Property Desciption

Example

To use this feature from Linux host using OpenSSH client this command can be used:

 ssh reamoteuser@remotehost -L port:remotehost:remoteport

where:

  • remoteuser - user of router
  • remotehost - router address (if host name is used in -L settings, router should be able to resolve this name)
  • port - local port that your host will listen on
  • remoteport - port on the router

If user requires telnet to router, but you do not want to allow it to be plain text, Following can be done:

ssh admin@192.168.88.1 -L 3000:192.168.88.1:23

now when user uses telnet localhost 3000" it will log in the router using telnet over encrypted tcp connection.
