configuring database reader node after ssh connection

Hi, I am able to establish an ssh connection to my remote host using the SSH connector node.  However, when I configure the Database Reader node to connect to the database on the remote host and attempt to execute the node, the reader cannot establish a connection as it does not accept the output from the SSH connector node, and there does not seem to be a way to configure SSH within the Database Reader node.  I'm sure there must be a simple way to do this.  Assistance is much appreciated.  Thanks.

I guess you want to tunnel your database connection through SSH? This isn't possible inside KNIME because the SSH Connector does not establish a permanent connection. You have to open the SSH connection outside KNIME and configure the port forwarding accordingly (something the SSH Connector cannot do and never will).

Yes, port forwarding worked for me - thanks very much for your response
