Hook for ssh remote execution using Paramiko. ref: This hook also lets you create ssh tunnel and serve as basis for SFTP file transfer

get_tunnel(self, remote_port, remote_host='localhost', local_port=None)[source]

Creates a tunnel between two hosts. Like ssh -L <LOCAL_PORT>:host:<REMOTE_PORT>.

  • remote_port (int) – The remote port to create a tunnel to

  • remote_host (str) – The remote host to create a tunnel to (default localhost)

  • local_port (int) – The local port to attach the tunnel to
