Ive tried lots of different telnet/ssh clients, and I have two long-time favorites: Putty and Absolute Telnet. Putty, because its such a quick download that on someone elses machine i can run it without going through an install, and it runs ssh. But for my own machine, the only choice is Absolute Telnet. It stores my password, terminal appearance and connection settings so that its literally 2 seconds from clicking the icon to being logged in to my remote ssh accounts. Its incredibly customizeable, but not overwhelmingly so. I hardly ever pay for software (Im embarassed to say), but I like Absolute Telnet so much Ive paid for the full version and Im glad I did. Its important to note that this software is maintained by one guy, Brian Pence, who personally answers peoples questions on his online forum and answers email inquiries (hes answered a couple of mine, and always been really helpful). I gotta say, you hardly ever get this kind of commitment and personal touch in software anymore. –Ben Wheeler

Using X Forwarding on Windows

ByEvan Murphy, 4/17/2006. Revised byMike Vanier, 4/24/2006.

Most CS 11 students do their labs from the comfort and convenience of their own rooms. However, since most people are stuck running Windows, and the CS cluster machines run Linux, theres a problem. If you did your labs on the CS cluster computer, you would get a nice graphical interface to work with. But if you log in remotely to the CS cluster with (say) PuTTY, then all you get is a single terminal. Worse, you cant start up graphical programs, because the graphical interface software on Linux is different from that on Windows.

That being the case, you have these choices:

You can come in to the CS computer lab to do your assignments

You can grin and bear it, and work within one lousy terminal and a non-graphical editor.

You can configure your computer so that it can run Linux programs remotely that have a graphical interface.

This document will cover option 3. If you set this up correctly, you will be able to use all the programs that you would have used in the CS lab on your Windows computer. Youll also be able to run multiple programs on the CS cluster at the same time (e.g. a terminal and a text editor) and all of them will show up on your Windows computer. So working on your labs in your room wont be much different from working on them in the CS lab.

If your computer runs Linux already, you dont need this document — you just need to know this command:

where%is the terminal prompt. If your computer is a Mac, this document wont help, but I believe there is an X server that works on the Mac (anyone want to look into this?)

The Linux graphical windowing system is calledX11, also known as X Windows, or X for short. Note that X Windows has nothing whatsoever to do with Microsoft Windows. Nada. Zip. Zero. Forget I even mentioned it.

X forwarding is a feature of X where a graphical program runs on one computer, but the user interacts with it on another computer. If youve ever used VNC or Microsofts Remote Desktop, its conceptually like that, but it works on a program-by-program or window-by-window basis.

If both computers are running Linux, its pretty much transparent. However, if youre sitting in front of a Windows computer, its a little bit trickier — not much, though! All you need is an X server that runs on Windows, and an SSH client, both of which are freely available.

In X parlance, the client is the computer running the program, and the server is the computer youre sitting in front of. This might seem backwards: normally the server is the remote computer thats serving you.

Think of it this way: the X server is serving you, the human being, to the programs on the remote computer. The client, a program, makes requests of you through the X server by changing its graphical display, and you respond to it by clicking on it or typing into it.

Im going to explain how to do this with PuTTY, a free and very powerful SSH client for Windows. You canfind it here.

You dont need to install PuTTY; just put it in a convenient place and run it. You can leave it on your desktop, or put it in Program Files and create a shortcut to the program in your Start Menu. Or you can install it if you like.

You can get the standard X serverported for Windows; its called XMing. Actually finding the installer files is a pain, so here are some direct links:

Now, install both these packages. They have nice Windows installers, so this should be pretty straightforward. Make sure that you put both of them in the same directory (it will do this by default — be sure to say yes even though the directory already exists).

You should have a Start Menu item for XMing. Go ahead and start it. If youre using a firewall, itll ask you if you want to unblock it. You dont need to.

Look for the X icon in your system tray. Hover the mouse over it: it should say something like Xming server – 0:0. The last bit should be 0:0, but if its not, pay attention to that and use it below.

Im assuming youre currently using PuTTY. If not, theres some good documentation on thePuTTY website. Its also very easy to use, so you should be able to start using it without much trouble anyways.

First, open PuTTY. Then, put in your normal settings for connecting to the CS cluster: under host name, put

Then, on the left, click on the Connection/SSH/X11 sub-panel. Itll have a few options. Check Enable X11 Forwarding, and in the X display location, put localhost:0:0 in the box (unless you didnt have 0:0 in the section above: then use localhost:x:y, where x:y is whatever you saw on the icon). Leave the radio button on MIT-Magic-Cookie-1.

Now click back to the main Session panel on the left. Put a name (like CS + XWindows) in the text box in the middle right below Saved Sessions. Click the Save button. From now on, you can double click the connection in the list box when you want to connect to CS; you dont need to do these settings every time.

Press Open to start PuTTY. Put in your password or do whatever you do to authenticate. Now run the command xeyes &. You should get a big pair of googly-eyes that follows the cursor around. It works!

Its important to start the XMing serverbeforeyou try to start the graphical program you want to run. Otherwise, there wont be anything on your end to draw the windows.

You can put an ampersand (&) after any command to make it go to the background: i.e. emacs & will start emacs and let you continue to use the PuTTY terminal.

Any programs you start in this way will close (and lose your work!) if you close the PuTTY session. So dont do that.

If you need another terminal, instead of running another PuTTY session, try running xterm & in your current session. This will create a terminal using the CS clusters terminal program, and display the window on your computer.

You can run any program that youd start as if youre sitting in front of one of the terminals in the CS lab. Unfortunately, theyre not always installed on login.cs. You can SSH to another computer (trye.g.pacman.cs or pong.cs) if thats the case. Try mozilla-firefox &, for example.NOTE:In general, you shouldnt be running graphical applications on login.cs anyway, because they often use a lot more computing power than their non-graphical counterparts, andlogin.cs is not an appropriate computer on which to run computationally-intensive programs.Please keep this in mind.

Very graphics-heavy programs (like, ahem, mozilla-firefox) may be somewhat slow. Be patient if youre on a slow connection; everything will work eventually. Terminals and editors should be reasonably fast, and thats all you need for most CS 11 tracks.

Free Putty Alternative For Windows Kitty Free Telnet SSH Client

which comes with several improvements in functionality. Both Kitty and Putty are Telnet/SSH clients, but with several differences. For starters Kitty is portable, but it can also be installed, installer version is also available. Next to having all the same features that Putty has, Kitty also brings things like session filtering, shortcuts for pre-defined commands, automatic logon scripts and more.

Layout of the interface of thisPutty alternativeis pretty much the same to that of Putty, with the exception that room has been made for all the additional features that were mentioned in the introduction. Various settings for changing Telnet and SSH connections are available in the left sidebar, in the Category sidebar. From there you can change a whole heap of connection settings like proxy config, telnet/SSH tweaks, even the interface can be changed (that would be the Window category).

Whatever setting it is that you would like to tweak, you just need to select it from the left sidebar. Everything that can be tweaked for that setting will open up on the right. The only other thing that youre gonna see are the 4 buttons for starting setup connection and quitting the application.

Key features of this Putty Alternative are:

Free and simple to configure: all the settings available right away

Supports Telnet, SSH, Raw, Serial, Cygterm and Rlogin connections

Allows you to save and filter sessions: so theyre more easier to find

Proxies: supports Socks 4, Socks 5, HTTP, Telnet and Local proxy setup

Customizable interface of both the main app and the telnet window

Logging: it can log all the activities during connections

Comes in both portable and installable versions

Works with all versions of Windows: starting with Windows XP

Also check outRemote Desktop Connection Manager.

Theres hundreds of different settings and tweaks that this free Putty alternative has, which you will have to discover on your own, because it would take to long to mention them all here. One thing that Putty has but Kitty doesnt is cross platform compatibility. Kitty is only available for Windows.

Everything thats important for setting up the connection can be accessed by clicking on the Session option from the Category list on the left.

Were just gonna stick with the basics, type in the host name in the Host Name input field, port number and down below select the type of connection, Telnet, SSH, etc. Of course for changing additional settings like Proxy or SSH connection specific settings you will have to select that option from the left sidebar.

When youre done setting up everything, click on Start from the bottom left group of buttons (the ones underneath the Category list), will start the connection. The usual telnet window will come up where you can start typing in commands.

Kitty comes with a lot if interesting features. If you like using Putty, but you feel like its missing something, then have a look at this free Putty alternative for Windows. It just might have what you need. Completely free.

Good info, but with Windows (7 at least) OpenSSH for windows client Ignores private keys for authentication becuase the Linux file permissions always read 0644 whatever you do!!

Annoying if you know a soloution, except using Cygwin please post.

PS. and yes I tried the windows ACL & chmod ports, they dont affect what the binary sees.




Permissions 0644 for C:/users/User/desktop/openssh-id_rsa are too open.

It is recommended that your private key files are NOT accessible by others.

OK I found a soloution to my above problem, to use key auth command line ssh on windows 7:

cd c:\program files\cwrsync\bin

accept the default location, the pretend root / is the Program Files\ICW folder, so then you can use this command perfectly even from a normal Windows CMD prompt and it works!:

C:\Program File\ICW\binssh -i /.ssh/id_rsa[emailprotected]uptime

and it works omg sweet. Thats OpenSSH_5.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011

My bad I copied the instructions, theres one path error, this:

Is this secure. Would it result in virus attack.

Warning, the installation removes everything in PATH environment variable and replaces it with the path to the ssh cmd line client!!!

Hello, guys! How do you solve a problem with the attempt to search / home / *? The program can not write or read the known_hosts file, as does not refer to C: \ Users \ MyCoolUser \ .ssh, and on /home/MyCoolUser/.ssh(. Tell me, please , because the password is 37 characters constantly do not want to enter .

I consider putty and ssh save to use for myself.

Of course it is up to you to decide or investigate.

You can read the openssh sourcecode, but I think putty does not offer that option.

Just need a confirmation i need to run commands on a remote windows system from an other windows system, can you let me know how i can achive this using open ssh

It doesnt work with newer alg implementations, so new type of servers with stronger kex will not work

Top 10 Best SSH Clients for Windows Mac Linux

A cryptographic network protocol which is used for secure data communication, executing remote commands, secure data communication and many other secure network services carried out between two computers that are connected is referred to as Secure Shell (SSH). An SSH client is a software which utilizes the SSH protocol for connecting to another computer for file transfers and terminal access. There are usually separate SSHs for different operating systems. However the availability of a lot of SSH clients may confuse you to select the best option for it. In order to pull you out of this confusion, we have brought to you top 10 SSH clients for Windows / Mac / Linux.

It is undoubtedly the most popular SSH client for Windows and Linux platforms for it is extremely easy to use, can even be used as a portable tool and allows saving of profiles.PuTTY is free and can perform telnet, TCP and rlogin. It comes with a support for secure copy program (SCP).

Private Shell comes with an amazing set of features like data base connection (MySQL, DB, Oracle), terminal connection, email server connection, SOCKS5 proxy and many more. It is an extremely user-friendly GUI and is available only for Windows.

Shuttle provides Mac with quick shortcuts to all the SSH servers and stays on the menu bar, offering a very simple menu. The user can save settings in DropBox by synchronising across multiple systems.

It is an advanced terminal for Windows which is technically an alternative of PuTTY. It comes with an X11 server and provides many networking tools and tabbed SSH. It has all the essential UNIX commands in a single portable executable file.

ZOC is a terrific SSH/telnet client for Windows and Mac OS featuring a number of emulations, accessibility to mainframes and hosts via secure shell, modem, serial cable, telnet etc. it comes with tabbed sessions, address books with colour-coded hosts, script with over 200 commands.

Installing the SSH Client v

Installing the SSH Client v3.1 for Microsoft Windows

Many people use the Telnet program (e.g.: QVT/Term) to connect to a remote machine, During the Telnet session, a lot of information passes between the PC and the remote machine, including your password, the contents of your email messages and basically anything that can be viewed on the screen or typed in at the keyboard. This information could potentially be read by hackers on your network using specialized tools. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is also vulnerable to hackers. For this reason, Telnet and FTP programs are not considered secure.

There are several secure alternatives to Telnet and FTP. One alternative is the SSH Secure Shell for Workstations package, by SSH Communications. It has 2 components: the Shell Client (a secure replacement for Telnet) and the File Transfer Client (a secure replacement for FTP). These programs encrypt all data passing between the PC and the remote machine, including passwords. The SSH package has become the de facto standard for secure logins.

The SSH package runs under Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000 and XP. The SSH package requires about 4 megabytes of disk space, although 11 megabytes of disk space are needed for the installation.

1. Before installing the SSH package, exit from all other programs.

2. SSH can be downloaded from sure to remember the subdirectory on your hard-drive to which you are saving it.

3. Click theStartbutton and selectRun…

4. In theOpen: box, typec:\path\ssh31win.exe

– wherepathis the location of the executable installation program. Use theBrowsebutton if you need to. ClickOKto continue.

5. TheSSH InstallShield Wizardwill start. ClickNext.

6. The SSH License Agreement screen will come up. If you accept these terms, clickYes.

7. TheInstallShield Wizardwill now prompt you to select the installation folder. If necessary, use the browse button to select the correct folder. ClickNext.

8. TheInstallShield Wizardwill now prompt you for a Program Folder into which it will install the SSH program icons. ClickNextto accept the default.

9. TheInstallShield Wizardallows you to select which components to install. To install all components (recommended), clickNext.

10. TheInstallShield Wizardwill now install SSH into the folder you selected.

11. ClickFinishto complete the installation.

1. After the installation, you will find two new icons on your desktop: one for SSH Secure Shell Client and one for SSH Secure File Transfer Client.

To start one of these programs, double-click the appropriate icon on the desktop. The program will open. Now, click theQuick Connectbutton on the tool bar in the program window. TheConnect to Remote Hostwindow will appear.

2. Type in a host name (for and your ITS user name. Do not change the Port Number or Authentication Method. ClickConnect.

3.The first time you connect to a new host,you will receive aHost Identificationmessage informing you that an encryption key for this remote machine is being created. ClickYesto accept this key and continue.

4. You are now prompted for your ITS password. Enter it and clickOK. You are now able to use the programs.

5. (Optional) TheAdd Profileswindow will appear in the top right corner. Type a name for this profile. (It is a good idea to name the profile something like UH unix 2 Terminal or UH unix 2 File Transfer.) ClickAdd the Current Connection to Profiles.

You have now saved your choice of remote host (e.g.: and your UH Username (e.g.: joesmith) as a profile (perhaps named UH unix 2 Terminal).

From now on, when you start the program, you can click theProfilesbutton and select the profile you just created. All the configuration information will be recalled and you will then be prompted for your ITS password.

You can create many different profiles, each of which could have different combination of host name, user name, fonts, keyboard layouts, colors, etc.

Note:To make a secure connection using SSH, you must connect to a machine running the SSH server, such as If you try to use the SSH client to connect to a machine not running SSH server, you will not be able to make a secure connection. To make a non-secure connection, use Telnet or FTP instead.

Both the Shell Client and the File Transfer Client use host profiles. These instructions also apply to both programs. You go through the same steps for each: connecting to the remote host, creating a profile with a host name and a user name, save the profile, etc.

If you followed the steps above using the Shell Client and entered your ITS password, you should now be logged into your uhunix account. The Shell Client is very similar to other Telnet programs in most respects.

If someone mails you the URL to a web-site, just click on the text of that URL and SSH will automatically open a web-browser to that site.

This version of the SSH Secure Shell Client does allow you to print to a locally attached printer from Pine. (Earlier versions did not allow this.)

When you finish using your session, log out as you normally would (by typinglogout) and close the Shell Client.

The SSH Secure File Transfer program is a good replacement for FTP. It allows you to transfer files between your local machine and the remote machine quickly, easily and securely. The graphical user interface is very similar to the Windows Explorer; you can literally cut files and folders from your PC and paste to the remote machine. You can also open a file (like a MS-Word document) on a remote machine by simple clicking on it. (You do not have to download it to work with it.)

How to start SSH Secure File Transfer

To start the SSH Secure File Transfer program, double click on the File Transfer Client icon.

To create a host profile for the File Transfer Client, follow the same steps outlined above inStarting the Programs.

Using the SSH Secure File Transfer Client

After you open the File Transfer Client and login to the remote machine, you will see a familiar graphical user interface, very similar to the Microsoft Windows Explorer. This window shows the files and folders on the remote machine. (The left pane has folders and the right pane has files.) In most ways, you can use it like the Windows Explorer: to delete, copy or rename files and foldres on the remote machine.

The File Transfer Client window has a toolbar with several buttons. If you are not certain what a button does, move the mouse over the button for a few seconds and a short desctiption of the button will appear. Two important buttons are the Upload button and a Download button. (The up arrow and down arrow pictured below.)

To upload a file from the PC to the remote machine, click theUploadbutton. (The up arrow on the toolbar.) A new window containing the PCs files will appear. Select a local file (or folder of files) you want to upload and click the button labeledUpload. The local file is uploaded to the folder on the remote machine. This method can be used to transfer folders as well as individual files.

To download a file from the remote machine to the PC, select a file on the remote machine and click theDownloadbutton. (The down arrow on the toolbar.) A new window containing the PCs directories will appear. Select the local directory to which you want the file(s) downloaded and then click the button labeledDownload. The remote file is downloaded to the folder you selected on the PC. This method can be used to transfer folders as well as individual files.

Important note:The program attempts to automatically detect whether the files should be transferred asASCIIor asBinary. When in doubt, the program transfers files asASCII. If you want to force the program to transfer a file as eitherASCII, click theASCIIbutton on the toolbar. (The toolbar is pictured above.) If you want to force the program to transfer a file asBinary, click the Binary button on the toolbar (labeled01010). If you want the program to automatically determine whether the file should be transferred as ASCII or Binary, click theAUTObutton on the toolbar.

You can also copy files and folders directly between the File Transfer Client and Windows Explorer , just as though you were copying between two folders on the same machine. You can even use the familiar drag and drop operations from the Windows Explorer to select and copy multiple files and folders.

There are a few small differences between the SSH File Transfer Client and the Windows Explorer:

On the remote machine, you can only delete empty folders, not folders that still contain files. Delete or move the files first.

In Windows, you can paste the same file to a folder several times (and get new files name like Copy of Resume.doc.) With the File Transfer Client, file names are not changed during the paste operation on the remote machine. Be careful not to over-write a file you want to keep.

To end your file transfer session and disconnect from the remote machine, click the

button in the File Transfer Client toolbar. (An icon of a PC with a slash through it.) Then close the File Transfer Client program.

Note:The Shell Client and the File Transfer Client are very tightly integrated programs. You can open the File Transfer Client from within the Shell Client and vice versa by clicking the appropriate buttons on the toolbar (which look like the icons on the desktop).

The SSH Security Shell can be uninstalled using theAdd / Remove Programscontrol panel. Select:Start–Settings –Control Panel–Add/Remove Programs. SelectSSH Secure Shelland clickChange / Remove. Then selectRemoveand clickNext. SSH is now removed from your machine. Restart your PC to continue.

SSH has two very useful help resources. The first is the help program that comes with the SSH package. The second is the SSH world wide web site found at:

How to SSH from Windows 10

This quick guide will show you how to enable SSH on your Windows 10 device so that you can connect to remote servers via the Command Prompt.

Start out by visiting the OpenSSH for Windowsdownload page(link opens in a new tab/window). The current version of OpenSSH for Windows is

so look for the section titled

. If theres a newer version, download that one. The steps to install it will almost certainly be nearly identical.

if the idea of running an SSH server does appeal to you, I would still strongly suggest you do not install it at this time and research it a bit first. You can always come back and install the Server using this same installation file.

Microsoft quietly snuck an ssh client and server into latest Windows 10 update

Sign up or login to join the discussions!

Peter Bright-Dec 14, 2017 5:38 pm UTC

In 2015, Microsoftannouncedits intent to bring OpenSSH, the widely used implementation of the secure shell (ssh) protocol used for remote system access and administration throughout the UNIX world, natively to Windows. Without too many people noticing, it turns out that the company has now done this. The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update adds a couple of optional features, with both client and server now available for installation (viaServe The Home).

Add the feature from the Optional Features settings page and, well… I think it works, but Im not entirely sure because I cant make it work. It cant use my RSA keyMicrosofts issues list on GitHub says thatonly ed25519 keys are supported at presentbut my ed25519 key isnt working either. I have seen people successfully use it with password authentication, but I dont have a password-authenticated server to actually test with right now. Both my keys work fine fromWindows Subsystem for Linuxssh, so Im confident that theyre fine; the native Win32 program just doesnt like them for reasons that arent at all obvious at this time.

Update: I rebooted both ends for unrelated reasons, and now the ed25519 key is working. I have no idea what changed.

Im sure that eventually the wrinkles will be fixed. This is a beta and its not installed by default, so hiccups arent a huge surprise. But its another little sign that Microsoft is continuing to embrace the wider world beyond Windows. I dont expect that ssh will become the main tool for administration of Windows machines any time soonthough with the ssh server and PowerShell, even that isnt impossible to imaginebut when this works, its going to make connecting to and using other systems from Windows that bit more convenient.

For now, though, Im going to stick with PuTTY, because PuTTY actually works.

10 best SSH Clients for Windows: free alternatives to PuTTY

10 best SSH Clients for Windows: free alternatives to PuTTY

PuTTY is great and is one the most common free Windows SSH clients. That said, PuTTY looks pretty pedestrian and one of the biggest missing features is the inability to open sessions in tabs. Some of the PuTTY alternatives listed below not only allow tabs but also combine other protocols such as FTP, SFTP, and more into one single tool, which can be handy for a home server user or server administrator. So let us have a brief look at some best Windows SSH client options.

MobaXterm is a single Windows application that provides a ton of functions for programmers, webmasters, IT administrators, and anybody is looking to manage system remotely.

Support for several protocols (SSH, X11, RDP, VNC, FTP, MOSH, )

Brings Unix commands to Windows (bash, ls, cat, sed, grep, awk, rsync, )

Embedded X Server and X11-Forwarding

It can be extended further with plugins. The thing I like about MobaXterm is that no intrusive ads / prompts to upgrade are displayed even on the free Home edition. The paid Professional version brings more features. [Read:How to SSH into Raspberry Pi for remote administration?]

SmarTTY is also one of the best SSH clients for Windows. It is my second favorite after MobaXterm and a solid PuTTY replacement. And best of all, it is free to use.

SmarTTY combines several awesome features into one application:

SmartTTY is regularly updated and stands out among programs like PuTTY.

Dameware SSH client is a free Windows SSH terminal emulator that allows multiple telnet and SSH connects from one easy-to-use console.

Dameware SSH clients features include:

Manage multiple sessions from one console with a tabbed interface

Save favorite sessions within the Windows file system

Access multiple sets of saved credentials for easy log-in to different devices

Connect to computers and devices using telnet, SSH1, and SSH2 protocols

Dameware SSH client does not stand out from some of the other best SSH clients but it is comparable to them. On the free version it does show an ad prompting you to upgrade to their paid service. If you like the interface then definitely do give it a try.

mRemoteNG, a fork of mRemote, is an open source, tabbed remote connections manager that combines multiple protocols into one application. Like some of the other best Windows SSH clients listed above, it also allows tabbed interface.

mRemoteNG supports the following protocols:

It is completely free to use and worth a try, especially if you prefer open-source applications.

The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction

Introduction to the Command Line (Second Edition): The Fat Free Guide to Unix and Linux Commands

SSH Mastery: OpenSSH, PuTTY, Tunnels and Keys

Terminals is a secure, multi tab terminal services/remote desktop client. It is offers several features and competes with some of the paid or closed source SSH Windows clients listed above.

Open terminal in full screen, switch between full screen mode

Networking tools: Ping, Tracert, DNS tools, Wake on lan, Port scanner, Shares, etc.

Open custom application from Terminals window

Multi-protocol: Windows remote desktop (RDP), VNC, VMRC, SSH, Telnet, and more

Terminals definitely has a lot of tools and features compared to some of the other SSH client software listed above. The full list of features and screenshots are available onTerminals website.

If for whatever reason you prefer not to use a separate software for SSH remote administration, then FireSSH addon forFirefoxandChromecan be a great alternative. A great example is when you are on a system that you do not have administrative privileges. While portable SSH clients could work on such Windows PCs, FireSSH extension is platform independent.

FireSSH is an extension written in Javascript and allows you to connect to remote SSH server through your browser. If your browser allows tabbed browsing then you can open SSH sessions in separate tabs.

The above list of best SSH software for Windows is not by any means exhaustive. There are other good SSH clients such as XShell (paid), Bitvise SSH Client (free for individual use), and TeraTerm (Free) that may be comparable. Also, please remember that the above list is focussed towards home server or media center users for basic administrative tasks and not business environments. Some of theAndroid media playerscan even be administered using SSH with an SSH server app installed. As mentioned in the article, I have used and like PuTTY but I have moved on to MobaXterm and have been very happy. For many, this will be a matter of personal preference. But I hope that this list of best SSH clients summarizes a few options to choose from.

OpenShift Online uses the Secure Shell (SSH) network protocol to authenticate account credentials to the OpenShift Online servers for secure communication, and supports both RSA and DSA keys for SSH authentication.

OpenShift uses SSH for performing Git operations and to provide remote access to your application gear.

When theclient tools are installedand therhc setupcommand is initially run to configure the client tools, the setup wizard generates a new pair of SSH keys in the default.sshfolder of your home directory.

will only upload your public key if youve already installed Ruby andGit for Windows. Alternatively, you can usePuTTYto connect to your application with SSH.

As part of the initial configuration, you have the option of automatically uploading the public key to the remote server. Your account can have one or more public SSH keys associated with it, and you can access your account from any workstation that has the private SSH key on it.

Red Hat recommends that you use the interactive setup wizard to create and configure SSH keys so that your workstation can authenticate and communicate with the remote server. Run the interactive setup wizard with the

Oncerhc setupis run, you can log into your applications remotely from your computer, or connect and download the application source code via Git. If you have multiple computers, repeat therhc setupprocedure so that each computer has access to the application.

If you would prefer to manually create and upload an SSH key, you can follow thisguide. SSH keys can be uploaded using therhc sshkey addcommand or through the web console.

Once you have created an application and set up your SSH keys (either byrhc setupor manual upload), you can SSH into the remote server using therhc sshcommand.

Users do not have root privileges on their gears.

The secure shell access is quite powerful and it is possible for you to accidentally damage your application. Proceed with care and make sure you have a currentbackup snapshotof your application.

You should then connect to your applications primary gear:

********************************************************************* You are accessing a service that is for use only by authorized users. If you do not have authorization, discontinue use at once. Any use of the services is subject to the applicable terms of the agreement which can be found at: ********************************************************************* Welcome to OpenShift shell This shell will assist you in managing OpenShift applications. !!!

If worse comes to worst, destroy your application with rhc app delete and recreate it !!! IMPORTANT !!! IMPORTANT !!! IMPORTANT !!! Type help for more info.

Now that youre connected, you can use the OpenShift shell to explore and modify your application.

Once you have SSHed into your application, you can use manycommon Linux Commands.

In addition to Linux commands, the following commands are available to help control your OpenShift application and environment:

PuTTY is a popular free SSH client for Windows. This document shows how to install and configure PuTTY so that you can connect to your application with SSH on a Windows machine.

Using PuTTY is optional. If youve installed Ruby and Git for Windows as outlinedhere, you can use the

command to access the OpenShift shell. SeeConnecting to Your Applicationfor more details on the

Get the installer from thePuTTY download page.

Make sure you download the latest stable release under the headersBinariesand thenA Windows installer for everything except PuTTYtel. It should be named something likeputty-0.63-installer.exe.

After downloading the installer, double click on the icon to run it.

You are greeted by the Welcome dialog. Click theNextbutton to continue:

The wizard asks you to select a directory to install PuTTY. Use the default and click theNextbutton to continue.

The wizard prompts you for theStart Menu Foldername. Use the default and click theNextbutton to continue.

You can choose to create adesktop iconor aQuick Launch iconfor easier access to PuTTY. Its recommended that you keep the option forAssociate .PPK fileschecked. Click theNextbutton to continue.

PuTTY is ready to install. Click theInstallbutton to start the installation process.

Click theFinishbutton to exit the installer.

This section assumes thatrhc setupwas already run or that you have completed alternate steps to create an SSH key pair for use with OpenShift. We want to import that key for use with PuTTY.

If you have not runrhc setup, visit theGetting Startedpage and complete the Command Line setup steps before continuing.

Launch PuTTYgen, the PuTTY key manager. From the Start Menu typeputtyin the search box. A list of putty applications shows up. Click onPuTTYgen. On older versions of Windows navigate to the PuTTY folder and launch it from there.

Once PuTTYgen starts go to theConversionsmenu and select theImport keyitem.

Alternatively, you can use theGeneratebutton to create a new pair of keys. Just make sure to register any new public keys inyour openshift account setting page.

A file dialog should pop up. Navigate to the.sshdirectory in your user folderC:user name\.sshand select theid_rsakey that was generated for you byrhc setup.

PuTTYgen loads your key and displays it. Click theSave private keybutton in this dialog.

Another file dialog pops up prompting you for a location to save the key. Again navigate to the.sshdirectory in your user folderC:user name\.ssh. Name the key something you will remember and make sure you do not overwrite any files in this directory. Good names to use aredefault.ppkorid_rsa.ppk.

Youve imported your SSH key and may close the PuTTYgen application.

This section assumes youve already created an application on OpenShift and now want to configure PuTTY to easily connect to it with SSH.

If you selected the option to put an icon on the desktop or a button the start menu, launch PuTTY from there. Otherwise, click on the Start menu and in the search box type inputty. Select the PuTTY application to run. On older versions of windows you may need to navigate to thePuTTYdirectory in the Start Menu and launch it from there.

Now we need to get the SSH address of your application to enter into PuTTY. The easiest way to find the SSH address is find it in theapplications list page of the web consoleand click on your application to reach the details page. Once on the details page, look under theRemote Accesssection on the right. This section includes the ssh command and the address. In the next step copy this text,removingthesshcommand from the front of the string.

In theSessioncategory, under theHost Nameform, paste the text you copied from the previous step, remembering to remove thesshcommand from the begining of the string.

In theCategorytree, expand theConnectionand thenSSHcategories and selectAuth. Click on theBrowsebutton and navigate to the.sshdirectory in your user folderC:user name\.sshand select the.ppkfile you saved there.

In theCategorytree go back to theSessioncategory. In theSaved Sessionsform name your session. We recommend using the name of your application. Click theSavebutton and watch it pop up in the list.

Click theOpenbutton to connect to your application.

Whenever you wish to connect to your application, simply select your session in the list. Click on theLoadbutton and then click on theOpenbutton.

Since you speak of more than 10 hosts, I would recommend the

It has a multi-tabbed interface (as per your request)

It has a superb host directory capable of getting 100s of hosts organized (you can create your own tabs and folders there and tag hosts by importance and give them icons of different colors).

It is also available for Mac OS (in case you buy a fancy Mac Book,)

The more seriously you need an ssh client (beyond an occasional connection that you can do with Putty), the more, over time, you will appreciate the features of this program.

If you do not have PuTTY installed on your computer, download and install the freePuTTY SSH client.

When you launch PuTTY, the configuration window opens up. This is where you can set up your remote host connection.

If you have access to a Linux/Unix workstation, use that for the Host Name field. Otherwise, please see your local network administrator for a host that you can use.

Type the full host name into theHost Namefield.

This connection will eventually be used for displaying X windows.

In the left pane, expand theSSHtree by clicking the +.

Enter a name in theSaved Sessionsfield, and clickSave.

Double-click your new saved setting line or select it and clickLoadto connect to the remote server.

Use your new PuTTY configuration you set up above to get log into your remote shell account.

Run the following command to start the VNC server:

You may be prompted for a password. This can be anything and is not related to your login password.

The command will display a line similar to the following.

Take note of the number () following the colon (:). This will be the port number you will need in the SSH tunnel setup, and will be the number you will need to use to eventually terminate the server when you are finished using it.

If you were not prompted for a password and have already configured the VNC server to display a remote desktop, continue with thetunnel setup.

If you were prompted to set a password for the vncserver, it most likely means that this is the first time you have run the command. You will now need to terminate the VNC server and configure the desktop setting so you view a remote desktop environment rather than simple xterm windows. To terminate the server, use the number () you were given in the above command. Repace the number () in the following command to terminate the program.

Now, edit the xstartup file in your .vnc folder.

Substitute your favorite text editor for vi, if you wish.

Be sure you have the number () you were given in the above vncserver command.

Assuming you are currently running PuTTY from above, you already have your configuration loaded. If you do not, launch PuTTY and load your previously saved configuration by selecting the session name and clickingLoad.

To determine the destination port, use the number () you were given in the vncserver command above and add it to 5900. For example, if your server is running on :1, use the following.

where hostname is thehostnameis the same one from above.

Click the session name in the Saved Sessions pane.

At this point, you can click Open to start the SSH terminal. The tunnel will now be active as long as the terminal window stays running.

The next time you run PuTTY, you must open these saved settings by selecting the name in the Saves Sessions pane and clickingLoad, then clickingOpen, or you can simply double-click the session name to load and run the saved session.

If you dont have it, download VNC Viewer (part of the server package) from When you install it, choose only the VNC Viewer. You do not need to install the server.

You must have an open SSH window with an actively running tunnel for the following to function properly.

If you are not prompted for a password, the SSH tunnel is not working. Make sure your tunnel configuration is properly set up and that you are running your SSH session configured with an SSH tunnel to the correct port.

When you quit the VNC Viewer, the remote VNC server stays running. This means that you can reconnect to the same VNC server at a later time, and it will remain in the state that you left it (assuming the remote computer is not shut down).

It is a bad idea to leave VNC servers running indefinitely, as they do take up system resources. Please terminate your VNC servers when you no longer need the remote connection..

Recall the number () you were given in your vncserver command. Replace with that number in the following command to teminate the server.

You cannot terminate other users VNC servers.

In some cases, the system will not let you terminate your own VNC server. If you suspect there is still a VNC server running, use the unixpscommand to view the VNC servers running on the system. The first number in each line (although the numbers may wrap as shown) is the processor ID (PID) that you need in order to terminate the server.

$ ps -x grep Xvnc 1688 pts/0 S 0:00 Xvnc :1 -desktop X -httpd /usr/share/vnc/classes -auth /home/buff/.Xauthority -geometry 1280×960 -depth 8 -rfbwait 120000 -rfbauth /home/buff/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5901 -fp unix/:7100 1752 pts/0 S 0:00 Xvnc :2 -desktop X -httpd /usr/share/vnc/classes -auth /home/buff/.Xauthority -geometry 1280×960 -depth 8 -rfbwait 120000 -rfbauth /home/buff/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5902 -fp unix/:7100 1842 pts/0 S 0:00 Xvnc :3 -desktop X -httpd /usr/share/vnc/classes -auth /home/buff/.Xauthority -geometry 1280×960 -depth 8 -rfbwait 120000 -rfbauth /home/buff/.vnc/passwd -rfbport 5903 -fp unix/:7100 $ kill 1842 $ kill 1752

In this example, you can see that there are three servers running (perhaps you forgot about some old ones that were running). You can use the unixkillcommand to terminate them.

As an example, to kill off the servers running on :3 and :2 in this example, use the commands

In Windows how do I transfer files using an SSH or SFTP client?

To transfer files to or from a server usingSFTP, use anSSHor SFTP client. Following are two commonly used clients.

Open WinSCP. In the Host name field, enter the hostname of the server to which you are connecting (e.g.,

In the User name field, enter your username for the host you specified.

In the Password field, type the password associated with the username you entered in the previous step.

When the software connects to your host, a window should appear with your local computers directories on the left and the remote hosts directories on the right. To move a file from your computer to the server, drag it from the left pane to the desired location in the right pane. To move a file from the server to your computer, drag it from the right pane to the desired location in the left pane.

To open the PSFTP part of the PuTTY application suite, from the

With the PSFTP login window open, type

followed by the name of the host you are connecting to (e.g.,

At the login prompt, enter your username for the remote server.

At the password prompt, enter your password associated with the username you entered in the previous step.

Once logged into the server, you will see the following command-line prompt:

To move to a different directory, use thecdcommand. For example,cd documentswill place you in thedocumentsdirectory.

To display your current directory location, use thepwdcommand.

When exploring directories on your local computer, use the same commands, but addl(lowercase L) at the beginning (e.g.,lcd documents).

To display the contents of a directory on the server, enterdirorls. To display the contents of a directory located on your computer, you must run a local command using!. In this case, you would enter!dirto display the contents of the current directory on your computer.

For a list of more commands, you can enter

ZOC as a SSH Client:SSH (Secure Shell) is a secure protocol that encrypts and transports data over an unsecured network. Its main purpose is to establish an encrypted way of communication with a remote shell account. The ZOC SSH client is the software, which you can run on your local computer to connect to the remote server. Once connected, the ssh-client lets you enter commands and see the output of those commands running on the remote computer.(More about SSH…)

Based on industry reference implementation OpenSSH

Client supports latest encryptions like ED25519 SHA256, SHA2 or AES-256ctr

SSH Public key, keyboard interactive or password authentication

Dynamic port forwarding (client as a SOCKS proxy)

X11 forwarding (lets you run X-Windows applications from the remote session)

Static port forwarding (tunneling of connections to remote destinations)

Proxy support (client connects to server through http/socks4/socks5)

SSH Agent and putty-agent forwarding between client and server

DOWNLOADZOC for WindowsZOC SSH Features in Detail

ZOC is based on OpenSSH and supports the latest key exchange and encryption methods that the SSH protocol has to offer.

Unlike OpenSSH, this ssh client is wrapped in a modern tabbed user interface with a powerful host directory, industrial strength emulations and scripting.

Below is an overview and explanation of some core SSH features of ZOC Terminal. We also have a whitepaper offering a moretechnical description of SSH.Key Exchange

An especially difficult part of encrypted communication is the need to negotiate a shared secret (the key to use for encryption) over a public channel that could already be compromised.

The negotiation is performed through the so called Diffie-Hellman exchange or one of its many variants. ZOC supports all official diffie-hellman group exchanges, as well as the more modern ecdsa-sha2 and curve25519-sha256 protocols.

Authenticating describes the process, where the user presents proof of who he is and the server deciding, if the user should be allowed access. The SSH protocol describes various methods that can be used for authentication.

Of those, ZOC supports password authentication, pukey exchange and keyboard-interactive challenge. Public-key exchange comes in various flavors. ZOC understands RSA, DSA, ECDSA and ED25519 keys. Hardware (smart card) based key authentication is also possible.Encryption

Over time, the SSH protocol has seen a plethora of methods to be used to encrypt the communication (using shared secret was negotiated during the KEX phase as a cryptograhpic key). Some ciphers were phased out over time, especially after Edward Snowden revealed how powerful possible listeners like the NSA are, and new ones were introduced. ZOC supports the whole list, starting with aes256-ctr and going down to older ciphers like aes256-cbc or arcfour (these older ones may still be necessary to connect to older servers which have not been updated in a while).

An important part of the secure shell protocol is a feature calledport-forwarding. This feature allows the user to create a connection from the client computer to the server network, which can be used by other programs and where all the connection data is encrypted. This feature is sometimes calledtunneling.

Programs and protocols which do not use data encrpytion (e.g. ftp or rsh) can connect to the tunnels port on the client computer and the ssh client will transmit their data through the encrypted ssh connection to the final destination (and vice versa).

For example, a user can set up a port-forwarding (also called ssh-tunnel) on the client software, listening on the client port 5514 and forwarding traffic to the address of an older device on the remote network that only supports the unencrypted rsh protocol.

The user can then use a non-encrypting rsh client, connect it to localhost port 5514 and thus will get connected via the secure shell client to the rsh server on the remote network. A normal rsh client will not encrypt its data, but the ssh client will encrypt all traffic before sending it through the ssh tunnel to the host on the other side (and vice versa) , essentially creating an encrypted rsh connection.

The standard port-forwarding feature requires the client to set up the tunnel source port and destination before making the connection. This means that there is limited flexibility and that for each possible destination, a separate ssh tunnel needs to be set up.

This problem is addressed by secure shells dynamic port forwarding. With dynamic port forwarding, the client sets up a listening port (as with normal port fowarding), but when a software connects to the port, it can tell the client which host and port it wants to connect to. This is done in the same way that client software can request connections from SOCKS proxies.

The ssh client will then forward the connection request to the secure shell server which makes the connection to the destination host. This way, the ssh client could let an unencrypted ftp software access ftp servers on the remote network through an encrypted data channel.

In some environments, end user computers are not allowed to access the outside internet directly. In those cases, connection and data exchange is made by way of assh proxywhich handles the actual connection to the outside network (internet). There are various type of proxies, which mainly differ in how the ssh client requests a connection to the outside world. Most common types areSOCKS-4, SOCKS-5andHTTP.

When a user authenticates an SSH session using a public/private key pair, ZOC supports the SSH agent forwarding technique to provide the key for authentication in secondary ssh sessions (ssh connections to a third server, made from typing a ssh command in the remote shell in the initial connection). If all the servers allow authetication through this specific ssh key pair, it is not necessary to provide the passphrase again for secondary ssh connections.

X11 is a communication protocol which allows a remote computer to run programs with a graphical user interface on a remote computer (normally, the remote computer can only show text in a terminal client). SSH supports a way to tunnel this type of communication between ssh client and server, thus enabling the user to run an X11 command like xeyes on the remote shell and get the window for that displayed on the local computer.
