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.

I am new to ssh and I have no idea what I'm doing. I followed the instructions on public and private key generating, and all that grand stuff, but when I open terminal on my mac, I get this. What am I doing wrong?

I have powershell code for winscp that uploads files from a local directory using a filter on files in the directory to a remote server.  I need code to determine if files are in use before they are uploaded. If a particular files is in use, I would like the code to skip the upload of that particular file and continue with the upload of the files not in use.  The code needs to accommodate applications that might be using the file that do not support file handles and any process that might have a lock on the file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Dear All

           I have a CentOS 7 suddenly can not ssh to it, below is the error, any idea what happen ?

Previously Bluecoat proxy allows access to SendThisFile service but sometime in
May, Bluecoat proxy has blocked it as "potential data loss/leakage".

I can see that SendThisFile has options for files transfer via PCs/laptops/emails
though previously when I could access, they have good encryptions etc.  Don't
recall SendThisFile is HIPAA & PCI certified.

What about IPSwitch (refers to link below):
It's PCI & HIPAA certified but what else sets it apart from SendThisFile that it's
not a potential data loss/leakage source?  Some major insurance companies
want to exchange files with us using IPSwitch.

What I can think off are whether IPSwitch can restrict such that:
a) use only sftp that IPSwitch offers, not ftps (correct me, but I believe ftps is
   less secure than sftp)
b) don't allow transfer via PCs at both sender/recipients ends but this is
    something controlled at recipient/sender's ends right?  Not by IPSwitch
    or unless IPSwitch has an option that restricts connections from servers
    IP addresses of senders & recipients - does it have this option?
c) how is IPSwitch PCI certified?  They mask their customers data or have
    segregation of different customers (ie no co-mingling)?
d) how else can we restrict such that sender/recipient do connect from
     public places & homes of their staff but only from their organizations'
e) I suppose we should not allow …

I am using secureCRT version 8.0.4 on windows 10. Whenever I ssh into any of the devices, there is no terminal length set for example when i ssh into cisco router and give a command of Show Run it displays the whole configuration instead giving breaks i.e.--more-- in the middle like in putty.

How can i achieve the same using secureCRT?
I have many winscp ftp website, login, password
Rather than me looking through email, and sms to figure out what the passwords are,

how can I backup the passwords in a file
and use that same file to restore in a new windows 10 computer
I found a really nice looking example of how to do telnet over VB.  

It is the last post on this page:

It looks to be exactly what I need, but I don't know how to use it.  

I want to use it to connect to cisco routers and issue commands.  

I've built a form to do it, but, I have a really silly problem.  I don't know how to instantiate the class, set the settings and use it!

I don't do a lot of VB and this bit has stumped me.  

Ideally, if you checkout the code below and assuming it is ok,  tell me how to:
1.  Connect to a telnet device using the hostname from a textbox called txtHostRouter and the port number from a textbox called txtPortNumber
2.  Recieve whatever output (probably a password prompt)  into a text box called txtOutput.  
3.  Send some input from a text box called txtInput for example "show Run"
4.  Recieve the output into a different text box called txtOutput.  

So I can keep doing 3) and 4) until I am finished and then close the connection.  

I am not sure where to start, so even if you just get me started, I bet I can work it out.  

I have pasted the code below

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

I have tried to disable the Microsoft DEP but I am still stuck with this error.
Sys admin has provided me username and password and advised that solaris uses nis (and then I've been given hostnames).

I've downloaded putty but it gives me authentication failure. Nothing special I have to do if its NIS authentication?
I want to be able to SSH to the outside interface of a remote ASA 5505 so that I can connect to make changes without losing connectivity as the current access is to the inside interface over a VPN connection. I tried  ssh XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX outside but it did not work. This is the public IP of the outside interface. What else do I need?

I am in the process of setting up SFTP communications with a vendor of ours.  After changing the project parameters from using a web service to SFTP, I have learned that IIS 8 does not support SFTP. Can anyone provide me with an application to use?

1) Secure - Kind of a given, but I'm saying it anyways
2) Actively supported
3) Easy to use - I'd prefer not to have to do everything via command line\powershell
4) Known product\Trusted - I'm looking more for a time tested application rather than the newest latest greatest

1) Can be a purchased product  - though I'm aware of several that are free
2) If it has any special features, I will be using the SFTP to mainly receive XML files into a T-SQL database

Thank you!
Dear Colleagues,
I have HP Aruba2530 switch installed at state hospital.
The problem is that SSH and WEB access is not secured by any password, all the settings are default whatsoever.
Plz help me to add a password authorization to SSH and WEB interface.
I am writing a script using plink to send commands remotely to network devices (routers and switches) and then output the console to a text file.  Using the below, I can successfully acheive this but with some strange results:

(plink -ssh user@ -pw password <.\commands.txt)>output.txt 2>&1

The resulting output.txt file actually shows the command output and then all of the login banner mumbo jumo you get when you log into a device normally (***WARNING*** THIS IS A PRIVATE COMPUTER SYSTEM, etc...)
So my format ends up being:

- results
- login banner

I am having trouble getting the format correct to send a pause trough plink so that my output file shows the results as if I was logged in:

- login banner
- results

Any suggestions?  or is this even possible?
Able to take telnet of the server and unable to take ssh.
My 14.04 LTS ubuntu box has 2 active network connections:

The default gateway is the hardwired eth0 (192.168.1.x) going to my cable modem, which has a WAN ip address of 68.x.y.z

The wireless connection is wlan0 (192.168.0.x) is to a cellular access point to Sprint LTE gateway, which has a WAN ip address of 174.x.y.z

I want to have the option to ssh into the server with the option of choosing which WAN to use for ssh socks proxy port forwarding.

I added a route with this command:
route add -net gw

Open in new window

Here's the output of my route command:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface         UG    0      0        0 eth0   U     9      0        0 wlan0   U     1      0        0 eth0

Open in new window

I want to ssh with the -b option to bind to the wireless connection and with socks proxy port forwarding going through the Sprint network, not through my cable modem:
ssh user@myserver -b -D 1080

Open in new window

But when I use my browser to go to using the socks proxy on port 1080, I still pull up the WAN ip address of the cable modem 68.x.y.z rather than of the sprint WAN.

How can I get ssh to route through the sprint WAN on wlan0, rather than the default gateway through the cable modem?
We are outsourcing our customer screening function (to screen for customers who
are known to be $ laundering or terrorist-funding related) to an external vendor.

We have to do sftp to transfer our customers' info to this vendor daily.

a) Is is more secure that we are the sftp server (ie the vendor connects to us to
    'get' the data or the vendor is the sftp server (ie we 'put' the data to the vendor
    or it doesn't matter?
    Considering whether to get Tectia ssh client or Tectia ssh server

b) Anyone come across direct secure data transfer between apps (say via API)?
    Does such API uses sftp protocol?   If so, any keys need to be established and
    exchanged between our apps & the vendor's apps?  Perhaps this question
    doesn't make sense

c) For a more secure environment, should we enable one-way instead of two-ways
    ssh keys exchange?'

d) I'm inclined to think that should an ex-employee left us, he can copy the ssh
   keys out;  so would a 2nd extra authentication (say password authentication)
   help?  Or what could help with this scenario where a staff at vendor's end
   or our end leave & copies out the ssh keys?
Hi, all,

I've had a number of people help me out with a slow computer issue. The other computer on my network slows down to almost nothing sometimes as well.

I decided I'd turn off wireless access to the router for a few days, to see if that would help. My gateway IP is I've never had trouble accessing it before (It's a Telmex Infinitum router).

But the connection times out. So two questions:

1. Could that be an indication that it's being controlled by someone else? Or am I just being paranoid?

2. How else can I get into it? I know in my old job I used telnet to access routers. I guess I could do that?

Thanks. I'm on Windows 7 SP 1.

UPDATE: I tried telnet, maybe I did it incorrectly?
