This should be a great feature to have an extra text field for further 'ssh' command line parameters.
eg. i need to add compression to tunnel connection and desire to have '-C' option in ssh command.
Thanks

    You can get the same effect by entering defaults for specific hosts in options into your ~/.ssh/config file. See the man page "ssh_config". This is also a good place to set Keep Alive options for hosts you only use for tunnels.

    @brendankidwell,
    Thanks for the tip about ssh config file. This is a good solution for non-beginner users.

    Before finding GSTM (and also now) i used my own shell script to manage my tunnel connections. But when there is an effort to make a GUI for tunnel management, why not forget manual terminal tricks and have ALL available features in our GUI side?
