SSH Tectia

Configuring SSH Tectia Client/Server Solution

SSH Tectia Manager provides centralized management for the SSH Tectia products. It enables creating configuration sets for SSH Tectia Server, Client, and Connector, saving configuration sets centrally on the Management Server, and sharing them within host groups.

When using SSH Tectia without SSH Tectia Manager, Unix configurations are made with a text editor (emacs, vi) or an XML editor. Windows versions have a graphical user interface.

Both Windows and Unix versions have the same configuration file format in local configurations.
