How to SSH to Kubernetes Pod with SSH ProxyCommand using socat


  1. socat
  2. kubectl with proper ~/.kube/config that can connect to your cluster
  3. Working knowledge of kubectl client
  4. OpenSSH client

How does it work?

  1. kubectl does port forwarding to sshd port of your pod. I'm using pm2 process managed to keep my services alive in my workstation container. If you have only sshd, easiest to use is dropbear
  2. ProxyCommand of OpenSSH client uses socat to redirect two way fd - to forwarded port of kubectl

Windows how to copy paste like Mac OSX terminal using Alt instead of CMD in Linux Terminal Emulators with AHK AutoHotKey



Copy Paste (CTRL+C) command doesn't work for Linux terminals as CTRL+C is used for SIGINT signal to stop/interrupt works on Linux shell.


You are on Windows but need to have Linux shell like bash or zsh and using one of popular terminal emulators


  1. Download and Install AHK (AutoHotKey) //
  2. Put copy-paste.ahk anywhere in your machine and double click after saving it.
  3. Voila, now Alt + C (same position as CMD + C) will work just like Macbook on most of Linux Terminal emulators on Windows (tested with Cmder, MinTTY, Hyper.JS)
