Project description

## SSH metro client

Client application to communicate and connect to SSH tunnels started by an [SSH metro server]().

The functionalities of this application is limited to request for SSH tunnels creation in an SSH metro server and connect to it via SSH.

### Technology

  • Requests: The famous and incredible HTTP Requests library to communicate to the SSH metro server.
  • Pexpect: To handled operating system level commands to start an SSH connection to the SSH tunnel.

### Installation

To install SSH metro client, just run the following command on your machine:

` $> pip install ssh-metro-client `

or

` $> pipenv install ssh-metro-client `

### Running

To start SSH metro client, you need to specify the details of the target host you want to connect through SSH and the details of the SSH metro server. As an example, you can run a command like the below on your terminal:

` $> ssh_metro_client user@targetmachine_host:targetmachine_port sshmetroserver_host:sshmetroserver_port `

The above command prompts for a password to be provided for the user on the target machine targetmachine_host. The command below, however, specifies the password for the user as part of the command:

` $> ssh_metro_client user/password@targetmachine_host:targetmachine_port sshmetroserver_host:sshmetroserver_port `

For security reasons, the former is recommended.
