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)


You can use PuTTY (free, open-source, portable, Windows) as a command line utility:

putty.exe -ssh emind@

You just need to add PuTTY to your Path:

enter image description here

PuTTY Command Line Options: `-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).

I use bitvise ssh client with proxifier portable edition. (If you want I can give detailed instructions, but it should be pretty simple to figure out).
