I know cyberduck is a good ftp/sftp client, but what about a pretty ssh client that is at least separate from the terminal. I want to be able to leave it running with a reverse ssh tunnel so that I can access my dorm room computer from anywhere.



Fugu? It's a bit old but you can manage SSH tunnels in it. Maybe also SSH Tunnel Manager which is also old; I would recommend getting the 2.0b3 version.

  • Thanks. I'm going to leave this open a bit longer just in case there are any more recommendations. – Ritwik Bose Jan 8 '10 at 0:48

Call me old fashioned:
But what is so bad about using the ssh client from the command line?

ssh user@host -L 8080:server:80

You could then put that in a script:

 ssh user@host -L 8080:server:80

If you are THAT attached to the GUI - I think putty is your answer: http://www.macports.org/ports.php?by=name&substr=putty

  • haha I have no problem with using bash. I use it for most things. However, I want something that my room mate could use and fix if things go wrong while I'm not around. – Ritwik Bose Jan 8 '10 at 1:19

    Linking to darwinports.com is misleading since that site has nothing to do with the MacPorts package management system and will ask you for your name and email address to be informed when "Darwinports will be available". Either link to MacPorts at macports.org/ports.php?by=name&substr=putty or the PuTTY home page at chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty – fideli Jan 8 '10 at 2:00
  • @fideli - Totally my bad and will edit. I do not own a Mac so I could only hope that was the official location for it. – Natalie Adams Jan 10 '10 at 5:02

meerkat is the prettiest of the ssh tunnel managers

  • Wow, looks pretty slick! – fideli Jan 10 '10 at 5:55
