Is there any SSH server?

Post by KenJackson »

Has anyone found an SSH server that works on ReactOS?

The Comparison of SSH servers Wikipedia page lists a bunch of potentials that I'm about to start searching through for a possible solution. But I'm just checking to see if someone has already been down this road.

Cygwin would be the natural solution, but it refuses to install on ReactOS. That's a shame.

Give it a while, they will all install eventually.

ReactOS is in Alpha and not usable except for testing purposes.

I'm quite impressed with the progress ReactOS has made even in it's alpha stage. When I tried it a few years ago it crashed easily and often but 0.4.3 hasn't crashed yet. I'm only playing with it. I've added it to my menagerie of OSes in virtual machines.

This problem isn't unique to ReactOS. Some years ago I was trying to get away from my extreme dependence on Cygwin so I searched for a non-Cygwin SSH daemon for Windows. I don't remember what I tried but I was unimpressed so I stuck with Cygwin. But it would be nice to have a native Windows SSH server that would also run on ReactOS.

Glad it hasn't crashed.

No, there is no SSH-server that I would know of. I was busy researching that in-depth, actually.

Long story short:

Some servers get you so far that you can "log in", BUT... you are NOT getting a shell.

FreeSSHd & Kpym looked most promising, but did not work, last time I checked.

What works:

A variant of netcat. - Obviously, that is not encrypted, etc., but if "sending commands from a remote location" is all that was wanted - then this may be indeed sufficient.

Not ready yet, but someday...

Unfortunately, Microsoft Windows 7 might be the minimum supported version.
