wodSSHServer is an SSH Server ActiveX component (but also Telnet Server ActiveX as well) that will give you ability to easily add SSH2 (and SFTP) server capabilities to your application, as well as old TELNET server protocol. SSH protocol provides strong encryption of data, and authentication of users over insecure networks, such as Internet. Using it is really easy. Add it to your form (or create instance on the fly), use internal methods to generate pair of keys for the server (or import existing ones from other SSH servers) and start the server. From that moment, clients will be able to connect to your server, and do the following
Using wodSSHServer is ideal if you need server side of encrypted communication, and don't want to hassle with certificates (used in SSL communication). Almost everyone today has some sort of SSH client which can be used to connect to your server.
Included samples will show you, step by step, how to
Maximum number of connection is not omitted by wodSSHServer. It depends on your OS and computer power. If you wish, you can easily limit number of the connection by rejecting new connections when wodSSHServer1.Users.Count exceeds certain value.
Supported ciphers are AES, 3DES and Blowfish. 3DES is defined as required by SSH2 protocol specification, so all clients should be able to negotiate proper cipher between client and the server. Supported MAC algorithms are MD5 and SHA1.
More information about SSH2 protocol can be found from IETF-secsh Internet-Drafts (http://www.ietf.org/ID.html). Usage of SSH1 version is deprecated and is not recommended to be used anymore, thus is not implemented in wodSSHServer.
Note: in DEMO version you can not change the value of BannerText property.
Thank you very much for the rapid responses. I was a little nervous about dealing with a company that is on a different continent from me. You have proven my concerns to be unfounded.
I've heard that you are amazing with your replies coming back so quickly - and now I've seen the speed in which you reply first hand.
The wodCrypt product is great and we appreciate your effort to add support for UNIX Crypt.
Just thought you'd like to know that my gateway app with your SMTP Server component held the line against a DDOS attack today...
...with a minimum of effort as the DLL interface was written with such simplicity...
Brilliant, even works on the mobile phone...
You have been great as far as offering support is concerned and has been extremely responsive to both support requests and suggestions for product enhancements.
The SFTP ocx is one of the finest pieces of programming I have seen. It worked out of the box...
