dbQwikMySSH - Painless MyODBC SSH Management

We just introduced dbQwikMySSH only a few short weeks ago and it is doing very well. This week we released a minor update to make it even easier to use. We added a new function to automatically reconfigure your MyODBC connections to pass through the secure SSH tunnel. Restoring them is just as easy. You simple right click the connection to secure, and choose the Secure option in the popup menu. To restore connections to their original settings you right click a secured connection and choose the Restore option.

There are a couple of other tweaks to the interface to make it easier to understand what’s going on. For instance the MySQL server detection is easy to confuse with your connection settings. The Server check is just to see if there is a MySQL server listening; it does not have anything to do with the authentication of your MySQL connection. So we have refined the interface a bit to try to make that a bit clearer. A couple of small bug fixes are included to round out this release. If you are installed and want to get the latest, you can run the live-update. Otherwise just download the latest install from: it has the latest updates.
