Windows Server 2019 officially supports OpenSSH for the first time
by João Carrasqueira
Back in 2015, Microsoft said it would build OpenSSH, a set of utilities that allow clients and servers to connect securely, into Windows, while also making contributions to its development. Since then, the company has delivered on that promise in recent releases of Windows 10, being introduced as a feature-on-demand in version 1803.
However, Windows Server hadn't received the feature until now, at least not in an officially supported way - Windows Server version 1709 included it as a pre-release feature. But that's finally changed, as Microsoft today revealed that Windows Server 2019, which was made available (again) in November, includes OpenSSH as a supported feature.
OpenSSH has been around for a while, and it was born as part of the OpenBSD project. Linux, macOS, and many more have used it for some time, and its addition to Windows Server means that organizations can use the same tools across many different operating systems, including Windows.
You can learn more about OpenSSH in Windows from Microsoft Docs, or you can visit the GitHub project for the Win32 port of OpenSSH.
I need to work on getting call recordings from third party location to our SFTP servers. They gave us two options.
1. They push them automatically to us. They can only send them in FTP format but not SFTP format. I don't know if this a problem or not so let me know.
2. If FTP is a problem then the other way they can do it is set up an FTP server on their side that we can access and pull records to our SFTP server.
Let me know which of the options we would like to go with so that we can proceed with it.
If we pull recordings from their FTP server to our SFTP server, Will it be secure?
Does anyone know of an SFTP solution (preferably free) which allows verbose logging? I'd like to see when a client (service) connects and disconnects, but Solarwinds SFTP doesn't give me that granularity of detail.
I'd like to present you Steed, which started its public beta 2 weeks ago. I'm one of the developers of the application, and we've been working hard for months on this project.
As the title says, Steed is an FTP, SFTP, Azure and S3 client, it allows you to browse and transfer files from each of these "protocols".
We though windows needed an file transfer client, that was visually appealing, easy to use, and up to date.
We know there is a lot of other FTP client on the market, but we though this one would bring something new to the Windows application ecosystem.
You can find it at : www.frenchfrysoftware.com/steed,
It has been build for Windows 7, but also support XP, and Vista. It might also work on Windows 8, even if it is not officially supported for now.
Keep in mind that this is a beta.
You can provide us feedback on our support page, or you can contact us via twitter.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
