I really like the tunneling support in 4.0beta! Very Happy It saves me the trouble of having to manually create a tunnel. One problem, though, is that while WinSCP will connect through the tunnel that it has created, PuTTY sessions spawned from WinSCP will still try to connect directly instead of through the tunnel that WinSCP is using. I'd imagine that this ought to be easy to fix; when connected through a tunnel, instead of WinSCP passing along to PuTTY the remote address and port, pass it localhost and the port that was selected for the tunnel.

Thanks for a hint. I'll fix that.
It is not that easy as WinSCP uses existing PuTTY session, if there's a one with the same name as current WinSCP session. But I can make a temporary copy and just modify the address/port.

Since the next release, WinSCP will make PuTTY connect throught its tunnel.
