Bitvise SSH Server

7.22

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 1/4/2017.

Bitvise SSH Server (previously WinSSHD) provides secure remote login capabilities. Security is our SSH server's key feature: in contrast with Telnet and FTP servers, Bitvise SSH Server encrypts data during transmission. Thus, no one can sniff your password or see what files you are transferring when you access your computer over SSH.

Bitvise SSH Server is ideal for remote administration of Windows servers; for advanced users who wish to access their home machine from work, or their work machine from home; as well as for a wide spectrum of advanced tasks, such as establishing a VPN using the SSH TCP/IP tunneling feature, or providing a secure file depository using SFTP.

Personal Edition (installed by default) is free for non-commercial, personal use. It has the following limitations:

  • Can use only local Windows accounts (no domains).
  • Can configure only one Windows group ('everyone').
  • Can configure only one virtual group.
  • Has a limit of 10 Windows account entries.
  • Has a limit of 10 virtual account entries.
  • GSSAPI authentication is disabled (Kerberos and NTLM).

For any organizational use (non-commercial or commercial) or to remove the limitations of the Personal Edition, it is required to purchase a Standard Edition license and will require re-installing this package with the parameter -standardedition. See http://www.bitvise.com/ssh-server-license for more information.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
