Windows SSH

By shonson in News

Software

Quite a few Windows SSH clients are available, some of them free and other require the user to spend anywhere upto $100USD, recently I stumbled apon a free SSH client called PuTTY, which is all contained in a single .exe file and requires no installation, great for using at school. I still use SecureCRT at home, due to some features which I just couldn't live without. What SSH clients are people currently using, and what features do they have?

SCP? . . .

Do any Windows SSH clients have support for SCP (secure copy; required to upload files to SourceForge.net)?

Install cygwin on your system, then download ftp://ftp.ssh.com/pub/ssh/ssh-1.2.27.tar.gz and build it! scp has a tendency to emit these warnings:
setsockopt IPTOS_LOWDELAY: Invalid argument
setsockopt IPTOS_THROUGHPUT: Invalid argument
but it works just fine otherwise.

It took me 10 minutes to find putty. What "features" can an SSH client have? If it has SSH and scp it's complete. I don't think it's too terribly important whether you have ssh1 or ssh2. this is a non-topic.

F-Secure doesn't seem to give a hoot about their SSH client on any non-Unix platform. It doesn't work with NT past sp4 -- thankfully there are other free and commercial alternatives.

The Mac platform is a sorry state as the only one that works with SSH2 is (again) F-Secure's client. Their terminal emulation sucks (you can't even make the colors white on black!) so I ended up getting the US$20 dataComet (www.databeast.com) and tunnelling telnet.

F-Secure doesn't seem interested in supporting the Mac client or adding functionality like scp. They don't even bother answering the support request emails just lately. dataComet is very smart about sz and rz so scp isn't necessary. It's also the only Mac telnet client I've found that displays colors, fills and positioning in the expected way.

Under windows, there is nothing more useful than Putty. I've been using it for over a year now from school, etc. It's good to see that some people understand good software design. It's nice and compact, too. Under Debian, I just install ssh with dselect.. I don't need anything more than that. I've used SecureCRT a couple of times, and I really don't see why people should need to pay for such simple software. I guess this is the case with most programs in the Windows world, though. Either that, or you get those lovely little pop up windows and all of the other crap that comes along with shareware. It's interesting. If the enviroment is source secret, (windows, in this case) so is most of the software availible for it. PuTTY is good stuff, though.

Putty is good- The same author makes a dos based version of scp (secure copy program). Both programs will fit uncompressed onto a single floppy disk which makes them extremely convienient to carry around in a laptop bag or briefcase.
SecureCRT is ok - but it is kinda buggy in my experience. Sometimes when it starts up it just hangs connecting and must be forcibly killed on the WinNT machine I have at work. I have also tried F-SecureSSH. This program is a good alternative - it even supports color-xterm emulation. But it is expensive at $99US. There is a Macintosh version available as well. The only problem with this program is that v.2 only supports the SSH2 protocol - so it doesnt work with older versions of ssh or OpenSSH. If all the systems you access are running the latest server versions you will be ok.
On my Macintosh I use NiftyTelnetSSH. Its free (free-beer) and stable even if it is somewhat lacking in features. Another Mac option is BetterTelnetSSH - better telnet is GPL'd but the SSH version is not freely distributed by the author. I managed to find a SSH build somewhere, but I dont know where.

A very interesting discussion. I'm also interested in a free Mac SSH client that has file transfer. To me, one of the primary uses of SSH is to provide secure update access to a web site. FTP is the standard, but having the passwords go over the net in the clear sets my teeth on edge.

When discussion SSH clients, the main things I'd like to see addressed are:

  • Proprietary, freeware, or free software?
  • File transfer?
  • SSH 1 and SSH 2 protocols supported?
Look forward to seeing the answers!

SSH really needs to get out there more. Once you begin using it, it's just as easy as telnet, and the more SSH clients available, the more secure the internet becomes. Now SSH-FTP confuses me. I'm sure there's a way to securely transfer files, but is ther a standard way to do it in the same way that SSH is secure replacement for telnet?

If you're using a Unix-like system, scp (secure copy) comes with the OpenSSH package. Works just like cp; e.g.,you are on 'foo' and you want a file on 'bar': scp bar:/path/filename /path/filename. It's quite a bit slower than ftp, but the encryption overhead can't be avoided.

If all you really want to do is transfer files without sending your password in cleartext, then port-forwarded ftp may have a nicer interface, as well as faster performance. (Actually, not sure about that performance thing -- never saw too much of a hit with scp)

I use Putty on windows - it is generally very good and configurable, although there are a couple of user interface bugs.

I have met Simon Tatham (author of PuTTY) once - he works for ARM (or he did when I met him). Not much more that I remember though, I must have been drinking a lot.

I just want an easy way to use either secure copy (scp) which comes with PuTTY, or a truly secure FTP system. Is there any FTP client and server that can be set up to work over an encrypted link (at least for the login stage)?

Zmodem (none / 0) (#46)
by mattc on Sun Jun 04, 2000 at 03:53:13 PM EST

I haven't found any way to do encrypted FTP, but I've found one way to transfer files using Windows clients. You can use the "rz" and "sz" commands to send files through a ssh connection. What are rz and sz? Receive Zmodem and Send Zmodem! Yup, it will certainly bring back memories of the old BBSing days, but it works great unless you are sending very large files. Of course your client has to support the Zmodem protocol, I know SecureCRT does.. I'm giong to check out the other Windows clients at work tomorrow.

The lrzsz home page

Just make a SSH connection to your linux machine with SecureCRT, and at your shell prompt tyoe "rz" to upload files or "sz filename filename filename.." to download files from the linux box. SecureCRT detects the Zmodem initialization strings and does it's work automatically.

...ssh-win32, which is a highly unsupported but very functional port of the Unix SSH client to Win32. It may not be quite as flashy as PuTTY, which I use pretty frequently for my terminal needs, but it does support some of the SSH features that other clients don't: X tunneling and port forwarding being among the most useful and prominent.

This is the (now hard to find) software that's mentioned in the VNC documentation as being a good choice if you want to use a Windows VNC client over an SSH session. If you've been frustrated with the lack of a full feature set in the other free clients, you might want to give it a try.

I use SecureCRT from my permanente box, but when I have to logon remotely, I goto a page my site with the MindBright SSH and VNC cleints.

Obviously being a Java applet it runs on any platform and I don't have to download any client software, I find it comes into its own when I logon from Macs. I did use the PuTTY client for a while, but I don't like the way it stores some information in the registry. Especially if you're using one of the 5000 shared computers at college or something, you don't want any information lying around.

Remember SSH has some competition in the form of SRP, a patent free encryption protocol being developed at Stanford.

I've got it sitting on my website at http://www.mixdown.org/ssh.exe so as long as I've got a web browser and a win32 machine, I've got ssh. Nothing is better. :-)

That link is real, all it does is ask you if you want to download the file or run it. So far as I know there are no viruses or anything nasty, it's just the executable for putty. I make no guarantees though.

SecureCRT is the only way to go for connecting to SSH servers from NT. Van Dyke Technologies just entered the beta testing stages for SCRT 3.1, too. Ding!

I use putty. (none / 0) (#61)

I keep a copy of putty in my briefcase for doing things at the office when I am over at my drinking buddy's house or some other windows person's place. Putty is great. I like the fact that it does a color terminal. I also have it installed at the office so that someone can get into the servers from the reception computer in case I am somewhere without my Slackware laptop. Ah yes, the orginal remote access, the telephone and a person at the keyboard on the other end. Typically, I am running Linux on the desktop so I just use openssh at work or ssh V2 if I am at home (non-profit, ahem)
