Running Client Programs

Tectia Server for IBM z/OS contains three client-side applications: sshg3 (Tectia SSH terminal client), scpg3 (SSH file copy client), and sftpg3 (SSH file transfer client).

The ssh-broker-g3 (Connection Broker) component handles the client-related tasks associated with the sshg3, scpg3, and sftpg3 client programs. The Connection Broker is the most resource-intensive component of the Tectia client tools, because it does all of the cryptographic and authentication-related tasks for the clients. By default, the Connection Broker starts in the background whenever a Tectia client program is started, and stops when the connection is terminated. For more information on the Connection Broker, see Tectia Server for IBM z/OS User Manual.


The Connection Broker is only used when processing client operations; it has no relation to the server.

The ssh-socks-proxy component is used for transparent FTP tunneling and FTP-SFTP conversion. For more information on the TectiaSOCKS Proxy, see Tectia Server for IBM z/OS Administrator Manual.
