Using Putty Tunnels—thanks to Mansoor B Kamthewala  for the original version.

This file is linked from DatabaseSetup.html, the more general discussion of database access for CS636.

Putty is a free Windows program that provides SSH access to any host providing SSH service.

Use Putty to connect to (or or pe07 or ...) on port 22

Go to Connection -> SSH -> Tunnels, and add the following:

Source Port: 1521


Source Port: 3333   (avoiding port 3306 in case you have a local mysql installation using it)


Once you create these, save the session, and then connect with it and log in to users or topcat or pe07

See DatabaseSetup.html for testing the tunnels.
