Installing SSH Secure Shell Client on Your Home Machine

The Secure Shell Client is a more secure alternative to Telnet

1. Download the SSH Installer from CCSF's Sol Server

Start a browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in this address:
Press Enter. The screen should show a list of files as shown in the figure to the right on this page. Scroll to the file sshSecureShellClient-3.2.9.exe, drag it onto your desktop, and drop it there. That will start the file transfer from the sol server to your C drive. It is a 5 MB file so it might take as long as half an hour with a 56 K modem connection.

2. Run the Installer Program
