22.3.5. Procedure – Using inband destination selection and gateway authentication with PuTTY

PSM can authenticate users attempting to establish an SSH connection against a gateway (see Section 18.2, Configuring gateway authentication for more details). You can provide the gateway login credentials in PuTTY:

  1. Enter the gateway username, the username on the target server, the target server's hostname (or IP address), and the hostname (or IP address) of PSM in the gu=<gatewayusername>@<username>@<server>@<scb> format in PuTTY

    Example: 

    Assuming the following values:

    • The gateway username is training1

    • The username on the target server is root

    • The target server is 192.168.60.100

    • The PSM server is scb

    You can enter the following destination in PuTTY:

    gu=training1@root@192.168.60.100@scb

  2. Alternative approach:

    1. Enter only the hostname (or IP address, depending on your configuration) of PSM in PuTTY

    2. At the login prompt, provide the username on the target server, and the target server's hostname (or IP address) using the <username>@<server> format

    3. When prompted, provide the gateway username
