Looking for standalone SSH client and X server for windows


im looking for a standalone SSH client and xserver for windows.


somthing i can run from a USB drive and does not need installing on the PC in question.

i would like to be able to forward X to whatever machine im working on.
but most of the time i have no install rights on the machines,

(some of them allredy have putty but no x server )

the ssh client needs to support rsa/dsa key logins

idealy somthing like putty that does not need installing


anyone know of anything sutable?

something like putty that doesn't need installing? how about putty... i've never "installed" putty... does it have an installer at all?

as for X... i'd actually look at X/cygwin, no reason to look elsewhere really. you can install cygwin to a usb stick easily. http://www.dam.brown.edu/people/sezer/software/cygwin/ and that'll give you a native shell ssh client too.

quoting the portable cygwin site you linked to
Quote:
The scripts ``X.bat'' and ``uninstall.bat'' modify host's registry. They insert several keys in the CURRENT USER and LOCAL MACHINE sections of the registry. These keys are modified through the ``mount'' command of cygwin and are referred to by cygwin to find out which directories on the Windows directory structure are going to be mapped to /bin, /lib and /. If cygwin is already installed on the host, "X.bat" will save these entries before changing them. The modified entries are later restored when you are done using your portable cygwin and run the "uninstall.bat" script.

nrrrg. yeah that'll do it. i really doubt there's any X server that'll do that... maybe vnc could be an option instead?

For Windows, there is a version of PuTTy optimised for flash drives that doesn't leave a trace on the host machine/device.

For linux, I guess konqueror or something? I think there's a Putty for Linux.

xming and putty are looking to be the best solution

Putty is allready installed so isnt a problem...
xming seems to work (opens an X display) but as yet i cant get it to use the ssh link as windows has firewalled it.. and i cant allow it as i dont have enough rights.

looks like i will have to talk the IT guys into letting me run it.
(they say that they will consider most software requests and being free is an advantage)

and i can make sure that i have a good academic reason to run it....

as for a livecd/usb there is provision in the rules that forbids them

(you must use the operating system preinstalled on the hard drive)


i dont need anything for linux...
all the linuxes here are allready running an X server, and have vanilla ssh insalled

this is so that i can acsess the linux servers from the computer rooms
(and acsess the comp in my room though i wont be telling the IT guys that)
