I wanted to play with the new version of MyQuery that was just released. In order to use it, I needed to use a ssh tunneling tool. I have used various hacks in the past but I wanted something that was at least moderately well done.
A bit of googling uncovered Bitvise’s Tunnelier. It is a free for personal use tool that is designed just for tunneling. It seems to handle it with some aplomb. Ten minutes after I downloaded it, I was online with a remote server using MyQuery.
If you are using a Windows desktop and want to use some of the various graphical client programs that don’t include port forwarding this could very easily fill your needs. I just wish I had found it a long time ago.
