I know I can write an autoit or batch file, and it would be pretty easy, but does anyone know of a good one click executable to start an SSH tunnel? Ideally, I'd like to have a compilable autoit script that I could also include my key in (I would be the only one with a copy of this EXE, it's just nice and tidy to have a single exe)
putty.exe -ssh email@example.com
You just need to add PuTTY to your Path:
126.96.36.199 `-i': specify an SSH private key
The `-i' option allows you to specify the name of a private key file in `*.'`PPK' format which PuTTY will use to authenticate with the server. This option is only meaningful if you are using SSH. For general information on public-key authentication, see chapter 8. This option is equivalent to the `Private key file for authentication' box in the Auth panel of the PuTTY configuration box (see section 4.20.5).
