EZSSH will start the SSH Session in a new window. EZSSH Interactive

Extra Options

You can fine tune your request with the following optional parameters:

Specify a Port Number

By default EZSSH creates all the SSH Connections to port 22. If your endpoint has SSH enabled in a different port you can specify the port by adding a -p or a -port to the EZSSH command. Example:

ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -p 840

Certificate Length

If you want to change the default length of time the certificate is valid for, you can specify the -l --certLength or option to specify the amount of hours you want your certificate to be valid for (Valid range is 1-MAX_POLICY_LENGTH). Example:

ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -l 8

Azure Networking JIT

If you use Azure Networking JIT EZSSH can make the request to open it for you. Enter -j or -jit for EZSSH to open a JIT request on your behalf.

ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -j

Bastion Key Forwarding

If you use a jump box (bastion server) and require to use the same credential to authenticate to the second endpoint, EZSSH will ensure the that the certificate is forwarded Note: The private key never leaves your PC. Enter -a or -A for EZSSH to forward the certificate to the bastion server.
