Subject [jira] Commented: (GSHELL-16) New command: ssh
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2007 22:25:50 GMT


Jason Dillon commented on GSHELL-16:

I'm a little bit confused on the functionality of this patch and how it relates to the issue

The idea was to implement a {{ssh}} command that would function very similarly to using {{ssh}}
from a unix shell... so one could connect to a normal {{sshd}} server from inside of GShell.

What it looks like this patch does is sets up a port-formward using a {{sshd}} server, then
uses the GShell {{rsh}} bits to make a _TCP_ connection to the GShell {{rshd}} listener which
is secured by the {{ssh}} port forwarding.

I'm not sure that is all that helpful or friendly.  You can already use a _SSL_ connection
to a GShell {{rshd}} listener and get a secure channel w/o needing to involve a 3rdparty {{sshd}}

Having commands to setup manage {{ssh}} port forwarding may be useful, and may well be part
of the functionality provided by the general {{ssh}} command... but simply using port-forwarding
to make a {{ssh}}-secured _TCP_ connection to a GShell {{rshd}} listener is IMO, not very

Perhaps the description (or lack of a more detailed description for this issue) was confusing?
