Hi I'm trying to setup a simple SSH Tunnel client software with dynamic port forwarding.
I'm doing it in VB.net
But I'm unable to keep the SSH Tunnel alive, it disconnects as soon as the procedure/function runs, i want to keep it running and use it a browser on my PC as proxy, how can i achieve it ?
I don't want the SSH Tunnel to disconnect till i want to disconnect it
Well basically it was just my fault
I'm on MAC and using Parallels Desktop for Development, i was testing it using a browser on Mac rather then running a browser inside the VM
Make sure you're using the latest version of Chilkat..
The SshTunnel can operate in two different ways. The first way is to set a hard-coded destination host:port, such as what is done in the code above.
m_SSH.DestHostname = m_sTunnelRemoteAddr m_SSH.DestPort = m_iTunnelRemotePort
This is reasonable if all communications are directed to a single location, such as a database server.
However, HTTP traffic would need to be directed to many locations. For that, you use SshTunnel in the second way -- with dynamic port forwarding. You don't set DestHostname or DestPort. Instead, you do this:
// Indicate that the background SSH tunnel thread will behave as a SOCKS proxy server // with dynamic port forwarding: tunnel.DynamicPortForwarding = true;
// We may optionally require that connecting clients authenticate with our SOCKS proxy server. // To do this, set an inbound username/password. Any connecting clients would be required to // use SOCKS5 with the correct username/password. // If no inbound username/password is set, then our SOCKS proxy server will accept both // SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 unauthenticated connections.
tunnel.InboundSocksUsername = "chilkat123"; tunnel.InboundSocksPassword = "password123";
See the example here: https://www.example-code.com/vbnet/sshTunnel_dpf.asp
Hi I do understand about dynamic port forwarding, i've used exact same code as given in example but the problem is as soon as the procedure/function ends even tunnel stops, i want to keep it running, i just don't understand how to do that
Hera are some logs:
ChilkatLog: BeginAccepting: DllDate: Jun 13 2016 ChilkatVersion: 188.8.131.52 UnlockPrefix: xxxxxx Architecture: Little Endian; 32-bit Language: .NET 4.5 VerboseLogging: 0 listenPort: 1080 dynamicPortForwarding: 1 Listen thread started. AllocatedListenPort: 1080 Success. --BeginAccepting --ChilkatLog
As you can see it connects but then it stops, moreover i'm not closing or stopping tunnel anywhere
Hi Issue is resolved
