reason I need to access the Internet through a SSH tunnel connection. The way I do it now is to open Putty and load a tunnel profile.

Since I will need tunneling all the time, is there a program that satisfies the following?

  • establish a SSH tunnel
  • run in the background; I don't need to interact with the terminal
  • lightweight, like Putty
  • auto login

Take a look at plink, made by the putty developers.

I use bitvise tunnelier along with Proxifier, they work great.

Have a look at MyEnTunnel, it uses plink and can run as a Windows service.
