SSH Secure Shell

SSH is used to get a secure terminal-connection to a login server. All C&CZ Unix loginservers use SSH-server software of OpenSSH or a version that comes with the OS. For the desktop C&CZ advises to use the free SSH client software PuTTY and WinSCP aan. Versions of this software can be found on the Install-disk. Of course they are also available on the C&CZ managed beheerde werkplek PC's (on the S: disk. On Unix this disk can be found as /vol/software/PuTTY).

A powerful and easy usable alternative is MobaXterm, which is available on the S-disc. 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.
