SSH Secure Shell

SSH is used to get a secure terminal-connection to a login server. All Linux loginservers can be reached with SSH client software, not only on the standard port 22, but also on ports 80 and 443.

Recommended ssh client software:

  • Windows:
    • MobaXterm. From the MobaXterm website: "MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal for Windows with an X11 server, a tabbed SSH client and several other network tools for remote computing (VNC, RDP, telnet, rlogin). MobaXterm brings all the essential Unix commands to Windows desktop, in a single portable exe file which works out of the box." The support of OpenGL could also be a reason to start using MobaXterm. If you use it professionally, you should consider subscribing to MobaXterm Professional Edition. MobaXterm is available on the S-disc.
    • Mosh (mobile Shell) when roaming and intermittent connections.
    • PuTTY.
    • The OpenSSH client provided by Cygwin.
  • Linux: Your computer should have ssh installed by default. Otherwise, install the openssh-client package. Install Mosh (mobile Shell) when roaming or having intermittent connections.
  • OS X: the ssh client should be available on your Mac. For graphical/X11 functionality one can install XQuartz. Install Mosh (mobile Shell) when roaming or having intermittent connections.
