I've running port forwarding in WindowsXP as well as Windows Vista by using
autossh, running as a service, installed by cygrunsrv.
cygrunsrv -I service-tunnel -f "secure tunnel for service" \
-n -t auto -y tcpip -O -u $priv_user -w $priv_pwd -p /bin/nice \
-a "-n 10 /bin/autossh -R 12345:localhost:22 \
-M 0 -N -C -i /etc/ssh/id_rsa -p 24 firstname.lastname@example.org
My problem is:
If the client have a dialin connection to an internet provider, the internet
connection isn't established when the autossh service will be started.
Therefore I get an error message:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname server.domain.at: no address associated with
How to configure/install the service wether in a way that he waits for an
established internet connection or in a way that he try again until the
hostname can be resolved?
If autossh is started succesfull and I disconnect the internet connection,
autossh will try again and again until the connection is established again.
But autossh do not start if the hostname can not be resolved.
Thanks for your hints
