SSH service

Post by HansH » Tue Jun 21, 2011 12:01 am

Just saw the main page with the the google summer of code 2011 projects.

One of them is a ssh service....
Now it happens I have a published a ssh service (with source) but which makes use of a bought (closed sourced) ssh library.
It is a pure windows ssh service (no GUI or cygwin requirements) which I use with the reactos cmd.exe under windows.
link: http://www.atbas.org/wssh

Feel free to try it out
If there is someone who wants to build a ssh service from scratch, I am willing to help out (if I have enough knowledge)

I did a bit of digging around the link that Hans provided. Basically wSSH is dependent on a component provided by weonlydo software [1], which is available on a proprietary license. wSSH itself is available on a license written by Hans himself that is largely based off the MIT one. I have not had the time to check if there are open source equivalents of the weonlydo component, but assuming there is one, and assuming that it is not too difficult to refactor wSSH to use a different library, this might make an interesting project.

Hans, feel free to present yourself to the devs on Freenode IRC, #reactos.

@Lone_Rifle, Does it mean that we can't use it as opensource software since it's using proprietary library? Thanks.

You can use whatever you want. The problem is that ReactOS project might not be able to distribute it with our OS.

You can distribute my binary version, I am allowed to sell or give away the programs I create with it.
What I can't do is give you the source of the library or my license key.
If you want, I can ask the guys at weonlydo to be sure.

Other possibility, there is also a libssh (libssh.org) project which starts to look like a very good alternative.
There are multiple people trying to build a ssh server with it, but it is a bumpy road....
If I can build a core server with it, I will try to use it also as a alternative library source.

hope this helps.

We dont ship binary only apps. Only things we can build by ourselves.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

no problem, clear answer.

The best alternative is perhaps then to see if the libssh version can be used.

I am also very interested in this...

software in this kind of 'limbo' can still be added to RAPPS, right?

I see no reason why not. RAPPS is a repository of software that (supposedly) runs on ReactOS. If it works, and if it can be distributed without copyright infringement, that's all that's needed to include something.

I would deem that highly desirable.

But I wonder, did anyone of you guys manage to get it to actually run? I tried, it failed; the reason being that it somehow insistend on a C:\Windows directory - while we have ReactOS.
