SSH Tectia Client

SSH Tectia Client provides secure interactive file transfer and terminal client functionality for remote users and system administrators for accessing remote hosts running SSH Tectia Server or other Secure Shell server.

SSH Tectia Client provides easy-to-use graphical user interfaces for file transfers and for configuring the Connection Broker settings on Windows. The intuitive file transfer window includes separate views for the file folders in the local and remote computers, as well as transfer progress and history views.

SSH Tectia Client also includes advanced command-line tools for system administrators to set up secure automated file transfers, and support for outgoing and incoming application tunneling, such as X11 forwarding. On Windows, SSH Tectia Client supports also transparent TCP tunneling.
