Looking for a free and easy to install SSH Plugin to connect to my Unix/Linux server through a web browser.

I would like to connect to my unix machine through my website by clicking a link that loads a java applet (or something similar) so i can logon to my unix machine securely.  I have seen this work with mindterm but do not know how to do this, or what i need to download.  If someone could step me through this it would be great.  Thanks for your time.

You can do it via the Webpage. In your webpage just add a like to start up ssh client from a PC.
(If you you have a a lof of PCs, their ssh installation should be in the same place to make it to
work.

Add a buttom in your wabpage to run putty from your PC, not from the Webserver.
(sorry about the typo in my previous comment "like" should be "LINK")

The webpage in your previous post "ssh.html"

<body>
<h3>MindTerm SSH Java Client</h3>
<center>
<applet archive="/mindtermfull.jar" code=mindbright.application.MindTerm.class WIDTH='750' HEIGHT='475'>
<param name=te value="vt320"
<param name=bg value="blue"
<param name=fg value="white"

Thank the both of you again, i downloaded the applet from appgate.se, and have it so it loads on my website with the server's ip address already in the box.  I get an error but i understand it is because my server is blocking the connection, so i need to use a different ciper or something.  i am going to go ahead and accept the answer, because for the most part this is solved, besides my security issue.  if i have further troubles i will post a question concerning the blocked connection through my mindterm app.  It also might not work because its not digitally signed because i didnt want to pay $800--- but i will find that out later.  Thanks again-  DJ

Not later - if your browser uses proxy connection it will not pass, you need to issue CONNECT SERVER:22 HTTP/1.0 to proxy like putty does, not just connect() to null-routed address.
SSH2 has no cipher problems, SSH1 Had.
