Options

The following options are available:

  • -l login_name

    Logs in using this username.

  • +a

    Enables authentication agent forwarding.

  • -a

    Disables authentication agent forwarding.

  • +x

    Enables X11 connection forwarding.

  • -x

    Disables X11 connection forwarding.

  • -k dir

    Custom configuration dir where ssh2_config, hostkeys and userkeys are located.

  • -i file

    Specifies the identification file for public-key authentication. This option ca also be specified in the configuration file.

  • -F file

    Reads an alternative configuration file.

  • -t

    Tty; allocates a tty even if command is given.

  • -v

    Verbose; displays verbose debugging messages. Equivalent to -d 2.

  • -d level

    Sets debug level.

  • -V

    Displays version string.

  • -q

    Quiet; does not display any warning messages.

  • -c cipher

    Selects encryption algorithm. Multiple -c options are allowed and a single -c flag can have only one cipher.

  • -m MAC

    Selects MAC algorithm. Multiple -m options are allowed and a single -m flag can have only one MAC.

  • -p port

    Connects to this port. Server must be on the same port.

  • -S

    Does not request a session channel.

  • -L listen-port:host:port

    Forwards local port to remote address.

    This causes ssh2 to listen to connections on a port, and forward them to the other side by connecting to host:port.

  • -R listen-port:host:port

    Forwards remote port to local address.

    This causes ssh2 to listen to connections on a port, and forward them to the other side by connecting to host:port.

  • -g

    Gateways ports, which means that remote hosts may connect to locally forwarded ports. Note the logic of + and - in this option.

  • +g

    Does not gateway ports. Listens to tunneling connections originating only from the localhost. Note the logic of + and - in this option.

  • +C

    Enables compression.

  • -C

    Disables compression.

  • -E prov

    Uses prov as the external key provider.

  • -I initstr

    Uses initstr as initialization string for the external key provider.

  • -o options

    Processes the option as if it was read from a configuration file. The format is -o "ConfigKeyword=value".

  • -h

    Displays help.

  • -K

    Specifies the identity key file for public-key authentication that is applied first. Multiple -K options are allowed. This option can also be specified in the configuration file.

The command can be either of the following:

  • remote_command [arguments] ...

    Runs the command on a remote host.

  • -s service

    Enables a service in remote server.

Type ssh2 -h to see the command-line syntax, the location of the configuration files, supported ciphers, and your license type.
