SSH / Telnet Software

Telnet is an application layer protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a bidirectional interactive text-oriented communication facility using a virtual terminal connection. SSH was designed as a replacement for Telnet and for unsecured remote shell protocols. The term telnet is also used to refer to the software that implements the client part of the protocol. SSH provides a secure channel over an unsecured network in a client-server architecture, connecting an SSH client application with an SSH server.

After 30+ hours of research and trying different solutions I have found many solutions to each piece of this puzzle but can't quite get them to work together or figure out the best approach so I'm hoping you guys can help.

The goal: Use public IP from a remote server(Ubuntu) as a browser proxy. The kicker is that the server should pass all traffic through to a local machine which has a 4g modem internet connection to use its internet connection. We need to be able to assign fixed IP addresses/IP port combinations to these local modem/s to be used as undetectable browser proxies to make it appear that the browser client is logged in using the mobile internet connection.

I have seen multiple solutions to each part of this including the use of ssh tunnels, dynamic port forwarding/socks, remote port forwarding, squid proxy server/other proxy server software, iptables configs etc..

I have found this solution that I can get traffic to travel from anywhere to my local machine:

//1st terminal establishes connection/tunnel ssh -nN -R 8888:localhost:8889 -i "connection.pem" ubuntu@e-xx-xx-xx-xx.remote-server.com

//2nd terminal listens on port 8889 netcat -l -p 8889 //this command works and prints abc on the local machine echo "abc" | nc -v xx.xx.xx.xx(remote server ip) 8888

I have also successfully installed a squid proxy server in a docker container and used the following command to open socks connection with reverse forwarded port.

I have several linux systems. Normally I login on them with my account, and after I login i execute sudo -s, so I can get admin privileges.
Sometimes I need to edit some files or copy some files out of the linux systems and in the past I ofter used the winscp program.
Unfortunately when I login with winscp with my account I don't have admin privileges, and thus I am not able to open and edit needed files, I am not able to copy files out of the system. Can you tell me how to login with winscp with admin privileges

I want to automate the file transfer.
FTP Client : Reflection FTP Client
SFTP Server : Tectia SFTP Server.
I tried using similar to winscp scripts powershell but it didnt work.
Can someone help me providing the script which will work to transfer file to sftp server running script.
Authentication method is public key + password authentication and password must be encrypted.

My company has setup an Ubuntu 18.04 server, to exchange files with a client, via SFTP.  We need a high level of security.  We're trying to require authentication with SSH key pairs, AND the Linux OS username and password (not the SSH passphrase). We've got the key pairs working, but it doesn't ask for the password. I'm assuming we're just missing something in the sshd_config file. Hopefully we're not trying to do something that's not possible. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I had this question after viewing How to connect to multiple parallel SFTP using JSCH?.

Is it possible to have multiple SFTP connections for the same host,username and port??

Hi, when I finished installing OpenSSH, I got the following warning:

Permissions 0640 for '/etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key' are too open.

Could you please give me the command line to safely change and set the proper permissions for this folder and its files?

Server: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.5

Thanks

I am running a Centos 7 linux server, i am runnin open ssh server, and client. I did a recent test to see if the ssh is working correctly, and what i found out was i could only using my internal IP address to access my server from my workstation. I tried to use the public static ip and i get a timed out error. I checked my ports 21,22,  to make sure they are open through port forwarding through my wireless router. They check out to be open, I am using firewalld as a firewall, and i  did notice that my selinux gave me an message basically asking me do i want the sshd server access to a particular file. I am not sure if selinux is the issue. But i want to find out if it is a permission problem, or  selinux issue. The actual sshd server when checked on staus shows it is running fine. Please help

We have a Linux server and after it was scanned for any security vulnerabilities, we got one about "SSH Weak Algorithms Supported".  I tried to make a change to the ssh_config file under /etc/ssh/ to remove the support for any "arcfour" algorithm, but after another scan, it is still showing that this vulnerability exists.  Can anyone tell me exactly what I need to change?  This is my line in the ssh_config file:

 Ciphers aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr,aes128-cbc,3des-cbc

Thanks in advance!

I removed the public SSH key from a server I was managing. THen I generated a new key and overwrote the old one on my laptop. THen I added the key to the server. it added two keys.

I thought it would be best practice to remove the old key and put the new one in. It seems like my old key is still being added to the server. Am I overthinking this?

Does it really not matter and should you not bother with changing SSH keys? I was going to change them by the business quarter.

Hi guys

I'm trying to set up an SFTP server for our company to use. I have a Windows 2012 server and have started to go down the open ssh route etc.

Do you guys have any guides one could follow or recommendations you would make?

If people think Linux would be a better route, then I can go down that route too. I need something that will be stable and not lose/drop connectivity because of some sort of service that needs restarting all of the time etc.

And I have to do this within the next 3hrs:).


Thanks for helping

Would someone have an explanation for this?

Both times I have run this script.

vmkfstools -i "/vmfs/volumes/Date-2016/00 - DNS Server/00 - DNS Server.vmdk" -d thin "/vmfs/volumes/DES Lessons/00-DNS-Serve
r/00 - DNS Server.vmdk"

Open in new window


It gets to around 45%, and then jumps to 100%


Destination disk format: VMFS thin-provisioned
Cloning disk '/vmfs/volumes/Date-2016/00 - DNS Server/00 - DNS Server.vmdk'...
Clone: 100% done.

However, the actual size is 50GB
But the file transferred is only 16GB


00 - DNS Server.vmdk
16.53 GB
Sunday, May 20, 2018, 12:48:59 -0400

This is the actual size


00 - DNS Server.vmdk
50 GB
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 08:23:53 -0400

I have 7 VMs that need to be moved to a new drive, and this is causing some major slowing down issues.
Any ideas?

Also, if using the vmkfstools GUI is a better route to go, that would complete this without this issue.
Then please, tell me how to use the GUI, as I cannot find any information on using it.

Hello All;

I have a 1TB drive of which has 11 VMs on it.
Taking up about 95% of the space.
I purchased some 500GB driver, I am in the process of moving the VMs over.

What I have done.
#1:
Using the datastore, I chose the VMs and I "Moved" them.
It is going to take a few days to move the ones I selected over, about 426GB.

#2: I tried the OpenSSH
Just to move one of the VMs over that is 60GB, will take over 24-hours.

Code for the SSH

[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5b005dd5-2ce20e85-e704-001517fcd2e8] scp -r "00 - DNS Server" root@192.168.2.101:/vmfs/volumes/Date-2016/"00\\-\\DNS\\Server"

Open in new window


How can I make this go faster?
It is only going from one drive to another drive, on the same server.

Thanks

I have a Dell laptop (running Windows 10) where I'm hosting OpenSuSE Linux (Leap 42.3) in a virtual machine. Although I can ping the virtual machine, I haven't been able to connect to it using the SSH protocol. As far as I can tell, the secure shell demon is running on the Linux system. I've tried a couple of SSH Windows clients – specifically, SecureCRT and SecureFX. Additionally, I've tried running the SSH client from the Windows command prompt. I haven't seen any error messages. Instead, the connection simply times out.

Networking is not my forte, but I'm familiar with SSH. I've configured it on UNIX systems many times, but that was years ago. These days I'm doing so only on rare occasions. Consequently, there's usually some small detail that I overlook. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Unable to access FTP server using local account created.  Ftp server is 2003 and not using IIS, but OpenSSH.
User seems to have all the permissions needed to access through WinSCP, but I keep getting the access denied message when attempting to connect.
I'm not sure whether or not I did not add this user somewhere with permissions, whereas I am not an avid FTP server administrator.
Any help would be appreciated.

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

There is a security system scanner that needs to access a server to scan.  If it states the below, what would be the command to allow?  I've check sshd_config and thought allowed IPs would be in that config.  But it seems I need a command and the system previous setup owner is gone at my current new job.  

RHEL 7.4 Maipo

If you are running IP filters or IP wrappers you will need to permit the systems to access your system via Secure Shell (SSH) on port 22. The IP addresses for the systems are

1.2.3.4
2.3.4.5
and
2.5.6.7

These are just placeholder IP addresses.  
What would be the command line only to add this?

We have a partner that has a MySQL / Maria DB Master server.  We have a slave and want to replicate against their master.  Some want to use the builtin SSL replication and others want to tunnel via SSH.  Can anyone provide some recommendations or pros and cons of each.  Any security, maintenance issues to consider?  Also, I assume that since we would be replicating against their master, they would have to run with the ssh port listening, not our slave?  Thanks

Hi all,

I've been trying to access our Cisco SG300 via URL and putty and no luck. The switch is fine and running. I've been wanting to go in and bring a port alive.

Earlier, for the first time in weeks the GUI loaded via URL on the browser so I tried to log on and it wasn't doing anything. Also tried HTTPS and nothing (GUI.PNG) also I exit browser and reload it says... Unable to connect, etc on most browsers(cisco_browsers.png)

I also tried console access with PUTTY.
SG300 -> male to male serial cable-> DB9 to USB cable. Device manager shows COM4 so I set that into putty.

Connect to: COM4
Speed: 115200  (have tried 9600)
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Parity: NONE
Flow Control: NONE

SSH and Telnet was also not working.

SSH- file attached (cisco_putty_ssh) ...  "Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: public key)

Telnet- file attached (cisco_putty_telnet) ... "Network error: Software caused connection abort"


I've completely rebooted my laptop and the SG300 switch as well.

We use SFTP on our AS400 to Send data to a client on port 10022 (was set up a long time ago), and it works perfectly.  We have a new client who wants us to SFTP using port 22, which is the default port.  When we try to SFTP it tries to use port 10022.  I looked and the SSH config file shows port 22.  Why is SFTP getting port 10022 from, and more importantly how do we change it to use port 22 for this client?

Have a new 3650 configured from scratch, I'm trying to get ssh/radius authentication setup.  I went through a guide to setup on switch, I have several others that are working so i know the server is setup correctly, but when i try to use it on the switch, SSh works, and i can log in with local creds, but AD creds don't work. Thinking I'm missing something.  was hoping someone could take a look over my config and see if anything stands out.. Thanks
