Client to start an SSH tunnel

This snap starts an SSH tunnel by running the ssh command as a service.

The service is disabled by default. Configure and then start the client as described below:

Copy your SSH key(s) to the root user, e.g.:
sudo cp .ssh/id_ed25519* /root/.ssh/

Connect the ssh-keys interface to access keys and the ssh command:
sudo snap connect ssh-tunnel-client:ssh-keys :ssh-keys

Set the destination:
sudo snap set ssh-tunnel-client destination=""

Set the destination ssh server port:
sudo snap set ssh-tunnel-client port="8022"

Pass arguments to the client:
sudo snap set ssh-tunnel-client args="-R 9901:localhost:22"
The above example is for TCP remote forwarding; listening on port 9901 on the remote server, to tunnel traffic to the client on port 22, on the localhost.
For more details, refer to the OpenSSH client manual:

Start and enable the service:
sudo snap start --enable ssh-tunnel-client

Check the logs:
sudo snap logs -f ssh-tunnel-client
