SSH protocol connectivity tools.   Free
Add to my Watch List
Email me when discounted
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.
What's New
Version 6.0:

Features:

  • ssh-keygen(1): Add optional checkpoints for moduli screening
  • ssh-add(1): new -k option to load plain keys (skipping certificates)
  • sshd(8): Add wildcard support to PermitOpen, allowing things like "PermitOpen localhost:*". bz #1857
  • ssh(1): support for cancelling local and remote port forwards via the multiplex socket. Use ssh -O cancel -L xx:xx:xx -R yy:yy:yy user@host" to request the cancellation of the specified forwardings
  • support cancellation of local/dynamic forwardings from ~C command line
Bugfixes:
  • ssh(1): ensure that $DISPLAY contains only valid characters before using it to extract xauth data so that it can't be used to play local shell metacharacter games.
  • ssh(1): unbreak remote portforwarding with dynamic allocated listen ports
  • scp(1): uppress adding '--' to remote commandlines when the first argument does not start with '-'. saves breakage on some difficult-to-upgrade embedded/router platforms
  • ssh(1)/sshd(8): fix typo in IPQoS parsing: there is no "AF14" class, but there is an "AF21" class
  • ssh(1)/sshd(8): do not permit SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST/ACCEPT during rekeying
  • ssh(1): skip attempting to create ~/.ssh when -F is passed sshd(8): unbreak stdio forwarding when ControlPersist is in use; bz#1943
  • sshd(1): send tty break to pty master instead of (probably already closed) slave side; bz#1859
  • sftp(1): silence error spam for "ls */foo" in directory with files; bz#1683
  • Fixed a number of memory and file descriptor leaks

Does this coëxist with or overwrite Apple's implementation?

If it overwrites, how can I know whether it will mess up other parts of my Apple-provided infrastructure?

The more important question is, why do you want to install it? Unless you understand fully the implications of installing this, just leave it alone. OpenSSH is already built-in to OS X, so just use that. Here are some GUI options:

I can't install OpenSSH 4.5 because it looks like the Makefile has a syntax error on line 3. It doesn't seem to like ".include" but it's happy with simply "include" without the dot. If I make that change then it gets a similar syntax error down in /usr/share/mk/bsd.own.mk (due to ".if" vs. "if"). I don't want to touch that file.

The original error is:
Makefile:3: *** missing separator. Stop.

MacOS 10.2.8 (old, I know, which is why I want to upgrade ssh), /usr/bin/make is GNU Make version 3.79

Has anybody run into this?

That means the Makefile is for BSD make, not GNU make. A configure script is possibly misidentifying the OS.

OK, make it with "bsdmake" not "make".

Download is unusable when clicked. "File does not appear to be compressed or encoded. Obtain further information about the contents of this file from the sender or provider of the file." Thanks a lot. Me, bitter? Disappointed? An utter waste of download time!
