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 need a utility that will transmit data from a timing box to my pc over an ethernet cable.  Is there a better solution than TelNet?  It would be nice if it came with vb6 source code so I could modify it to control the directory where it sends the data.

I am a race timer and I use a proprietary timing software.  I am migrating to a new timing system and in order to get it to work with my software I have to stream the data from the timing box to a directory on my PC using a TelNet utility.  I have one that works perfectly...except that it seems to time out or simply stop communicating at certain points for one reason or another.  I need to resolve this in order to complete my migration.  

I found a TelNet program and modified it using vb6 to interface nicely with my system.  I have the source code.  I am looking for help on finding a setting or something that is causing the failure.  Let me know what I need to provide.  If this is more than I should be asking for I am willing to pay a reasonable fee for help with this.

Thank you very much!

I have a DNS entry to host name which resolve to two or more IP address. It seems like we are getting MITM warning due to this intentional configuration. What is the way to overcome this. Should we disable StrictHostKeyChecking but that would not be a good idea. I am wondering what is the recommendations.

I remotely connect to virtual Linux box as follows:  From my windows 10 computer, I invoke WinSCP.  From WinSCP, I open puTTy terminal.  
Then, I can clone source code from servers such as GitLab and GitHub.

What protocol am I using to connect to GitLab.  Is it SSH?

From puTTy terminal, I entered following command to see if existing ssh keys are present:

$  ls -al ~/.ssh

existing ssh keys
I can connect to GitLab and clone source code but there are no ssh keys in my home directory?  How is it possible to connect to remote servers without ssh keys?

One of my ESXI servers is not responding,  however, the VM's are active.  Is there a command that I can run from SSH to restart services without interrupting the VM's or do I have to reboot the entire box? If so where do I begin?

When I reinstall Ubuntu I was going to move my SSH Keys to that machine.

They are GPG encrypted and stored on a USB Drive that is Luks encrypted.

When I reinstall Ubuntu can I just decrypt id_rsa and id_rsa.pub and move them into

~/.ssh/

How can we show the TOKEN value while sshing to a remote server?

from the man page of sshd_config I see belows:
TOKENS
     Arguments to some keywords can make use of tokens, which are expanded at runtime:

           %%    A literal `%'.
           %D    The routing domain in which the incoming connection was received.
           %F    The fingerprint of the CA key.
           %f    The fingerprint of the key or certificate.
           %h    The home directory of the user.
           %i    The key ID in the certificate.
           %K    The base64-encoded CA key.
           %k    The base64-encoded key or certificate for authentication.
           %s    The serial number of the certificate.
           %T    The type of the CA key.
           %t    The key or certificate type.
           %U    The numeric user ID of the target user.
           %u    The username.

Open in new window


and from the man page of ssh_config I find belows:

TOKENS
     Arguments to some keywords can make use of tokens, which are expanded at runtime:

           %%    A literal `%'.
           %C    Hash of %l%h%p%r.
           %d    Local user's home directory.
           %h    The remote hostname.
           %i    The local user ID.
           %L    The local hostname.
           %l    The local hostname, including the domain name.
           %n    The original remote hostname, as given on the command line.
           %p    The remote port.
           %r    The remote username.
           %T    The local tun(4) or tap(4) network interface assigned if tunnel forwarding was requested, or "NONE" otherwise.
           %u    The local username.

Basically I want them to expand to some echo command so that I can see what is the current value when I ssh to a box, both from the client side and server side. I would really appreciate if someone can direct on how to achive it.

Best Regards!

I am trying to configure that using ssh any use should be able to login to my server, with or without password ( preferable ). I played with nullok which doesn't require a user to enter the password but I have to create a user and let that user have 'empty password' I am wonder if there is any other way so that any with with empty password should be allowed to login.

We know that in private public key authentication ssh client sends its public to to ssh-server. I would like to know if there is way we can log the public key of the client in ssh log file. Or is there a way to achieve it? Any direction in this would be highly appreciated.

Best Regards.

I am trying to compile openssh from source and would like to know if there is any option which can help me to disable SOCKS support of sshd so what when client execute
ssh -D <port number> <hostname>

Open in new window

then it should not act like Dynamic proxy. Though I only want openssh to support remote forwarding on individual port but not dynamic proxy. Please let me know if there is a way.

Thank you!

I am wondering if we can configure ssh server to be configured as threaded service instead of fork server. Like when a new ssh request is received then a child thread is created instead of child process.

Thanks in advance

ssh ec2-user@app.my_aws_host.com -p 2222

Open in new window


But I am getting connection refused error. Appreciate any help here

P.S: port 2222 is open in my security group in AWS

I have been playing with SSH local and remote port forwarding and have a little understanding of it. I am wondering if it is same as SOCKS protocol and how using SSH dynamic port we can achieve it.

Also, I am wondering what is the use case of SOCKS when we have VPN and port forwarding.

Thanks in Advance

I have an Ubuntu server running 10.04.6 LTS.  It is providing web services.  I have setup sftp and given permission to an 'sftp' group to login but have set their root directory to be /var/www/html.  They are able to connect to the server but cannot write to the folder.  I use setfacl to give the group write permission.  If they are already logged in, they can now create folders and files.  However, once they logout, they can no longer login.   If I remove the acl, the condition reverses again.  It is not limited to acls though.  I even tried just giving 'other' write-access.  Same thing happened.

sshd_config snippet:
Match group sftp
ChrootDirectory /var/www/html
X11Forwarding no
ForceCOmmand internal-sftp

Error when trying to write:
Permission denied.
Error code: 3
Error message from server: Permission denied

Have two Dell powerconnect 5548's set up in a stack. Recently have been unable to login and when attempting ssh, I get the following error.
Remote side sent disconnect message - type 2 (protocol error): "Connection closed by server: Server reached maximum number of simultaneous connections

Open in new window

There seems to be a command for other dell switches to clear sessions however I am not seeing anything for the 5500x series. I set a session timeout and even rebooted the switch but I am still getting this error. All line connections show as locked in the web UI however reactivating the locked line through the GUI does not do anything. Anybody more familiar with Dell switches have an idea for how to resolve this error? I can currently manage the switch by console and web ui however it would be great to get remote ssh sessions running again.

How to check if a remote ssl cert has expired using IP address  On mac terminal

Hi:

My environment:
AWS EC2 linux 2, apache 2.4, PHP 7.3, WinSCP (for SSH).
With AWS EC2 I have a choice of owners: root, www, ec2-user, apache
And a choice of groups: root, www, ec2-user, apache

Document root: www/html
Non-directory root which I classify as 'private' since I don't want browsers (except mine) to have access: www/private

I am the sole developer. The website is accessed by users on their browsers (vs local).

I need the following:
1. PHP to be able to create, edit and remove directories in both /html and /private.
2. PHP to read and write files in both /html and /private.
3. WinSCP (my SSH) to be able to create, edit and remove directories in /html and /private (from the browser), for development (not for world access).
4. WinSCP (my SSH) to be able to transfer, move, copy and remove files in /html and /private (from the browser), for development (not for world access).

I need help with:
Which owner:group should I give /html (and by default, its sub-directories) and why?
Which owner:group should I give /private and (and by default, its subdirectories) and why?

Cheers

I have two accounts with the same hosting provider.  They allow SSH access.  I created backup copies of websites on one account that I need to move to the other account.

I can move them individually, explicitly with "wget" but if I try to just pull all files from that one directory it fails.

Here is the command I am using, there are NO other sub-directories, just a bunch of files in one directory that I want to copy over from Account A to Account B.

wget -nc --level=1 --recursive --no-parent --accept jpa <url>/backups/

All I get when I run that command in the SSH portal is an "index.html" file and nothing more.  No error, just that one file (which is then automatically removed because it is not on my accept list).

I see other people (in general) are having a similar issue on StackOverflow (for example).

Server restriction maybe?  Problem with the command?

Thanks. :)

What Ubuntu tools (or tips) make learning Ubuntu easier?

I have used LINUX here and there over the years, but always feel like it's the first time. Most of my software development jobs were Windows and Web, with Windows Server.

So, I just successfully SSH'ed to my AWS Ubuntu instance. AND need to get up and running quickly.


What tools can you suggest?

Is there a GUI I should consider?

Was the X-Windows??

And what other tools are there besides a GUI?

I expect to host a WordPress Podcast. So, any helpful tools or tips would help greatly.


Thanks

Need to SSH to my AWS Ubuntu server from Mac Terminal

I opened Terminal, executed
sudo su (to become super user)

changed directories so that my current folder shows my KeyPair1.pem file and when I execute

ls - l

I see my .pem file has the following permissions:

-r--------@

please explain this. It's Read access for who exactly?

I ran "chmod 400 KeyPair1.pem" as a way to protect the file from being over-written, Is this the correct thing to do?


I have the IP address of my Ubuntu server:

I execute the same command provided by AWS, but find the terminal locks. I am forced to press Ctrl+C to get the cursor again:

ssh -i "KeyPair1.pem" ubuntu@1.2.3.4

Does anyone see what's wrong?

When I type ssh <ENTER> I get:
usage: ssh [-46******************Yy] [-B bind_interface]
           [-b bind_address] [-c cipher_spec] [-D [bind_address:]port]
           [-E log_file] [-e escape_char] [-F configfile] [-I pkcs11]
           [-i identity_file] [-J [user@]host[:port]] [-L address]
           [-l login_name] [-m mac_spec] [-O ctl_cmd] [-o option] [-p port]
           [-Q query_option] [-R address] [-S ctl_path] [-W host:port]
           [-w local_tun[:remote_tun]] destination [command]

Does this mean SSH is installed?

Is there a way to see what variant of SSH is installed?

Thanks

ssh access with public key..

I recently allowed port forwarding to an internal host. how do i configured access for users with ssh key so that only those users are able to establish a connection even if port forwarding is open. one of the users provided  me with her ssh public key but i'm not clear if that's something to be configured at the fw or server.

thanks.
