Chapter 16. F-Secure SSH Client (Windows, Macintosh)
F-Secure Corporation, a distributor of commercial versions of SSH1 and SSH2 for Unix, also produces SSH clients for Windows and the Macintosh. [Section 1.5, "History of SSH"] The client product line, cleverly named F-Secure SSH Client, is a windowing, VT100-style terminal emulator that permits logins via both SSH protocols, SSH-1 and SSH-2. For Windows, we evaluated Version 4.1, which supports both protocols in a single product. Prior versions supported SSH-1 and SSH-2 in separate products. For Macintosh, we evaluated Versions 1.0 (SSH-1) and 2.0 (SSH-2), but at press time, they didn't run reliably on our system, so we won't cover them in this book. We experienced unexplained crashes that could have been due to our Macintosh configuration or to F-Secure. We had no such difficulties with the Windows client. F-Secure SSH Client has a fairly rich set of features. Under SSH-1, it supports remote logins, port forwarding, X forwarding, key pair generation, and a selection of terminal program features. For SSH-2 only, it includes secure file copying by scp2 and sftp2.
