After entering your SAP HANA Cloud Platform user password you may encounter a proxy error. To resolve this proxy error follow the steps in the read me file located with your SDK tools in the explorer window. 

After setting the correct proxy in the command window copy and paste in the same tunnel syntax used before into the command window. After entering your password you will have successfully tunneled into the SAP HANA Cloud platform.

Also in the read me file is information about how to set up the properties of your proxy.

Back in the command line tool a schema name, user name and temporary password is now displayed. This information is only pertinent for the recently created database schema. The tunnel is only open for 24 hours and if 24 hours passes or the tunnel is closed only the user’s password information will change. A user can only connect to one personal schema at a time in SAP HANA Studio.

Check out Jamie’s video on using the command line tool to connect to a development schema hosted in the SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
