SSH-Agent for SecureGateway

Hello together,

many colleagues asked me, if it's possible to use an ssh-agent for secure-gateway authentification (e.g. Pageant). Now it look's like that didn't work..

Is it planned to implement a feature like this in further versions?

Hi Frank,

there are no plans right now to include an ssh agent. Most of our users are storing the credentials in Royal TS documents. Can you provide some details why this is not an option for you or what the exact use case is?

Thank you,

Hi Stefan,

on many jumpservers we have to use Pageant with an certificate located on a smartcard (2-factor authentification) to connect to them with SSH.

And this certificate we can't store in RoyalTS to use the secure-gateway-feature.

Hi Stefan, Hi Frank,

I found your discussion here and have to say we have the same problem now.
I would be nice when this feature will be implemented in the near future.

Kind regards

Having the same issue here. I had high hopes for the Secure Gateway feature! Alas, it's of no use for me as the private key needed for jump host authentication resides on a smartcard that is only usable via pageant.



Plus one for this also.

We store our ssh keys on Yubikeys, having no way to extract the private key, using gpg-agent or pageant for our ssh connections.

Hi everyone!

Rebex, who is providing the components for terminal (SSH) and file transfer, is currently working on Pageant support. I'm not sure what exactly is covered and how it is working but as soon as they have something, we will see if and how we can integrate this into our product. Stay tuned.
