This application will help you access your computer from a remote location.
WinSSHD is a SSH2 server with support for SCP, SFTP, port forwarding and bvterm. It features an advanced console with support for Unicode, colors and large screen buffers. WinSSHD is intended for remote administration of Windows servers; for advanced users who wish to access their machine remotely, as well as for a wide spectrum of advanced tasks, such as establishing a VPN using the TCP/IP tunneling feature. WinSSHD installs as a NT service. Here are some key features of \"WinSSHD\":
· Ease of use: WinSSHD was written specifically for the Windows platform so that it is easy to install and configure. In a regular Windows environment, it will work immediately upon installation with no configuring.
· Unlimited connections: WinSSHD imposes no limits on the number of users who can connect. It will accept as many simultaneous connections as you need!
· Windows groups: WinSSHD 4 natively supports configurability through Windows groups. No need to define account settings for each Windows account individually. WinSSHD knows what groups a user is in and, if configured, will use appropriate Windows group settings.
· Speed: WinSSHD is one of the fastest SSH servers available. With Tunnelier, SFTP file transfer speeds of up to 5 MB/s (megabytes per second) can be obtained.
· Single sign-on: WinSSHD 4 supports GSSAPI-enabled Kerberos 5 key exchange, as well as NTLM and Kerberos 5 user authentication. This means that, using Tunnelier or another compatible GSSAPI-enabled client, any user in the same Windows domain, or a trusted one, can log into WinSSHD without having to verify the server\'s host key fingerprint, and without even having to supply a password! Using Windows group-based settings, the user\'s account doesn\'t even have to be configured in WinSSHD.
· Virtual accounts: want to set up an SFTP server with many users, but don\'t want to create and manage 1000 Windows accounts? No problem. WinSSHD supports virtual accounts, created in WinSSHD Settings, backed by the identity of one or more Windows accounts. WinSSHD settings for these accounts are also configurable on a virtual group basis.
· bvterm: in conjunction with our Tunnelier SSH client, WinSSHD provides you with the best console available on the Windows platform. Our bvterm protocol supports the full spectrum of a Windows console\'s features: colors, Unicode characters, and large scrollable buffers. Of course, WinSSHD also supports standard protocols such as VT-100 and xterm.
· Flexibility: most WinSSHD features can be configured individually on a per-account basis from the user-friendly WinSSHD Control Panel. Using our Tunnelier SSH client, the WinSSHD Control Panel can be accessed and configured through the same user-friendly interface from any remote location.
· Server-side forwarding: with WinSSHD and Tunnelier, a server and multiple clients can be set up so that all port forwarding rules are configured centrally at the server, without requiring any client-side setting updates. The SSH clients only need to be configured once, and port forwarding rules can easily be changed when necessary.
· Scriptable settings: Using the supplied wcfg utility, all settings can also be configured from a text file, from a script or interactively from the command-line. Settings can also be configured programmatically through the WinsshdCfgManip COM object.
· Multi-site support: WinSSHD supports multiple simultaneous, independent installations on the same server for customers needing completely separate sites for different groups of users. Multiple WinSSHD versions can run concurrently, installed on separate sites.

· Virtual users: Implemented a further fix for the issue first addressed in version 5.18 - when WinSSHD has been running for a long time, the password for the WinSSHD_VirtualUsers account can expire on some systems due to their security policy, preventing virtual users from logging in until WinSSHD is restarted. This fix should allow WinSSHD to reset the account\'s password as intended, without requiring a restart.
· Subsystems: It turns out that there are third party DLLs that may get loaded as part of WinSSHD on some systems, which intrusively modify the process\'s current working directory. Previous WinSSHD versions relied on the current directory of the WinSSHD service staying the same in order to start the terminal shell or file transfer subsystems. We implemented a workaround to no longer rely on this, allowing WinSSHD to be used with third party DLLs that change its current working directory.
· SFTP: When a client requested a file to be opened in TRUNCATE_EXISTING mode, WinSSHD wa...
