Hi, i have a multi treading C# software that call SSH Tunnel within one of the instances, how can i verify that other parties could not read the ssh credentials that i have provided to the chilkat component ? maybe call a function that prevents credential read.
also, i need to close and release the component instance a few times a day, calling Dispose() is enough or sshTunnel = null is required ?
The Dispose call will close/tear down any tunnels that might be open. The only thing you're left with is the object instance itself taking up a little memory. Given that it's just one line of code, I would set sshTunnel = null after calling Dispose. No reason not to..
I don't fully understand what you mean by "other parties reading the SSH credentials". SSH authentication happens after the secure channel (tunnel) becomes established, so the login/password is not transmitted over an insecure connection.
i have received the following errors while trying to start the connection again with the component,
ChilkatLog: BeginAccepting: DllDate: Aug 5 2012 UnlockPrefix: LIMPOXSSH Username: ENDPOINT_5-PC:EndPoint_1 Architecture: Little Endian; 32-bit Language: .NET 4.0 VerboseLogging: 0 listenPort: 48492 destPort: 80 destHostname: 192.168.1.208 acceptThreadSessionLogPath: Listen thread did not start. Failed. --BeginAccepting --ChilkatLogafter i have receive this error i do those action and try again:
is there a better way to handle those errors ?
after some testing, i have better remarks,
sshTunnel.Dispose(); sshTunnel = null; sshTunnel = new SshTunnel();
i have lost the instance, and the background thread is still listening, using Dispose() did not closed the current listening background thread.
so now i am using
on normal usage and only dispose and null after those 2 commands. this is look like a bug in the Dispose() function.
