OpenSSH in Windows 10: Windows 10 has started to become a very useful sysadmin Unix / Linux platform. Microsoft's operating system originally integrated it Subsystem for Linux from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and in the latest Windows 10 April 2018 Update, the company added a native Secure Shell (SSH) to Windows.
It took a lot of time as Microsoft started working on the transfer of OpenSSH to PowerShell from 2015 due to user demand.
In the end, however, you will no longer need SSH clients of third-party manufacturers, such as Putty, to connect to a system that has a SSH server. The OSSSH is a collection of client / server utilities, and provides developers and system administrators with the ability to use secure remote connection, remote file transfer, and public and private key management with any OpenSSH server system.
OpenSSH is commonly used on BSD, Linux, MacOS and Unix servers, but can be used on any platform (even Windows 10) with SSH.
Microsoft reportedly has the latest version of OpenSSH, OpenSSH 7.7, as a default in Windows 10 April 2018 Update. The OpenSSH server is also available, but you need to install it.
For full instructions on how to use the app, you can visit the OpenSSH page. The most common way to use the application to connect to a remote server is with the following command:
ή ssh [email protected]:22
If this is your first connection to this SSH server, the host fingerprint key will appear and you will be prompted to confirm that you want to connect. If you answer yes, the host key will be stored in the hidden% UserProfile% \. Ssh \ known_hosts file and so when you log in next time, you will not be prompted again.
Then you must provide the password. Immediately after all of your data is correct, you will log on to the remote server to schedule or run system management tools.
When done, type "exit" to close the connection.
