Introduction

SSH Secure Shell is secure connectivity software that you can use to access systems such as Astro. SSH Secure Shell offers a secure connection between your PC and Temple's servers because information is encrypted when it is transferred. It is also SSHv2 compliant and enables you to easily upload and download files. 

SSH Secure Shell has two components:

  • Secure File Transfer Client - Enables you to transfer files from your computer to and from a Unix server.
  • Secure Shell Client - Enables you to log in to your Unix account and run commands.
