PortForwardConnect method

Called when user port forwarding is to be established.




  • Basic
object.PortForwardConnect Owner, User, RemoteHost, RemotePort, Action
The PortForwardConnect(object,Owner,User,RemoteHost,RemotePort,Action) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type IwodSSHDNotify.
OwnerA wodSSHDcom object. Instance of wodSSHServer that called this notification method.
UserA SSHUser object. Reference to user who requested port forwarding.
RemoteHostA String value. Hostname or IP address of remote peer.
RemotePortA Long value. Port number used on the remote peer's computer.
ActionA SSHActions enumeration, as described in settings. Action to perform - Allow allows connection, Deny refuses it.


The settings for Action are:

Constant Value Description
Deny0 Deny execution of the action.
Allow 1 Allow to execute action.

This method is called only if you implemented IwodSSHNotify interface in your application, and wodSSHD.Notification property has received reference to instance of your implementation.

This notification method is called after request for port forward or port binding (appropriate notification was already called when such request was made by the client) is successfully established. At this point either wodSSHD did successfully connect to the server, or someone successfully connected to wodSSHD. In either way, wodSSHD is ready to forward traffic between end-peer and the connected client.

You can check RemoteHost and RemotePort arguments to decide whether remote peer is allowed to be connected to the server. If you wish to cancel this action, you can set Action = Deny and the connection with end-peer will be dropped immediately. Connected client will not be notified about this connection in such case.
