ssh and delphi?

Hi everyone, i'm writing an application for both win32 (delphi) and Linux (kylix) platforms, this application will have to talk to its clients thru SSH.
So far i haven't found any component (VCL) or code snippet that can teach me how to implement SSH in delphi. i've read about SSH and and even have some libraries from openssh but nothing i can use.

any ideas?

thanks!

what you can try is take putty (a free SSH client) let your program start it (non-visual) and redirect its default input output to your program

you can get it here
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

since ssh is still in the buildup phase it will take some time before there will be serious development on the component side for Delphi i guess

haven't used it myself but there's a very detailed FAQ on the site
