PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.
Bitvise SSH Client is an SSH and SFTP client for Windows. It is developed and supported professionally by Bitvise. The SSH Client is robust, easy to install, easy to use, and supports all features supported by PuTTY, as well as the following:
Bitvise SSH Server is an SSH, SFTP and SCP server for Windows. It is robust, easy to install, easy to use, and works well with a variety of SSH clients, including Bitvise SSH Client, OpenSSH, and PuTTY. The SSH Server is developed and supported professionally by Bitvise.
SSH Tunnel Manager is a macOS application to manage your SSH tunnels. If you don't know what that is, quite honestly, maybe you don't need SSH Tunnel Manager, but if you appreciate the power of connecting together two networks using the SSH protocol, then STM is for you.
One of the typical scenarios where sshtunnel is helpful is depicted in thefigure below. User may need to connect a port of a remote server (i.e. 8080)where only SSH port (usually port 22) is reachable.

Once you enter the password, you can use the Royal TSX in a Terminal-like interfaceRoyal TSX is available for free but while using the software under the shareware model, you will be limited to 10 connections and only a single document per application.Download here7. HyperHyper is a gorgeous-looking command line interface (CLI) which offers uniformly appealing interface across all major operating systems for desktops such as Windows, Mac, and Linux. Being a CLI, it works exactly like Terminal and you can execute the same commands to call a server via SSH. As per the official website, Hyper is built around open web standards and is designed to prioritize speed and stability, but one cannot deny its attractive visuals and smooth animations are what make it a much more appealing PuTTY alternative than Terminal or iTerm2.

It is an xterm-compatible terminal emulator and stand-alone ssh client for Chrome. The app uses Native-Client to connect directly to ssh servers without the need for external proxies. It also includes an SFTP command-line tool. I love that the developers have created extensive documentation that can teach you everything about SSH and how the app works. If you are looking for a free SSH client for Mac, you should give it a chance.Download here9. Kitty TerminalKitty Terminal is a fast GPU-based terminal emulator that offloads rendering to the GPU for lower system load and buttery smooth scrolling. If you are using one of the newest MacBook Pro and Air that comes with better-integrated graphics or the 16-inch MacBook Pro that has dedicated graphics support, you will find the performance smoother than some of the other PuTTY for Mac alternatives that we have mentioned on this list. And the performance is not the only thing that it offers. Kitty Terminal is not light on features either.
Download hereBonus: SecureCRTWe end our list with an SSH client that works on all platforms including macOS, Windows, and Linux. So, if you are someone who works across platforms and needs to use a familiar app everywhere, this is the one for you. It provides a solid Terminal emulation and has built-in features that will save you time while working with it. It supports SSH and offers features such as advanced scripting, remote access, data tunneling, and more. Features like keyword highlight for errors, tabbed sessions, support for Xterm 24-bit color (True Color), and more, make it a rounded SSH tool for anyone who wants to replace PuTTY. I think this is a perfect solution for anyone who works across operating systems. That being said, it only offers a free trial, and you will have to grab the paid version if you want to use it long-term. The pricing starts at $99.Download here
SSH Tunnel Manager lets you easily create network \"tunnels\" in situations where you cannot connect to some device but have a way to connect to as server nearby using SSH. It uses the ssh command bundled with the system.
To transfer files to and from remote systems one must use eitheranonymous FTP or a secure protocol like SSH or SFTP. Only the lattersecure options will give a user with a center account remote access totheir normal UNIX file space. Normal FTP is insecure in that passwordinformation is sent over the net in the clear and is no longersupported for user accounts. Programs that do SSH and/or SFTP include:Windows -- WinSCP or FileZilla. We recommendWinSCP. If you use FileZilla, make sure to enable SFTP in the Site Manager as the defaultis regular FTP which will fail (see screenshot). Also installing rsync via Cygwin is the best option for command line users and faster than both WinSCP and FileZilla.Mac OS9 --MacSFTP, which is shareware butcan be downloaded and used for free by Harvard faculty/students fromthe Harvard IS website). Mac OSX --The command line 'rsync', 'scp' and 'sftp' utilities are standard. We suggest using rsync as it will copy over only what hasn't been copied already if it gets interrupted and you restart it. If you want a file transfer GUI for OSX,we suggest Fugu.Linux --The command line 'rsync', 'scp' and 'sftp' utilities are standard. The GNOME andKDE desktops also usually have GUI programs that can do SFTP. Please notethat for the gFTP tool, you need togo into File -> Options and on the SSH tab remove anything in the 'Extra Params'textfield and check 'Use SSH2 SFTP subsys'. Also go to the Network tab andmake the default protocol SSH2.GUI application like WinSCP or Fugu that use mouse click navigation will not be able to navigate to the /space or /homes or /cluster directories as theseare automount points and not user listable. The directories underneath themonly appear on explicit use. Therefore the only way to get to directories underneath them is to open the dialog in the application that lets you typein the full path by hand of where to navigate to. Here is an example of this using WinSCP.
Normally your SSH login will be text-only. You will not be ableto run graphical-based programs such as Freesurfer or Matlab in GUI-mode.Most SSH clients support tunneling of X Window traffic over thesecure SSH connection if your remote machine is running an Xserver. If your remote machine is a Linux box, it almost certainly isrunning an X server. If you give ssh the '-X' option when you connectto one of our SSH servers, the X window traffic of the GUI-basedprograms you run like Freesurfer will be tunneled and will run.
To use VNC for remote GUI connections you will need an ssh clientas discussed above and a vncviewer program. For Windows, I suggest youinstall UltraVNC. For OSX,there is Chicken of the VNC (whichis the best we have found so far but still quite buggy). MostLinux distributions come with VNC software standard.
The Partners firewall prevents your VNC viewer at home or on the roadfrom connecting directly to any VNC server you have running at theMartinos Center. To do VNC through the firewall, you will haveto use an ssh tunnel.
Once you have the VNC server running, you need to make another sshconnection from your home box, this time doing the tunneling neededfor VNC. How this is done depends on the ssh client. For Linux andOSX using the command line client, you would run:
For PuTTY, before making the connection to gate or entry, go intothe config options to make a tunnel from the the port590X on your home box to port 590X on your Martinos desktop box.On the initial connection dialog, look at the list in the left paneland select Tunnels. Go to Add new forwarded port. Enter\"590X\" as the Source Port. Enter\"desktop:590X\" as the Destination. Then clickthe Add button. Go back to the Session config and makethe connection to gate or entry.
In the future, you can skip the first ssh connectionall together if the VNC server you started is still running.Make the second connection with the tunneling and then ssh to yourdesktop and use 'vnccheck' to make sure the VNC server is stillrunning on the expected display number. If it is not alreadyrunning, and ONLY IF IT IS NOT, you can run:
If everything connects okay, you should be asked for the VNCpassword. If it does not, either the server is not running or thetunnel is not setup correctly (or at all -- I often forget to hit theAdd button in PuTTY when setting up the tunnel).
Another way to access the internal sites is to use our web proxyover an SSH tunnel. For this you need to tunnel port 8080 on yourremote (home) computer to port 80 on our proxy server proxy.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu. Linux and OSX users can do this by making the following sshconnection in a terminal:
Mac OS X includes a command-line SSH client as part of the operating system. To use it, goto Finder, and selext Go -> Utilities from the top menu. Then look for Terminal. Terminal can be used to get a local terminal window, and also supports SSH connections to remote servers.
SSH Client uses the Secure Shell protocol to encrypt the connection. It is the key element to providing a secure and flexible SSH tunnel connection to any remote resource. In addition, SSH Client and Connections Manager lets you execute any command to fix issues or monitor by providing access through the command line of the remote resource.
Developed by the popular vendor SolarWinds, Solar-PuTTY is a free SSH client. The application helps you to manage remote sessions professionally. You can control the tool from one console with a tabbed interface. 153554b96e
