"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If i'm not mistaken every version will support ssh, it's just more packages you have to install.  It depends on which flavor of linux.  Red hat is currently at 7.3, the linux shell is currently at 2.4.18

> .. secure socket layer
if you mean SSL, that's supported by any Linux, see http://www.openssl.org/

> .. linux shell is currently at 2.4.18
the Linux kernel is 2.4.18
shells are at various versions (tcsh 6.10.x, bash 2.03.x, zsh 3.1.x, ...)

Thanks! Can you tell me what shell/kernel/Linux distribution I have?

[re@sb re]$ uname -a
Linux sb 2.2.12-20smp #1 SMP Mon Sep 27 10:34:45 EDT 1999 i686 unknown

kernel is 2.2.12 with SMP support (probably)

shell is bash in most cases, check with
  echo $SHELL

I don't know of a secure way to identify the distribution, but check files in /etc
   if you have rc.config it's most likely SuSE
   if there is a xinetd directory, most likely RedHat
   see /etc/issue
