Client Features
  • Flexible support for a broad range of server platforms: Performs best with Pragma SSH Server and Pragma Telnet Server, but it works well with server software from other vendors on a variety of operating systems like Solaris, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, VMS and Macintosh
  • SSL Support for telnet connections

  • Supports port forwarding: Pragma's secure shell clients enables secure transmission by any TCP/IP application by passing the data over a secure SSH session, with only minimal changes to the application required
  • Session logging: Optionally logs session output to a text file (only includes printable ASCII characters).
  • Scripting: Console clients use easy-to-write script files to automate logon and session operation.
  • Handles multiple server configurations: With Pragma GUI clients, there's no need to reconfigure the client for each server used
  • Gateway capability: Console clients can be used inside a telnet or SSH session to connect to another telnet or SSH server
  • Authentication: Authenticates users with certificate, password, and Windows GSS-API Kerberos and NTLM Active Directory authentication, allowing single step sign-on for seamless secure access to Windows networks
  • Encryption: Supports multiple advanced encryption algorithms for optimal security: AES128, 192, 256, Blowfish, 3DES, Arcfour, and CAST128
  • Customizable terminal window and fonts: To make your software environment most comfortable, you can dynamically resize the terminal window by changing the size properties of the console window. And you can choose any fonts supported by the Windows console
