I would like to connect to a Postgres server installed on a remote server using an ssh tunnel. I have Windows so I use cygwin for SSH.
I do the following on cygwin:
# Create the tunnel ssh -f user@remote_server -p ssh_port -L 5433:127.0.0.1:5432 -N
On pgAdmin, I set the host to localhost and the port to 5433 as well as the username/password/db.
When I try to connect, it is running, and then it displays an error message:
Error connecting to the server: server closed the connection unexpectedly.
On cygwin, I see this message:
Write failed: Broken pipe
The ssh process has actually been killed so I guess it crashed? But why?
How could I get more information to know what the problem is and especially where (pgadmin or ssh tunnel on cygwin...) ?
