    Manager many hosts via SSH relay

    We have PAM 3.2 installed and are currently configuring it. We will be managing our UNIX hosts via SSH relay. If you are doing the same, how are your admins accessing the UNIX hosts via the SSH relay feature of PAM? The Java SSH client via https://<fmconsole>/myaccess is not full-featured so PuTTY or something similar is better suited. Is there an easy way to allow clicking on the hostnames under the SSH tab to invoke PuTTY for the SSH connection rather than the SSH console? Is there a better way to present the hostnames under the SSH tab, possibly grouped by categories rather than two lines for each host (rule name and then credential)?

    Re: Manager many hosts via SSH relay

    From the UI, currently the Java SSH client is the only option. As an alternative you could use any SSH client like PuTTY or command line ssh clients etc. to connect to ssh relay and access your target systems. The port number of ssh relay would be 2222.
    For e.g.: Suppose your ssh relay IP is,, then from cmd line , you can use the command - `ssh -t -p 2222 <user@>`

    Thanks. We know how to use putty with the PAM SSH relay to access the server. However, having everything in one place via the PAM User Console is nice. Anyway, it would be nice for the SSH Relay to invoke a user-defined routine rather than the Java SSH Client to invoke the SSH session. We could then write something locally to bring up Putty.
