I use a lot of SSH now and again to keep an eye on what our servers are doing. Instead of hunting around for a good SSH client, I decided to ask the Oracle, Rafe, of All About Symbian what he recommended.
In miliseconds I got a reply sending me to the s2putty sourceforge page to get the Symbian Series 60 version.
I downloaded it and……. well, it’s fantastic.
The only issue I have is that the passwords for our servers are absolutely horrific. Shocking. You need to cut and paste’em because they’re such an arse to type.
Yes, I could fiddle around with public and private keys, but that, also, is a bit of an arse to configure unless you’re a ultra geek like the chaps, for example, at Blackfin. I bet Dan and Jay already have SSH on their E61s.
So alas my screenshot here is blank. Just imagine lots of unix code on it. I tried logging in a few times to one of the servers to take some screenshots but I kept getting the password wrong 😉
I know, however, that if I need to, if I absolutely positively need to get access to a server, I can manually type in the password and I’m connected. It’s good and fast too.
