All the necessary parameters of SSH connection are available on the SSH tab of the Database Registration dialog and on the first step of the Register Host Wizard. (*)

Since version 4.0.13 MySQL server started to support the dropping of foreign keys for InnoDB table, and this ability is also supported by MySQL Manager now. Use the corresponding menu items on the Foreign Keys tab of the Table Editor or the Visual Database Designer (*) popup menu to drop or edit foreign keys.
