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.

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

This is the actual size

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.
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@"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.

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.

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.

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

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?

Hey I am changing my SSH key.

How do I remove my old SSH key from my servers trusted keys.
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

I'm trying to follow this guide in order to setup an SSH tunnel for VNC onto an ubuntu desktop from a Windows desktop.

I can connect via SSH but the moment I start the VNC connection to localhost::5902 I immediately get the following message:

"Connection has been gracefully closed".

Any ideas what could be causing this? Is it a bad setting on the Ubuntu computer I'm trying to VNC into? Did I configure PuTTY or TightVNC wrong? Is it because I changed the default SSH port number? Is there something I need to do on my router other than port forward the ssh connection appropriately (which I already did)? Is there an alternate method you would suggest?

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS & Windows 10, both 64 bit.
I am not familiar with Linux but have configured a Linux appliance. The box is configured and I can log into it via console. I never use putty and tried to SSH into but get the following below. I know am able to authenticate via console, but not SSH. I was wondering if I need to enable something to allow remote access.  If so, what commands must I put in to enable it? Please advise.

I have 1000+ of these - and it appears the parent process for each I have checked is the same command... not sure what is going on... any ideas?

Dear Experts,
I have spent so much time trying X11 forwarding but still no success. Can you help me with it?

We have an SFTP setup and have a client that wants to know what protocols/hashing algos/encryption we allow.  I found this info, I'm not sure if this is good... should any of these be disabled?  Any insight would be helpful.

How can I tell if SSH and cypto key is enabled on cisco when I do show run ?
I have tunneled mixed linux and windows clients to a 'within-firewall client' (that could access the share's host) before, so I know that that, at least, is possible.

But what about tunneling directly from the client to the host of the network share?

Can I have samba listen on port, say, 5559 (just an example), and only accept connections from localhost, and tunnel a client's 5559 to that host - so that the client appears to be connecting from host's localhost? I can't figure out how to set it up. So far, I have samba configured:

hosts allow = ::1 lo
interfaces = lo
bind interfaces only = yes
And I'm tunneling from the host:

ssh -R 5559:localhost:5559 shrusr@shrhost -Nf
However, if samba is already running, than TCP forwarding fails. If the tunnel is already running, than samba cannot start. Is what I'm trying to accomplish possible? Is there some other way to do it?

It seems like it should work - I can even netcat myself files across that ssh tunnel. So, netcat has no problem listening to the same port as ssh. Only smbd refuses, and also blocks ssh from that port if started first.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I am currently researching techniques used to exfiltrate data, such as ICMP tunneling, SSH tunneling and DNS tunneling. I have come across the word "covert channels" but am not sure if this refers to the tunneling techniques I have mentioned. Can someone explain what the exfiltration techniques through tunneling are called? i am asking to try narrow down my research keywords. Not sure if they fall under covert channels.

Thanks in advance for your assistance
