    Linux secure shell

    Hi,

    My server is conigured with SSH - so that people can't login via telnet for security reasons.

    If I want to login to my server from different locations, is there a linux program that someone can recommend to do this?

    I'd like a program that runs on my linux server and thus can be accessed from anywhere, without having to download and install Secure CRT for example.

    I thought webmin does this - maybe I've configured it wrong - but it doesn't login for me.

    Anyway the GUI for webmin is awful and I was hoping there may be something better out there???

    Many thanks,

    Jason

    Well, you can always use a program like PuTTY to log in to your computer from afar. That's what I use. It supports SSH, telnet and a few other protocols I believe.

    And if you want to use the Secure FTP features of your SSH server you might want to take a look and WinSCP at:

    Then you no longer have to use the insecure FTP protocol. Instead, you can use SFTP which is encrypted and secure.

    I hope this helps.
