Getting started with SSH

Post date: February 11, 2006, 04:02 Category: Network Views: 3544 Comments
Tutorial quote: The following sections hope to provide enough information to setup a user new to ssh with the appropriate files necessary for accessing remote hosts in a secure manner.

A couple of tricks with the secure shell

Post date: September 18, 2006, 13:09 Category: Network Views: 12392 Comments
Tutorial quote: One can do a lot more with ssh than use it for remote terminal session. Here we'll show how to copy files using ssh, use ssh as part of a pipe, vnc or samba forwarding via ssh and mounting filesystems using ssh (fuse + sshfs).

The 'no-configuration, only-active-when-needed' SSH VPN

Post date: April 13, 2005, 03:04 Category: Network Views: 3371 Comments
Tutorial quote: So, we started thinking about how we might set up a VPN between the application server and our internal software mirror. The only requirement is that the VPN be initiated from the "inside-out" and that the connection is only active for as long as we need to use. In other words, it would only be active during an administration session. Ideally, it wouldn't be a lot of work to setup and tear down either.

SSH to the rescue...

Fortunately, SSH client and server come with support for this out of the box, requiring no additional software to be installed, and no configuration changes. On the server side, sshd, the setting "AllowTcpForwarding" defaults to "yes" unless your sshd_config file explicitly disables it. On the client side, all you have to do is request the forwarding.

CLI Magic: More on SSH

Post date: December 9, 2005, 01:12 Category: Network Views: 3706 Comments
Tutorial quote: We've covered SSH before in CLI Magic, but this week let's look at some additional SSH features that new users might not be aware of. For the purpose of this article, we'll be looking specifically at OpenSSH, but many of these features apply to other SSH variants as well.
OpenBSD

Using ssh keys

Post date: December 13, 2007, 11:12 Category: Security Views: 6972 Comments
Tutorial quote: I discovered that I have quite a few ssh articles on my website, but none of them include how to simply setup SSH-keys. It's so simple and so convenient, lets have a closer look.

Tunneling SSH over HTTP(S)

Post date: March 12, 2006, 09:03 Category: Network Views: 4085 Comments
Tutorial quote: This document explains how to set up an Apache server and SSH client to allow tunneling SSH over HTTP(S). This can be useful on restricted networks that either firewall everything except HTTP traffic (tcp/80) or require users to use a local (HTTP) proxy.

SSH: Best Practices

Post date: January 17, 2008, 13:01 Category: Security Views: 5292 Comments
Tutorial quote: Are you using SSH in the best way possible? Have you configured it to be as limited and secure as possible? The goal of this document is to kick in the new year with some best practices for SSH: why you should use them, how to set them up, and how to verify that they are in place. All of the examples below assume that you are using EnGarde Secure Linux but any modern Linux distribution will do just fine since, as far as I know, everybody ships OpenSSH.

Manage Linux Workstations Using Xming

Post date: October 20, 2006, 18:10 Category: Network Views: 4049 Comments
Tutorial quote: SSH is one powerful tool. You can do just about everything under the sun using an SSH login to a remote computer. SSH works very well in low-bandwidth situations like dialup, or satlinks.

But wakeup, we’re no longer in the 80s - people want GUIs, let’s give them fancy-pants graphics, bouncing cursors and silly linux wizards. Remotely.

SSHerminator - Nice split screen terminal emulator and SSH client

Post date: February 19, 2009, 08:02 Category: System Views: 4743 Comments
Tutorial quote: SSHerminator is a terminal emulator based on Terminator, with extra SSH features.The aim of this project is not to provide a standard, general use Terminal emulator, but an emulator that provides as rich an experience as possible while using SSH (that can also be used as a standard terminal).SSHerminator is a semi-fork of Terminator. We sync up with the Terminator code as often as possible, to get the best Terminator features, but include our SSH hacks.

SSH Port Forwarding Through a Proxy Server

Post date: April 18, 2005, 03:04 Category: Network Views: 3237 Comments
Tutorial quote: A common use of SSH is port forwarding (tunneling). This use causes traffic directed to a particular port to be sent to a specified port on another computer. Because traffic is sent through SSH, the traffic is encrypted, allowing the transmission of sensitive data through arbitrary services.
