OpenSSH Server for Windows

3 Feb 2009

I’ve used putty.exe for doing ssh client work on Windows machines for years.

But I always thought that any Windows ssh servers were commercial, so when I’ve really had to have Windows ssh access I’ve setup Cygwin.

But here’s a free (as in speech and beer) .exe that installs just an ssh server – sshwindows. Probably been around forever, but since I use Windows so little nowadays I’ve haven’t heard about it until now.

Of course the nice thing about this coming from the OpenSSH project is that Mi┬óro$oft haven’t been able to get their grubby little fingers into the protocol and pervert it (an old conspiracy theory, I know).
