OpenSSH finally arrived in Windows 10 with April 2018 Update

OpenSSH at : Windows 10 is starting to turn into a very useful Unix/Linux sysadmin platform. Microsoft's operating system originally incorporated the 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.OpenSSH

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 ships the latest version of OpenSSH, OpenSSH 7.7, by default in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. THE OpenSSH is also available, but you need to install it.

For full instructions on how to use it s, 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:

ssh [user]@[host]:[port]

ή ssh

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 have to give it access. Soon after if all the information you provided is correct, you will connect to the remote server to program or run system management tools.

When done, type "exit" to close the connection.
