Argo Tunnel with SSH is disconnecting

#1

I’ve been testing Argo Tunnel with SSH and using it to login to servers behind our firewall. It works OK, but often disconnects when there is a network glitch or the screensaver on my Mac kicks it.

Is there a way to make Argo Tunnel maintain a persistent connection to my terminal? (I’m using Iterm2 on a Mac)

I’ve seen “connection closed unexpectedly” errors in the log and Argo Tunnel then reconnects. But it also disconnects my terminal connection.

I was using et (Eternal Terminal) to maintain persistent terminal connections and it works fine. Why can’t Argo Tunnel do the same thing? I know that dropping a connection on a web connection is not usually noticed (and is easily fixed with a refresh). However, on an SSH terminal connection it’s a major pain to have to relogin every time there’s a temporary glitch.

I tried to figure out how to make Argo Tunnel work with et, but it uses a different port (normally 2022). From what I can tell, Argo Tunnel only seems to work with port 22 (SSH) and 3389 (RDP). If there is a way to make it work with et on port 2022, that may solve my problem.

Does anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions?
