You can use the following command line parameters on TTSSH.

/f=<file>
read teraterm.ini(file)
If this value is not a full path, it is understood as a relative path from ttssh.dll.
/ssh-f=<file>
read teraterm.ini(file)
If this value is not a full path, it is understood as a relative path from ttssh.dll.
/ssh-consume=<file>
After teraterm.ini file is read, it is erased.
If this value is not a full path, it is understood as a relative path from ttssh.dll.
/t=<value>
/nossh
disable SSH connection
/telnet
disable SSH connection
/1
connect to server with SSH1 protocol
/ssh1
connect to server with SSH1 protocol
/2
connect to server with SSH2 protocol
/ssh2
connect to server with SSH2 protocol

'/auth=<mode>' means only authentication method
/ssh-L<port1>:<host>:<port2>[:1]
port-fowarding from local port(<port1>) to remote side host(<host>) port(<port2>)
if ':1' exists after the port number of remote side, this setting accepts connection from other hosts.

port-fowarding from remote port(<port1>) to local side host(<host>) port(<port2>)
/ssh-X
X11 port-fowarding
