iSSH for Mac3.1

Easy way to start an SSH connection to a remote computer.

What is iSSH for Mac

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 website filters! Either way, it provides a simple way to start an SSH connection for those who are afraid of the Terminal or just don't need it.

What's new in iSSH

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!

Tried some of the alternatives, but this is the one that never crashed and connected fast and simple after the basic configuration. The app has an icon, not as it is shown (at least today) on MacUpdate (the default os-app icon). The only thing is that you must press "Load Settings" every time you start the app to load the saved settings (could just load them automatically, but well, I guess thats a matter of taste). For the price and reliability, recommended!
