Command Line


A few months back I asked if there was a command line to pass S2C settings without having to open up Tunnelier and configuring.  At that point, you said that this might be part of a future release.  Do you know if this will be available with the next release?  If not, is there a way to modify these settings in Tunnelier without having to open it up and configure?

Last, I thought I saw somewhere that there was an option to install tunnelier without using the setup file.  Is there a way?  I'd like to distribute tunnelier with our application. When they install our application, it automatically installs and configures tunnelier without the user having to go in and "mess" things up.

Hello Mike,

command-line passing C2S and S2C has not yet been implemented. I'll get to it ASAP. I think it this should be ready at the end of the month.

I'll ask Denis to answer the second question.

Hello Mike,

there's a subtle but important difference between telling your users to use Tunnelier, and bundling Tunnelier with your application.

If you tell your customers to use Tunnelier, they can use it free of charge on an individual basis, or they need to purchase a license if it's used by 5 or more people in a department. In that case the licensing is between Bitvise and themselves, and you take no part in that.

However, if you distribute Tunnelier with your application, then you need to take care that the licensing is in order. If you bundle Tunnelier with your application, you either need to purchase a license for each person who will be using your application, or you need to agree with us on a different licensing arrangement.

If you have not yet talked to us about licensing, you can contact the licensing 'department' through this page:


Either me or my colleague Nina will help you there.

Best regards,

Thanks for the reply...and getting the C2S/S2C command line functionality ready for the end of the month.  This will save us a lot of time.

I've posted a message re the licensing via the link provided, so I'll communicate with you guys on that off-line.

Re my installation question, is it possible to do what I am interested in doing?

Yes, Tunnelier can easily be installed without our installer.

What installer does is copy files to installation directory, puts installation directory in PATH, associate .tlp files with Tunnelier.exe and .wst files with sshdstgs.exe.

The minimum is to copy the required files to the target machine.

So here we are...end of the month, err, beginning of the next.  Any chance this has been implemented :)?

Can you drop me a mail (find a mail icon next to my nick), and I'll reply with a prerelease Tunnelier version tomorrow.
