Mudding via telnet from an SSH session (CMUD Pro)
So I create a session to log me into a SSH server.

No problem.

Now is there a special way in which I can connect to a MUD via this session and have things like MCCP and MXP working? At the moment I'm simply using the telnet command from within the SSH session to connect to the MUD of choice which doesn't make full use of the fuller capabilities of CMUD.

Simply logging into the MUD (instead of via a SSH session) with CMUD is not an option.

Is the SSH server the mud, or are you using it as proxy?

If I understand correctly, you are connecting to the SSH proxy then trying to connect to the MUD. If that's the case, then what you probably want to do something like in this thread. If I'm completely off base then please give a bit more detail on exactly what you are trying to accomplish.

That's exactly what I was after. Thanks Tech!

I followed these instructions which solved the problem (as mentioned in other thread):

Its ok Prog, while Fang and I mentioned it could be done, at least you've given actual instructions :D

Of course you can configure a PERMANENT tunnel too, so I'll give those instructions here...

I'll be using and for this example.

Open PuTTy
Create a profile by typing into the host name/ip address box and MySSH into the box below where it says saved sessions
Click Save (I do this often, its habit)
In the left hand settings pane, expand SSH
click tunneling for your source port put the port of your MUD, in this case 4000
For destination, put
Choose the remote radio (option) button.
Click add
In the left hand pane, choose Session
Click Save again

Now click connect.
In zMUD simply edit your character to connect to localhost in place of the normal IP or hostname.
This will make it connect to your PuTTy terminal on the proper port and be forwarded.
Now wasn't that simple? ;)
