First you have to setup an SSH Server on the SBS2011.  This article is about one: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/tr-dojo/set-up-a-free-ssh-server-on-windows-7-with-freesshd/

Well, according to this, there is an exploit for freesshd version 1.2.6 which is the same version as the one available from http://www.freesshd.com/?ctt=download

Thank you.  This is for the Server side?
If yes, are they secure?

A server is for the server side yes. I checked Bitvise at Secunia, no current vulnerabilities for version 6.03. For OpenSSH, I found one.

>> Any free software which can be installed on SBS 2011?
What do you mean? Your question was how to connect using SSH to your SBS 2011 server, that question is answered, right?

Do you need additional software or is your question still about SSH related software?

It seems to me Gerwin has answered your questions other than Linux does not need a client like putty to connect to an ssh server, you can use the terminal.

ssh username@serveraddess -p nonStandardPort

Open in new window


I would also create public/private key pairs to make it more secure.  Just know putty requires you to convert the private key to ppk format.  The software is provided for you to convert the private key.
