any ssh guis?


im looking for a gui for a co worker so she can login to the linux machine through ssh.
she knows nothing about linux and would be much easier to have a program than using the command line.

thanks

an ssh gui? all that ever consist of is a special console with some additional connection data. you'd still be using a command line... what are you actually after? maybe a VNC server instead?

nah, not vnc.. I wasn't sure if there was a gui or not for ssh where you could just click and drag or something. Make it easier for her.

like a ftp client, but ssh..

There is a windows ssh client from www.ssh.com that comes as a two applications. One is a simple console that gives you a command line and the other is a secure ftp app. It is probably the worlds easiest program to use. There are two windows, one shows your files, the other shows the servers files...drag and drop.

well that's not what ssh is for.. it's there to provide a shell...

you can have ftp gui's as it's purely intended to move file a to location b... but that's not going to help with ssh.. you can do anything really....

It's not a true ftp client, but a graphical frontend for scp'ing files back and forth. It's nice for situations like his where you want to allow inexperieced users to transfer files via ssh without them having to use the commandline and without you having to setup a true ftp server. There is also a freeware version (Winscp) if you're not at an educational institution, but I've never tried it.

Use the client from SSH.com. It works wonderful and it doesn't matter what the other guys said about not being a true console or whatever. This is for someone that wants to transfer files back and forth and the SSH client is just like an FTP client, but with security built in.

You can use PUTTY

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty

The client offered by ssh.com is not free for commercial use.

hm...just a thought - if you want a gui, you could use vnc to start an x session for her, and then tunnel vnc through it.
