Bug Description

Binary package hint: vinagre

I use a non-standard port for my SSH daemon, and the Vinagre client won't permit me to use the non-standard port I use.

It's quite obvious that it's not using the file ~/.ssh/config as that does specify the non-standard port.

Accepted into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

The fix works nicely, thanks.

In a possibly related note, it would be nice if the 'Host' setting automatically defaulted to localhost if left blank. I imagine that this would be the most likely candidate for a target host when using a ssh tunnel in vinagre, and it's not particularly obvious what to type in there from the connection screen.

The fix worked when I tried connecting from home, but it doesn't seem to work over the internet. I just get 'connection closed'. Perhaps my router forwarding affected the testing?

The router forwards port 8822 to port 22 on the networked machine. My test is to get vinagre to create a ssh tunnel on the connection to the external address on port 8822. I've still got vinagre v 2.30.2-0ubuntu1 installed. I can connect if I connect with ssh forwarding port 6000 to the remote VNC port and then just connect with vinagre to localhost:6000, so everything is set up correctly for it to work as far as I can see.

Is this likely the same bug, or another one?
