MySQL over SSH (tunneling)

Post by ben » Thu 18 Nov 2004 23:59


i've seen some MySQL Managers on the market that can cannot to a mysql server using SSH tunneling. For example most hosting companies have only localhost connections enabled and you cant directly to your webserver mysql from home pc. Those manager can connect to MySQL that are restricted only to localhost connection doing an SSH tunnel. Of course it requires SSH account on the server, must most of servers have SSH telnet access.

Example products: Navicat (
SQLYog (

My question is if you are going to support SSH Tunneling on MyDAC components.

MyDAC doesn't have build-in SSH support but you can easy connect through installed SSH client just setting its address in parameters of TMyConnection.

You can use SecureBlackBox components for that.
