This menu controls if ssh port forwarding is/is not allowed on the router. Enabling this feature remote hosts are able to create ssl encrypted connection from remote host to router port.
|forwarding-enabled (no|yes default:no)||controls ssh port forwarding|
To use this feature from Linux host using OpenSSH client this command can be used:
ssh reamoteuser@remotehost -L port:remotehost:remoteport
- 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 email@example.com -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.
