Proxy server

Proxy preferences
A proxy server can be used to "tunnel" your server Telnet or SSH connection through an external firewall. Only specific firewalls with proxy support can be used. TeSSH supports both the SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 proxy protocols, along with specific Telnet proxy servers.

For SOCKS4 or SOCKS5 protocols, select the protocol supported by your firewall, then enter the Hostname and Port of the proxy server. Typically a SOCKS proxy runs on port 1080. For SOCKS5 you can also enter the username and password required for authentication with the proxy server.

A Telnet Proxy server allows you to make a telnet connection via another computer running a shell or telnet server program. Enter the hostname and port of the telnet server, along with your login username and password. The Telnet Connect Cmd is used to make the outgoing server connection from the Telnet Proxy server. You can use the %host and %port predefined system variables and these will be filled in with the values of the server hostname and port that you are trying to connect to. This Telnet Connect Cmd is sent to the telnet proxy server as soon as it connects with your username and password.

The WWW Proxy is not used for server connections. You cannot connect to a server through a simple WWW or HTTP proxy server (which is only intended for web browsing). However, several features within TeSSH, such as the Help File updates and checking for a new TeSSH version, require an HTTP web connection. If you have a web firewall, enter the hostname and port of that firewall to allow these web connections to operate normally.
