Obfuscated SSH with an optional keyword. When supported and enabled in both the client and server, obfuscation makes it more difficult for an observer to detect that the protocol being used is SSH. (Protocol; OpenSSH patches)
When using Bitvise SSH Client to connect to a GSSAPI-enabled SSH server in the same or a trusted Windows domain, you can let Kerberos 5 (or on older platforms, NTLM) perform the server as well as user authentication for you. No manual host key verification; no management of user passwords and public keys. Just tell the SSH client which server in the domain to connect to, and if that server is Bitvise SSH Server or another server with compatible support for GSSAPI, the two programs will authenticate and establish a secure connection automatically.
Server-side forwarding:with Bitvise SSH Server and Client, a server and multiple clients can be set upso that all port forwarding rules are configured centrally at theserver, without requiring any client-side setting updates. The SSHclients only need to be configured once, and port forwarding rules caneasily be changed when necessary.
Command-line parameters are supported. Using command-line automation,a port forwarding session can be started from a link in the Startupmenu without requiring any user interaction whatsoever. Help with thecommand-line parameters can be found in the SSH client log area when itis first started, or by executing 'BvSsh /?' from a command prompt.
Additionally, when the graphical Bitvise SSH Client is running, you can use the command line utility BvSshCtrl to programmatically cause the client to log in, log out, or exit. Run 'BvSshCtrl' for help.
The latest versions of our SSH Client additionally support storing host key information and client authentication keypairs in an SSH Client profile. This means that you can copy the contents of the SSH Client installation directory to a USB key, insert the USB key into another computer, and run the graphical SSH Client as follows:
Bitvise SSH Client incorporates sexec,a scriptable command-line remote execution client which can be used tosecurely execute programs on remote machines from a batch file. Thebatch file can perform actions based on the exit code reported from theremote program, and can capture the remote program's output forprocessing by simple redirection of sexec output.
All Bitvise command-line clients support all authentication methodssupported by Bitvise SSH Client, can load settings from a profile configured in the graphical client, work with the same user keypair and host key database as the graphical client, can connect through a SOCKS or HTTP CONNECT proxy, and support a common set of command-line parameters controlling most aspects of establishing an SSH connection.
Bitvise SSH Client incorporates stnlc, a scriptable command line port forwarding client with support for static port forwarding rules, dynamic SOCKS-based tunneling, FTP-to-SFTP bridge, and SFTP drive mapping.
Bitvise SSH Client incorporates an FTP-to-SFTP bridge which performs translation between the FTP and SFTP protocols, allowing any FTP client application to connect securely to an SFTP server through Bitvise SSH Client. Both active mode and passive modeFTP data connections are supported, as well as restarted transfers,directory listings and other features. All FTP clients should be ableto list directories and transfer files across Bitvise SSH Client's FTP-to-SFTPbridge, including integrated clients in applications such asDreamWeaver, GUI clients such as BulletProof FTP, and command lineclients such as the default ftp.exe client accompanying Windows. If anFTP client you use fails to work with Bitvise SSH Client's FTP-to-SFTP bridge, let us know.
bvterm console: When connected to Bitvise SSH Server, our client provides you with the best console available on the Windows platform. Our bvterm protocol supports the full spectrum of a Windows console's features: colors, Unicode characters, all-key access and large scrollable buffers.
If you need unrestricted terminal access (and still want to use WinSCP for file transfers), you will find integration with PuTTY SSH client useful. This free Telnet and SSH client for Windows can be also downloaded from our PuTTY download page.
This page contains download links for the latest released version ofPuTTY.Currently this is 0.78, released on 2022-10-29.When new releases come out, this page will update to contain thelatest, so this is a good page to bookmark or link to.Alternatively, here is apermanent link to the 0.78 release.Release versions of PuTTY are versions we think are reasonably likelyto work well. However, they are often not the most up-to-dateversion of the code available. If you have a problem with thisrelease, then it might be worth trying outthe development snapshots,to see if the problem has already been fixed in those versions.Package filesYou probably want one of these. They include versions ofall the PuTTY utilities (except the new and slightly experimentalWindows pterm).(Not sure whether you want the 32-bit or the 64-bit version? Read theFAQ entry.)
In addition to Terminal-like windows and controls, Termius has a GUI for SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol), a secure method of sharing files between devices. So you can upload and download files via an SSH connection in Termius without needing to use command line!
Another Terminal emulator that works incredibly well as an SSH Mac client is ZOC Terminal. This is an emulator that is really great for staying organized when using and moving files around in SSH connections.
Macs have a built-in way to make SSH connections with Terminal. But plenty of other SSH clients exist for Mac as well, and they each have their own features that make them great ways to use SSH connections to remotely access other devices.
Alternative way is to use WinSCP, a GUI SFTP/SCP client. While you browse the remote site, you can anytime open SSH terminal to the same site using Open in PuTTY command.See Opening Session in PuTTY.
Another easier option if you're going to be pulling files left and right is to just use an SFTP client like WinSCP. Then you're not typing out 100 characters every time you want to pull something, just drag and drop.
If you don't have an SSH client program installed on your home computer yet, you may download a non-commercial free version by following the instructions below. With limited functionality, but sufficient in this case.
WS_FTP Professional is a SFTP provider that offers the easiest method to upload and download files. It is one of the best SFTP clients that provides an FTP transfer facility using encryption technology. This software is easy to use and helps you to reduce the administrative burden.
Tectia SSH is an enterprise SSH client/server software for secure high-speed file transfer and remote access. It is one of the best SFTP server for Linux which offers dedicated resources for continuous improvement, including compatibility, feature adds, and bug fixes.
VanDyke provides an easy-to-use, browser-based file transfer solution for staff, customers, and partners. It helps end-users to connect with VShell Enterprise Edition using HTTPS to upload and download files easily.
SSH is a protocol for secure remote access to a machine over untrusted networks. SSH is a replacement for Telnet, RSH and rlogin. SFTP verifies the identity of the client, and once a secured connection is established, the information can be exchanged.
In several cases below, the terms "Linux" and "BSD" (two Unix variations)are used interchangeably; please consult the individual vendor's literaturefor the exact list of platforms supported. Likewise, "Windows" generallycovers Microsoft's 32-bit operating systems from Windows 98 through Windows 7,but the exact list of supported operating systems should be obtained from theindividual client vendor.
Note: ISD recommends the use of a FTP SSH client such as FileZilla, or a FTP SSL client from IPSwitch such as WS_FTP LE.IPSwitch also offers two free, scriptable command-line clients,MOVEit Freely (FTP) andMOVEit Xfer (HTTPS)both of which support file integrity checking. Ipswitch also offers WS_FTP Professional, a Windows file transfer client with a robust feature set, which also supports file integrity checking.
Note: Two of the clients above, (OpenSSH for Windows & SSH Communications), are capableof uploading files using multiple independent threadswhich may send blocks of data non-sequentially. This mode is not supported by FTP SSH and should bedisabled using the "-R1" command-line option.
Tectia is a commercial implementation of the SSH-2 protocol, with some limited support for compatibility with the older (and deprecated) SSH-1 protocol. Binary distributions can be downloaded for evaluation (with a limited license that is valid for 30 days) from the SSH Communications Security web site:
The make install command installs Tectia in the /usr/local directory by default. Programs that are normally run by users (e.g., ssh) are installed in the bin subdirectory, programs run by sysadmins (e.g., sshd) in the sbin subdirectory, manpages in the man subdirectory, etc. Use the --prefix option to specify a different parent directory, such as /usr/local/tectia:
By default, Tectia uses the X SECURITY extension (if supported by your X installation) to control the level of display access granted to X clients through forwarded connections. The --without-x11-security option causes Tectia to treat all X clients as trusted, which grants full access to the display. Trusted X clients can use their display access to capture information from other clients, so you should carefully consider the ramifications of disabling the X SECURITY extension. 1e1e36bf2d
