Unix Systems: (Linux, Solaris, AIX, Iris, HP-UX). If you don't have an ssh client installed on your system, we suggest you visit the Openssh web site. This is a relatively simple way to get one. Also, check out your favorite "free download site" for "Openssh"; you might find a precompiled executable.
Solaris: If you are using a SUN machine with Solaris, ssh/sftp is likely included with the OS. You can also get a pre-compiled version fromhttp://sunfreeware.com/ or one of its mirrors.
Linux Systems: Most installations should include a choice of ssh/sftp packages.
AIX Systems: If you are running a IBM workstation with AIX, there is some precompiled versions of ssh available. Click here to learn how to get them.
Windows Systems: There are several SSH-based programs available. One of the more popular and easy to use Secure Telnet applications is "PuTTY". If you choose to use PuTTY, you will find putty.exe, pscp.exe and psftp.exe in the download section. All are free and very easy to use.
