Hi



I use putty for managing my unix/linux boxes.



Is there any GUI replacement for putty? I am looking for something like
windows explorer.



Thank you,

Alan

Try the older freebie SSh client used by many .edu's. Has ssh shell and
sftp in typical Windoze-style gui:

SSHSecureShellClient-3.2.9.exe

.....available here:

ftp://mirror.pa.msu.edu/ssh/

Thank you guys for reply.



Sorry, I wasn't clear.



I am trying to manage files/subdirectories between multiple linux/solaris
boxes. At this point I use putty. It works but it is quite tedious.



I briefly saw people use a product called f-secure. It allows you to travel

to different subdirectories through a winodws explorer like interface. It
also opens

a ssh/telnet sessions at specific subdirectory if you want. Moreover, it

manages files and directories between multiple boxes. Indeed it is an

amazing product. The problem is f-secure is not available anymore (or I

cannot find it). That is why I am looking for a similar tool.



If there is any windows based software that provide such service, it would
be very helpful for my job.





Any help would be appreciated,

Alan

Use Cygwin instead of putty. Cygwin will give you an X Server as well as
ssh. Do an ssh -X machinename and then launch Nautilus (assuming you have
Gnome on the Linux boxes) or whatever the KDE equivalent is if you are
using KDE.

From windows I presume...?

I'm confused. Explorer is a file manager and putty is a (ssh) shell
client to connect to a remote server, the two perform completely
different roles.

Please explain more clearly what you want.

Just open some xterm/kvt or alike and login? Or do you mean
running on doze? I don't know, don't waste my time with it and
your question seems OT.

STFW, closest match should be 'winscp', which usually does a
great job for people limited to running doze.

Perhaps OP like to try WinSCP: dual pane file transfer client uses
some of PuTTY's apps and does ssh + scp file transfers?

That must be quite an old app. as for as long as I can remember F-secure
is an anti-virus company.

Maybe Exceed might suit your requirements? It's not free, but does what
I think you need.

That is a nice app. I have used it a lot in the past. However, that only
fulfils the explorer part of the OP's requirements - not system
management per se.

I do system management over ssh terminals, whatever else would one need?

From what I remember of WinSCP is that's it more more of a FTP-type
client than a fully functional ssh client.
