Graphical SSH client for Centos/Ubuntu Unity and KDE desktops (SOLVED!!!)
Hi all -
First, let me apologise for that thread title.
I know it's been asked before, but I had not found answers to my need in those threads, because I'm dealing with huge logfiles, router/firewall configs, and so on in my SSH sessions.
Many of the threads simply say
"ssh is a command line tool, what did you expect. You need to learn BASH properly and you can do anything you want if you're just good enough"
Or someone is trying to figure out how to transfer files more easily than SCP, and end up using fish or other tools that leverage ssh in the background.
But that doesn't answer the question for those of us that use Linux on our laptops, and spend our days working at the command line of routers, switches, firewalls, and the like, many of which don't have GUIs or have badly written ones that require Internet Exploder and other M$Crap.
But I found this --
The famous and well-known PuTTY for Windows which many of us use in Winders (when forced to) is also availble as an RPM.
Simply install via apt-get, yum install, or whatever your favorite method is.
I know some of you may know about this RPM -
I'm not suggesting it's new.
But, with the huge number of threads on dozens of forums out there that DON"T tell people to just install the RPM for PuTTy,
maybe this thread can help counteract all those threads from
people saying "just learn bash better"
Bash is great if you're staying in Linux...
commandline for network appliances, not so much...
