A workaround for anyone looking: sudo yum downgrade python-paramiko On fedora this produces: Installing : python-paramiko-1.10.1-2.fc20.noarch 1/2 Cleanup : python-paramiko-1.15.1-1.fc20.noarch 2/2 Verifying : python-paramiko-1.10.1-2.fc20.noarch 1/2 Verifying : python-paramiko-1.15.1-1.fc20.noarch So downgrading from python-paramiko-1.15.1-1 to 1.10.1-2 enables ssh tunnels to work again, without having to downgrade openssh openssh-clients openssh-server from 6.7 to 5.3. Suggested fix: update to the latest paramiko (1.15)I can confirm this is happing for me running Fedora 20 once all updates have been applied on a fresh OS install with workbench 188.8.131.5221 64 bit.If you do not specify a username the username that you are logged in as on the local client machine is passed to the remote machine.If you want to specify a different username, use the following command: Note: This documentation is provided by Red Hat®, Inc.
