    ssh program any sugestions


    Does anybody know of a really good ssh program that I can run on a Linux box to connect to my webserver? I can go to tucows and such but if anybody has a favorite that works really well please let me know. I have one that is ok but if I type in a password it kicks me out.

    thanks,

    John,

    Personally, I just use the command line "ssh" client- What more do you really need, given that all you're doing is opening a remote console?

    I never get kicked out, it's fast, and I just write little shell scripts to open common connections quickly.

    That's me, though.

    That said, you might try out ktelnet, which is made for KDE. All this really does is open xterms with command line SSH consoles, but it does have the ability to save common connections and the like.

    you get kicked out if
    - you enter a wrong password (depends on setup how often you can try...)
    - the server is configured not to accept connections from your ip
    - you use ssh protocol v1 and the server only allows ssh v2 because of security reasons
    - the server is configured not to allow passwords at all (you must use public-key auth or something similar)

    i am using openssh (came with my distro). never had any trouble.

    try it. if the problem persists, it is probably not a problem of your client....

    I am not having a problem connecting to the server. I do that all the time. My problem is when I am having to enter passwords for an application on the server. When I tried to make a new cert.key for a new certification it asked me for a password with openssl and when I would enter the password it kicked me out. this is one example of what happens.

    sorry, then plz forget my last post. seems like there is something else completely wrong on your system.

    is it your own system? and do you login as root or "normal" user?

    You are probably not allowed to log in as root remotely, which makes perfect sense, and it's probably default for all distros... Try logging in using another user account and then su to root.

    O.K. I logged in as myself and tried to su root. When I went to enter the password it told me "Strange Packet Received, aborting SSH connection". Then it kills the program.

    Cool


    What SSH client are you using? It sounds like you have a problem with your client config.

    The best one I've found and tried so far is PuTTY. Works great on any Windows system >= 95, and fits on a floppy if needed.
    Linux is for those who hate Windows.
    FreeBSD is for those who love UNIX.

    Eric's Telnet98 is what I have been using. I found Putty late last week and it has been working great. Do you know if Putty is on Linux?

    PuTTY is strictly a Windows client. However, it will connect to virtually any SSH server.

    If you like PuTTY, you should look into WinSCP for file transfers. It adds a nice FTP-like GUI on top of PuTTY's SCP support.
