ENGARDE CONNECTIVITY






So far the only way we spoke of to connect to your EnGarde system was via the GD WebTool utility. To gain remote access you have another secure alternative. We provide SSH connectivity to EnGarde.

Since telnet is extremely insecure, it is not provided with EnGarde Secure Professional. SSH uses 1024 bit encryption to protect your connection.

Secure Shell (SSH) is a program for logging into a remote machine, as well as for executing commands on a remote machine. It is intended to replace rlogin and rsh, and provide secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network.

SSH connects and logs into the specified hostname. The user must prove his/her identity to the remote machine using one of several methods depending on the protocol version used. For more information on SSH please visit www.openssh.com, the OpenSSH Project home page.
