    I'm trying to use Fugu (a Mac OS X GUI client for SSH and SFTP) but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how you're supposed to start an SSH session with a remote server. It says that you have to create a new tunnel and turn on remote login and stuff like that, but that doesn't make any sense to me when I can use the Terminal and ssh to the other server just fine, without any of that stuff. The problem with that approach is that I then cannot figure out how to start an SFTP session with the server to transfer files to and from it. Complicating matters somewhat is the fact that the server I ssh into is a "gatekeeper" server, which serves to authenticate users, so they can then rsh into another server to get actual work done. I need to be able to start an SFTP session with this second server, but I cannot figure out how to do it once I'm in via SSH.:eek:

    From Fugu Readme:

    "Once your SSH tunnel is established, you can connect through it to the server you entered in the Remote Host field. To make this connection, you do not connect to the Remote Host, but to your own computer, or "localhost." Say, for example, you're tunnelling to an FTP server. After establishing your SSH tunnel, open an FTP client, and in the Server field or its equivalent, enter "localhost". In the Port field, enter the number you put in the Local Port field of Fugu's SSH Tunnel window. In the Password field, enter the password you use for the FTP server, and connect. Your connection is re-directed securely through your tunnel host to the FTP server."

    There's more information if you check out the help if this doesn't answer your question.

    Thank you, but that isn't quite what I'm trying to do. I want something equivalent to
    Code:
    ssh username@server
    on the command line, since I can log in successfully that way but can't send or receive files.
