What exactly do you mean?  What are you trying to accomplish here?

SSH is usually used as a command line interface to a Unix server.

What we have is a SBS 2003 with only 2 RDP connections allowed at one time. What I would like to do is access the server via telnet while the RDP users are still connected. How ever telnet is not secure and ssh is.

The 2 RDP connections are restricted to ADMINISTRATIVE use only.  They are not intended for any other purpose, and non-administrators cannot and should not access the SBS desktop under any circumstances.

Can you please explain what you are doing that you would need more than two active remote connections?

Because there is probably a better solution than what you are trying to do.

FYI, if you are just wanting to run a command on the SBS from a computer within the LAN or while connected via VPN, you can use PSEXEC to do that.

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx for more details.

This would essential be what an SSH session would accomplish.

Sorry that I missed the first ping.  I would ask that this question be PAQ'd accepting {http:#21849512} as the solution.  SSH questions continue to pop-up so there is value in having this be part of the PAQ.

Just as an aside, there are SSH servers which can be installed on a Windows Server (such as http://www.openssh.com/) but I don't recommend them because it seems as though the user is not accessing the server correctly in the first place.
