"Does not work with OSX"

October 10, 2004

 |  Version: MacSSH 2.1fc3


Although it says it is compatible with OS X, it's only if you have the classic enviroment installed (9).

Does not work with X, period.

"OSX Support???"

Does NOT work with OSX like it claims. You need to have Classic support installed...and for those of us who are short on disk space, it's just not an option.

"Not X compatible"

March 06, 2003

 |  Version: MacSSH 2.1fc3


I don't know why it say's compatible with 7 to X, because that is not true.

It is not compatible with OS X ( only in classic, but thats not os x)

I don't have os 9 installed, so i was very dissapointed when it wouldn't load. I wish i could give a view on this product, but i can't because its not TRUE OS X compatible.

"works, but could be better"

February 24, 2003

2003-02-24 01:20:09

 |  Version: MacSSH 2.1fc3


User interface in Nifty Telnet is easier to use for configuration, but not too bad overall.

Allows key generation, and allows exporting public key to a file; doesn't seem to allow multiple sets of identity files (i.e. different ones for different hosts), and doesn't have a key import option (stores key pairs in preferences folder).

Does allow port forwarding (either direction), but only one at a time (can enter command line options to the lsh code as well, perhaps you can do more with that). Allows connecting through a SOCKS proxy, but not providing a proxy itself (such as OpenSSH does). Provides an FTP server (can be disabled, configurable users & passwords), but it always aborts transfers after about 64K. Does not support sftp or scp, which would be a VERY nice addition.

Adding in sftp and/or scp client code would make this a must-have application (unless you're using MacOS X in which case you already have ssh, sshd, sftp, scp easily available).

Since this is GPLed, perhaps someone will find the time to fix the minor problems and make this an excellent program.
