SSH (Secure Shell)

The SSH option allows you to manage secure telnet  access to your account.  Much of the functionality of telneting  is handled  through the File Manager option in the Control Panel.  However, there are  instances when telneting (outside the operation of the File Manager) is  required to get the job  done.

The only way to gain telnet access to your account is by using SSH secure  telnet software that must be loaded on your computer.  We use SSH because  the text (passwords  especially) is transmitted using secure encryption.  Without SSH, accessing telnet unsecurely runs the risk of hackers grabbing  your password and putting our network at risk for stolen data,  and damages  sites.

We do not provide a SSH program for your use. The recommended software  is Van Dyke Technologies' Secure CRT.  The website for this software  is:  http://www.vandyke.com/products/securecrt/index.html.  Secure CRT is available to download as a 30 day trial and then must be  purchased.

 International customers may use the Datafellows version at http://www.datafellows.com/download-purchase/

User looking for a free version can get putty at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty

The SSH Option allows you to upload the RSA (Rivest, Shamir, Adleman)  key generated on your computer by the SSH software to the server on which   your site resides.  Once completed, you will have secure telnet access  to the site.


SSH access to your account is setup by default  once you have generated your key and setup your SSH client just log into your account where you will be asked for your username and password once you have provided this information the server will store your key, and the next time you log in you will be asked for your user name and pass phrase that you had previously stored with your RSA key.
