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 version 3.1
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!
