Uninstalling the SSH Gateway on OSX


This articles helps you uninstall the SSH Gateway from your OSX server. 


Step 1. Run Uninstall Application

When you installed the SSH Gateway an Uninstall application was included in the installation. To run this open up a terminal and cd into the installation directory, which by default is /var/ssh-gateway. You may have changed this during the installation process.

Execute the command

sudo open SSH\ Gateway\ Uninstaller.app/


When requested, enter your password to raise the privileges. You may find this happens twice, once on the command line and again when the uninstaller starts.


Run through the uninstaller prompts
