SSH Telnet Software
Secure Shell

What is SSH Telnet?

SSH encrypts all of your transactions between your home/business computer and your web hosted account(s).  This includes your password and login name.  Telnet and FTP software send your login name and password and files across your local network (if you have one) and the Internet without any encryption or protection.

This leaves your login password and login name vulnerable to those with malicious intent.  Such people actively use packet sniffers to search for such information.  Malicious packet sniffing software can be as close as someone in an office using this software to someone hundreds of miles away.

Note that the majority of packet sniffers are used with no malicious intent, but rather to examine network traffic (from measuring the network load to detecting and deflecting denial-of-service attacks).

Using SSH Telnet software means that packet sniffing software cannot determine the information you are sending or receiving such as your password, your user login id, order logs (that typically contain confidential CC info.), databases, etc., etc.

There may sometimes be a few more steps to setting up SSH Telnet software, but once setup is done, logging in and out is just like using Telnet and FTP software.

The following are listed in no particular order.  We don't make any guarantee the software will work on your system, nor have we tested all the software on our system.  In other words, it's a good idea to download a trial copy first, before purchasing any software.

Some SSH software will have problems operating while other SSH software is installed.  It's best to only install one SSH software at a time during evaluation.

Prices accurate as of 9/7/04, are for a single user license, and are in $USD.
If a choice is available, choose workstation and not server.

 MS Windows SSH Telnet - FREE Versions

Disadvantages of FREE versions:

  • FREE versions are not as polished and as a result they are typically more challenging to use.

  • FREE versions are also typically not updated very often.

  • FREE versions are also usually more command line based rather than sporting an easy to use Graphical User Interface.

  • Not all FREE versions have these mentioned limitations.  It pays to review all your options.
