Please note: The FAQ pages at the HPCVL website are continuously being revised. Some pages might pertain to an older configuration of the system. Please let us know if you encounter problems or inaccuracies, and we will correct the entries.
An excellent starting point to find information about ssh is the OpenSSH web site which has many links, FAQ's, and manual pages. All of these are OpenSSH specific, but they also cover all you need to know about ssh in general. Then there is the original SSH HomePage with info/rmation/mmercials about ssh and other security products.
If you want to know it all in detail, there is the O'Reilly "snail book". Manual pages exist on our systems (man ssh, or man sftp) that give you a somewhat hard-to-read introduction, but ssh -? will give you a list of options. Finally, you can contact our user-support staff.
