RE: MySQL over SSH connection

We need this too. Strange that it isn't there yet. Seems like a common way to connect to unix/linux hosted databases.

RE: MySQL over SSH connection

Hi, this really is essential. The MariaDB is on a linux webserver, and needs to be connected with SSH from the Windows based server. This setup will exists millions of times.

RE: MySQL over SSH connection

This feature is very essential. Companies usually have their database inside a cloud and every time I try to connect to them, SSH Tunnelling becomes my headache. OBDC is a very lengthy and confusing way.
