Prevent security attacks on your system

James Thornton

Pros
  • Enables rock-solid encryption
  • Lots of preferences at hand
Cons
  • Could prove tricky for novices

OpenSSH is a free version of the SSH connectivity tools that technical users of the Internet rely on. Users of telnet, rlogin, and ftp may not realize that their password is transmitted across the Internet unencrypted, but it is.

OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides secure tunneling capabilities and several authentication methods, and supports all SSH protocol versions.

"Will delete your PATH variable and break your computer"

This installation will replace your PATH system environment variable. To put it simply, this is one of the worst things a program can do and will not only break your command line but the functionality of every program you use.

Pros
  • openssh does work
Cons
  • should append to the path variable rather than replacing
