is there a way of working with SSH protocol "riding" a remote connection sw (E.G.: TEAM VIEWER)

Hello,
if i'm using team viewer SW to support my users,
is there a way to use the SW for working with SSH ? without the customer open ports in the FW, etc. but directly trough the team viewer "channel" ?

Have never used team viewer and know nothing about it.  If it uses its own TCP ports/connections you might be able to use port forwarding/redirection.

Here is how you can do port forwarding/redirection with ssh:

Hello,
but still in your solution , i will need my customer IT department to open the right port in its FW and allow me access,
i want to avoid this...
in a SW like teamviewer the user has to accept your connection... this is why i look for something similar.

Please point out where you think you need to open a firewall port with the link I posted?

The only port that would be required to be open is port 22, ssh.  If mean that they would need to open up port 22, then yes they would need to make firewall changes.  

However, any solution would require some port to be open on the firewall.  Although it is not common, you can setup ssh to work over any port, say like port 80.   Just setup your ssh server to listen on port 80 and tell the client to ssh to port 80.

Hello,
the reason i'm asking this is:
currently my support people are working with TEAM-VIEWER (no need FOR  IT involvement,  FIREWALLS, PERMISSIONS REQUESTS, ETC) but we suspect that some clients are "recording" our typing to have the admin password to the device when we give support .

so i wondered if there is a SSH connection SW that "rides" a protocol like team viewer....
something that the client and my support Eng. can handle between them without any IT involvement..
i assume that there is no SW as i need...

I just looked at TeamViewer, I never used it before.   It supports using https, which is encrypted, so why not use HTTPS?

I would venture to guess that if a company is allowing http (port 80 traffic) that they also allow https (port 443).

Hi,
this kind of SW are allowing you to connect remotely to a computer and work on it.
but when you are typing on your keyboard ....it like typing on his...
so basically the user can record your typings...

Oh, if you do a seach in something like Google for "SSH Tunnel TeamViewer" you will find a few posts on how to do this.  However, in my personal opinion using HTTPS with TeamViewer is just as secure and way easier than doing SSH tunneling.

Recording the key strokes on the end users computer is way different from what you were asking

It does not matter what you do, if they have a keystroke logger installed on their computer, they can record your key strokes.  Even using SSH.  All SSH tunneling does is hide the real traffic while it is in transit over the network, the same thing that HTTPS does.

Once the traffic gets to the end point, it must be clear text and "readable" by computer.  There is nothing you can do to prevent a keystroke logger from being used.
