Description (last modified by dkocher)

It would really be very useful if Cyberduck had an option to run a simple shell command before logging in to a host.

I have to use port forwarding to log in remotely to my machine at work. So to SFTP files back and forth, I have to start X11 first, run something like ssh -x -N -l <user> <server> -L2222:<mymachine>:22 &, and only then can I connect to localhost on port 2222 in Cyberduck to access the remote machine.

An extra field under "More options" when you connect to a host would seem an appropriate place for this.

I noticed recently that PuTTY provides port forwarding (under "Tunnels"). Something similar in Cyberduck would be great, and this could provide inspiration for the interface.
