Using a SSH Tunnel

When creating a connection, Sling gives you an option to use an SSH tunnel to securely access a connection not exposed to the public internet.
If you'd like to use a SSH Tunnel to connect, click the switch under Use SSH Tunnel and fill out the needed information. If you want to use our public key for access, no password is needed.
Using a Public key
Our public key will be listed at the bottom when creating a connection, after toggling the "Use SSH Tunnel" section:
Please see below on how to add a public key to a Unix based server:
mkdir -p ~/.ssh/
cat '<ssh-public-key>' >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
