Secure Shell and Secure FTP Clients

To access the cluster you need a secure shell (ssh) client, which works much like telnet and rlogin.

To transfer files using ftp you need a secure ftp (sftp) client. Secure ftp clients comes in to flavours: Either as an secure ftp protocol supported by SSH/2 or as an wrapper to secure copy (scp). Both flavours work.

NOTE: You must use secure shell or secure ftp clients based on the SSH/2 protocol. The SSH/1 protocol will not be supported due to its weak security by design.

This page present a collection of links to ssh clients.

For those in need remember that you can tunnel X traffic through the ssh connection. On Unix X-server platforms it is obvious that it works but it also works on M$ Windows using e.g. StarNet X-Win.
