ssh program for ubuntu


Hi,

I have to use ssh connections at my job. Usually people who work with windows use programs like SecureCRT.

Do you know any good program to access to ssh using Ubuntu?

Thanks in advance

Every Linux distro comes with ssh client pre-installed. Try ssh --help or man ssh in terminal. You can install ssh server in ubuntu by doing:
Code:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
in terminal.

Hi rizwanrafique,

Many thanks. I'm using the ssh terminal server right now and it works ok. The thing is I'm looking for a more complete program, with more options, etc.

Regards

Hi AlucardZero,

For example I want to save a session to copy files via uuencode and it isn't allowed with the shell. With programs like securecrt for windows it is ok.

regards

Well ssh in Linux/Unix works slightly differently. There might be a tool that's more GUI centric but I'm not aware of it. You can use scp to copy a file remotely over ssh. Or you can use rsync to copy a whole tree. If you want to use remote shares you as if they were local directories you can use sshfs to mount them locally.

Take a look at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ssh-gui/
also gftp has a ssh option

hi rizwanrafique,

the problem here is that I do ssh tunnels so I should have to do many steps to copy a file using scp.

I was thinking about something like:
scp localhost -p 6001:source_path/file destination_local_path/file

but unfortunatelly it doesn't work.

many thanks

After you open a tunnel following command should work considering you opened a tunnel at localhost:9001 for your destination-host.

Code:
scp -P 9001 file-to-copy localhost:/path/on/destination/host
