SSH2 on Windows 7 machine

Okay so I will admit I am less than a novice on setting up SSH let alone SSH2. The two things I need to know are:
1) Is it possible to setup SSH2 on a windows 7 based system
2) How do I go about that.

Let me know as soon as you can.

Thanks,



Question is, do you want to establish SSH2 connection from Windows 7 to a remote host or do yo want to be able to connect to Windows 7 vis SSH2.

If you want to make Windows 7 SSH server then look at following solutions:
sshd (http://www.freesshd.com)
mobassh(http://mobassh.mobatek.net)
Bitvise (http://www.bitvise.com)

If you need SSH client they you could download putty, securecrt, etc.

Connect to Windows 7 via SSH2.

Also, I am a bit confused as to the difference between SSH and SSH2.



Try freeshd as it is free. Main difference between SSH and SSH2 is that SSH2 uses separate protocols for authentication, transport and connection. It also support Diffie-Hellman key exchange. Refer to links below for a good comparison:

The program SSH (Secure Shell) provides an encrypted channel for logging into another computer over a network, executing commands on a remote computer, and moving files from one computer to another. SSH provides strong host-to-host and user authentication as well as secure encrypted communications over the Internet.

SSH2 is a more secure, efficient, and portable version of SSH that includes SFTP, which is functionally similar to FTP, but is SSH2 encrypted.

As mentioned above windows does not come with a SSH or SSH2 Server or Client you will need a 3rd party program do accomplish this



Let's look at this from another perspective - WHY do you want to connect to the Windows machine? Forget about how - we get it, you want it secure, but what do you expect to do once you connect? If you're a Windows novice, command line management won't exactly be easy for you.
