MacOSX (client) need to connect to an AS/400 machine (host) protected by a
SUSE Linux firewall via OpenSSH tunnel.
AFAIK, once the tunnel has established, I connect to localhost (127.0.0.1 -
right ?), and some small piece of software (i.e. FUGU, or JellyfiSSH)
redirects my connection to host through firewall.
So, in order to properly work, my system has to be configured this way :
client (i.e. PowerTerm) > with 127.0.0.1 IP
remote host > its own IP and port (say, 23)
firewall > same as above (port could be i.e.
user ID > has to be written somewhere
When attempting to open the tunnel, I am prompted to send a password to
authenticate my login.
The password request means (hope) I didn't go wrong until now, but the
connection fails after timing out.
This is where I probably missed the point: I know the host knows me (ID and
pw), because I usually work on the very same system with a Windows machine;
there my SSH key is located in the registry, and if it doesn't, I can store
it with an interactive login in a DOS shell.
Has this something to do with SSH key storage ?
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar as well with bash shell and even less with
Apple's keychain because I'm a complete novice to Apple systems.
Could anyone kindly help me understand ?
