How To

  • Download tarball from
  • cd '/Users/<yourusername>/Development/src/proxytunnel/' (or whereever you put the downloaded tgz)
  • tar xzf proxytunnel-1.9.0.tgz
  • cd proxytunnel-1.9.0
  • make
  • cp proxytunnel /usr/local/bin/[1]
  • cp proxytunnel.1 /usr/local/man/man1/


  • cd ~/.ssh
  • vi config
Host aliasnameofhost
       ProxyCommand /usr/local/bin/proxytunnel -p <proxy.somecompany>:<port> -d <>:<port>


  1. You could also use make install, but in my version of proxytunnel, that didn't work.
