SSH for linux?

I know its probably a dumb question but whats the best ssh for linux? I do not need to host a server I just need to be able to connect to my uni's server. On windows they use winspc to ssh in to the server but since I avoid using windows as much as possible I need to figure out how to do that on my linux based laptop.

On linux you just type: ssh username@server.com

(using your username and hostname of the remote server)

if you use securecrt -- there is a linux version that it is supported.
its about $150 for a 3 year license -- and worth every penny.

in this way -- you can create profiles in windows, mac, and linux and export across devices.

To transfer files use scp username@server:path/file localpath

Hi,

As others have pointed out, by default `ssh' is installed in all major distros. The `ssh' bits are part of the `openssh' RPM:

pablo@oreo:~
$ rpm -qf `which \ssh`
openssh-6.1p1-3.1.1.x86_64
 

btw, I would never pay for ssh-like bits.

Cheers,
-pablo

and of course from a shell, `man ssh' .. but a tutorial I think is always better than a man page for beginners.

Why kidding ? It is a great ssh client and you can run it in wine on linux

There's a linux port -- wine not required. I have it installed here, though I rarely use it.

I install it on my office system, because sometimes students want to be able to login to somewhere. Using "ssh server" will try to connect as me. Using "putty", they get to define who they are on the system they are connecting to.

Running PuTTY on Linux via WINE is just all kinds of wrong.

ssh user@ is the best answer for terminal.
If you don't want to use terminal/console, then take a look at VanDyke's SecureCRT. I'm not sure how well the *ix platforms work, but their Windows software is just unbelievably good. I've been using them myself since '99

What version of Linux are you running and with what Desktop?
Many of the file explorer applications in Linux support SSH, if you prefer a point-and-click interface to your remote files.
In Nautilus (for Gnome/Unity) choose Files->Connect to Server.

Uh, you just need to "ssh remoteuser@server.example.com" to connect as a different user... You can add it to ~/.ssh/config if you connect to certain servers a lot.

ZOC is a great program and worth every penny. Been using it since the OS/2 days.

I tend to use the built in Terminal.app on my Mac, but I do keep ZOC around for fancy emulations and such.

No, that's no good.

A student is in my office asking for help. So then I have to ask him what is his loginid to do what you suggest.

Using "putty", I just start the application, and the application asks the student to type in the loginid. It is easier to manage.

For my own logins, your method is fine, and that's what I use (editing ".ssh/config" and all). But for the student who drops in during office hours, and needs to connect to the department server, I find "putty" is convenient.

When using a Windows box, I install cygwin along with the necessary packages for ssh. It's free and works wonderfully.

Many ways to skin the cat. I've been using ZOC for 20 years ... Best emulation I've ever used - awesome when I dabble back in the BBS world.

That's the first thing Dennis Ritchie used to do "to get things done" when he got his first university position and they would hand him a Windows computer.

SecureCRT is the only app that is worth on linux/Mac if you do a lot of USB Console connections. Would definitely not use it for SSH, but Serial Console? I do not believe there's any other app that can come close...

I've used minicom for serial communication. Seemed to work well but I admit to not truly hacking around much. My Dragonfly BSD kernel hacker friend used it extensively though.

I also use minicom for my terminal-over-serial connections. I have to use it about five or six times a year, so I wouldn't consider myself an expert on doing such things.
