This app still works perfectly well in Lion. It has a great UI, handles all the tunnel methods I need and is free!

None of the other options available to create SSH tunnels has worked for me, except for iSSH, but iSSH has no way to save different sessions, different tunnels. SSHTunnel allows not only this but much more things, its configurability is superb, even if it's a little bit difficult to guess how to configure (yes, I should have RTFM ;) )

Nice little app. Does what it is intended to do. Interface is very intuitive. Took me about 1 minute (30 sec to find it's IP) to configure tunnel to Postgres server to connect with PgAdmin3. Worked like a charm from first try.

The auto-updater keeps downloading the same old version over and over. Had to go to the Yahoo site to get 1.6 which the downloader claims is the latest version. But I did not like the app anyways. Interface and steps to configure a connection are not clear. And the SSH service suggested by the author has an inaccessible web page.

This app doesn't seem to support using keys for authentication so it's largely useless to me.
