Configure Multi-hop Server Dialog Box

Getting there
  1. Open the Secure Shell Settings dialog box.
  2. Select the Multi-hop section.
  3. Select Add ().

Use this dialog box to add a server to your multi-hop list. The options are:

Starting local port This is a port on your local Windows workstation. Multi-hop connections are forwarded from the specified port if it is available. If the port is in use, the port number is incremented until an available port is found.
Host name Identify the host computer through which data will be sent.
Configure Opens the Secure Shell settings dialog box, which you can use to configure non-default settings for this tunnel.

NOTE: An alternate way to configure non-default settings is to specify an SSH config scheme for this connection.
Port Specifies a port on the remote host to which data will be sent. The default is 22, which is the port used by most SSH servers.
User name (Optional) Specify a name here if this host requires a user name that’s not the same as the one you specified for your original connection.
SSH config scheme (Optional) Specify an SSH configuration scheme to use for this connection. (Reflection uses the host name by default.)
