#110 accepted enhancement

Allow to change "ssh" argument from GUI

Reported by: Daniel Hahler Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.1
Component: Client Keywords:

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

Given the "New connection" dialog, you can only select between "SSH" and direct.

I've filed an issue with xpra ( to connect through an inner host via SSH.

The solution I've found was to use "--ssh 'outer ssh inner'" to make this work.

So, the New Connection dialog (but any other connection editing dialogs also), should allow to specify the ssh command to be used.

Alternatively / additionally, as mentioned in the xpra issue, "outer:inner" could get recognized and handled as an array of hosts in the first place.

Thanks for your report.
I would like to keep the quick-connect dialog simple, maybe this could go under the "Connection" tab for each server.
In any case, this does not seem to be a very common usage scenario so I am quite reluctant to spend time and effort doing something that is likely to complicate the dialogs further, all for a use case that is likely to remain rare.
That said, patches are always welcome!

Can't this be achieved with ssh_config ?

Unlikely to get done anytime soon... but patches are always welcome.
