ssh - How widely used?
Does anyone know if there are MS-Dos or Mac versions of the ssh client?
How much is ssh used?
I've not seen much discussion of it but poking around an ISP yielded this:
Ssh (Secure Shell) a program for logging into a remote
machine and for executing commands in a remote machine.
It is intended to replace rlogin and rsh, and provide
secure encrypted communications between two untrusted
hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbi-
trary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure
Usage: ssh [options] host [command]
-l user Log in using this user name.
-n Redirect input from /dev/null.
-a Disable authentication agent forwarding.
-x Disable X11 connection forwarding.
-i file Identity for RSA authentication (default: ~/.ssh/identity).
-t Tty; allocate a tty even if command is given.
-v Verbose; display verbose debugging messages.
-q Quiet; don't display any warning messages.
-f Fork into background after authentication.
-e char Set escape character; ``none'' = disable (default: ~).
-c cipher Select encryption algorithm: ``idea'' (default, secure),
``des'', ``3des'', ``tss'', ``arcfour'' (fast, suitable for
transfers), ``none'' (no encryption - for debugging only).
-p port Connect to this port. Server must be on the same port.
-L listen-port:host:port Forward local port to remote address
-R listen-port:host:port Forward remote port to local address
These cause ssh to listen for connections on a port, and
forward them to the other side by connecting to host:port.
-C Enable compression.
-o 'option' Process the option as if it was read from a configuration
Looks like a nice little implementation.
