Unhappy Ignored - Port Forward Filter - Version 8.7.3


Not sure if I'm doing this correctly...
SecureCRT - Version 8.7.3 (x64 build 2279)

I'm trying to allow another guest to access the SecureCRT local port forwarding.

[PC (A) TELNET] -- > [PC (B) SecureCRT port 6200 ] -- > [Server Port 6200]

I have setup port forwarding from PC (B) to the server ... however from reading and testing i can see the listen port Reading I see that I will need to further modify <session>.ini and modify the following...


S:"Port Forward Filter"=allow,,0 deny,,0
S:"Reverse Forward Filter"=allow,,0 deny,,0


S:"Port Forward Filter"=allow,,0 allow,,6200
S:"Reverse Forward Filter"=allow,,0 allow,,6200

However testing ( and logging ) I can verify the port is only opened for listening on and not to allow for connections?

I also tested changing the,0 to,0 <- and the port remained open on and did not move to as expected. Thus from the data it seems this version of SecureCRT does not work as intended OR am I just missing configuration needed?

Working Log:
telnet 6200

Welcome to Microsoft Telnet Client Escape Character is 'CTRL+]'

[LOCAL] : Starting port forward from on local to remote
[LOCAL] : SEND[1]: Send SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_OPEN("direct-tcpip")
[LOCAL] : SEND[1]: channel close
[LOCAL] : RECV[1]: channel close.
[LOCAL] : RECV[1]: SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_CLOSE, closing socket.

Non-Working Log:

telnet 6200
Connecting To not open connection to the host, on port 6200: Connect failed


^^ Nothing

Hummm .... Any thoughts?

Thank you.
