How to create persistent (permanent) SSH tunnel under Windows
Old fashioned way requires you to install a bunch of Linux ports like CygWin, setup scripts and then keep an eye on them or use tools like PuTTY and keep an eye on them too. Hopefully now you can just install Persistent SSH and let it to keep your SSH tunnels up and running.
- Download ADVSoft Persistent SSH tunnel manager
- Install it
- Go to web GUI (http://localhost:7777 by default) and change default password (it is 'admin')
- Press + NEW TUNNEL and create your new local or remote SSH tunnel with your desired settings (please note that private key authorization is available only in Standard and Professional editions)
- Enjoy. If TCP or SSH connection dropped, Persistent SSH will attempt to restart SSH tunnel(s) until success.
