Vista SSH Client Tunnel Crash

I don't know if this is the right group or not, but other posts on
crashes in clients have led me here...

I've downloaded non-commercial SSH Secure Shell client from
(version 3.2.9 Build 283) and I can connect to my ssh server correctly
with the UI version.  However when I try to add an outgoing tunnel on
my connection, the client crashes.  I mean, just adding an empty
tunnel -- navigate to the tuneling tab in settings, click Add, and
then click OK -- causes the crash.

I'm using it for the first time on VIsta Home Premium.  Has anybody
else had similar experience?

Thanks for the help.

yes, I get exaclty the same problem. The free Putty works OK in vista
for tunneling though

I wrote a program called AbsoluteTelnet that also does SSH (1 and 2).
The port forwarding (and X forwarding) work well under Vista.  The UI
is available in seven different languages and the app is fully Unicode
and IME aware.  Dowload the trial and check it out:

The same this is happening to me and I'm using the same version (version 3.2.9
Build 283) as you. It seems the crash is gui related.
A work around for it is to setup your connection like usual, except you do not
add your tunnels.
Once your connection profile is saved open this file in a text editor:
eg. C:\Users\<YOUR_USERNAME>\Application Data\SSH\<YOUR_CONNECTION_NAME.ssh2>

In this file search for the words "Outgoing Tunnels" and add your tunneling
information in the following format:

Another way is you can simply copy over your working connection from XP over to
the SSH connection profile directory in Vista.
