The following sections provide examples for using inband destination selection to establish an SSH connection, including scenarios where nonstandard ports or gateway authentication is used.

Since some client applications do not permit the @ and : characters in the username, alternative characters can be used as well:

  • To separate the username and the target server, use the @ or % characters, for example: username%targetserver@scb_address

  • To separate the target server and the port number, use the :, +, or / characters, for example: username%targetserver+port@scb_address

  • If you do not specify the username or the address in nontransparent SSH and Telnet connections, One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) displays an interactive prompt where you can enter the username and the server address.

In RDP, do not use the @ character as an inband data separator but use alternative characters, for example, the % character.
