Argo Tunnel with SSH is disconnecting


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?
