iSSH is a front-end application to the command line application 'ssh'. It provides a quick and easy way to start an SSH connection to a remote computer. You may be asking, What's the point of running SSH without an interactive command prompt (Terminal)? Well, running SSH in the background will not supply a prompt, but, it will forward ports. This is the main purpose of iSSH. You can set two options with iSSH; which ports to forward to the remote computer, or, to start an SSH SOCKS proxy. The first could be used to forward a VNC connection over SSH and the latter could be used to bypass your work's Web site filters. Either way, iSSH offers a simple way to start a SSH connection for those who don't know how to use the Terminal or just don't need it.
What's new in this version:
Support has been added for the Sparkle software update framework version 1.5b6. This means all new updates to iSSH are downloaded and installed securely. Also, the release notes look nicer!
