gSTM configuration by hand

Gnome has a handy utility for managing your SSH tunnels called gSTM (Gnome SSH Tunnel Manager). But if you have to manage a large number of tunnels, the GUI becomes quite painful. Instead, you can edit the configuration files by hand. The files are stored under $HOME/.gSTM.

$ ls -l ~/.gSTM
total 12
-rw-rw-r– 1 chandru chandru 1354 Sep  3 04:50 jumpbox1.reJBkD.gstm
-rw-rw-r– 1 chandru chandru 2901 Sep  5 09:51 jumpbox2.0VZHUf.gstm
-rw-rw-r– 1 chandru chandru 1212 Aug 31 14:51 jumpbox3.Fg3FFh.gstm

A sample entry in one of the configuration file looks like this.

        <tunnel>
<type>local</type>
<port1>9015</port1>
<host>hostname.domain</host>
<port2>22</port2>
</tunnel>
