couldn't do without!
From the page: Please take note of our Who uses it page, which list just some of the vendors who incorporate OpenSSH into their own products -- as a critically important security / access feature -- instead of writing their own SSH implementation or purchasing one from another vendor. This list specifically includes companies like Cisco, Juniper, Apple, Red Hat, and Novell; but probably includes almost all router, switch or unix-like operating system vendors. In the 10 years since the inception of the OpenSSH project, these companies have contributed not even a dime of thanks in support of the OpenSSH project (despite numerous requests).
Blinking text. Yuck.
A very good open-source and gratis (under BSD licence) implementation of the SSH/SFTP/SCP/etc. protocol. Allows one to securely log in to remote computers, transfer files from there, execute remote commands, tunnel connections and lots of other functionality. Tip, one can set up short-hand aliases like this in ~/.ssh/config :
From the page: "OpenSSH is a FREE version of the SSH protocol suite of network connectivity tools that increasing numbers of people on the Internet are coming to rely on. Many users of telnet, rlogin, ftp, and other such programs might not realize that their password is transmitted across the Internet unencrypted, but it is. OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other network-level attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides a myriad of secure tunneling capabilities, as well as a variety of authentication methods."
It's great, but DANG! I'm getting me a T-Shirt of that cool logo =P
The software that makes administering Unix, Linux, Darwin, Solaris and Hurd (among other (no, BSD is a variant of Unix, I didn't forget it)) easy and safe for anyone familiar with a shell environment.
It helps me use all my favorite text-mode software on my server from anywhere in the world.
great software :) access yours and others boxes safely, remotely and quickly. use putty or cygwin if you're a windoze user.
I think OpenSSH has finally displaced Emacs has my favorite piece of software.
OpenSSH is paranoid-licious. I use it to log into my box at home while fending off all the imaginary ghouls and ghosts out to get me. OpenSSH + Screen + vim, naim, mutt, etc = portable system.
Use it all the time; couldn't be a proper admin without it. SSH tunnels make possible half of my current programming projects. Long live OpenSSH!
Pretty useful to get live olympic broadcasts online from the UK...
Because telnet just doesn't cut it.
