editor's review






Bitvise SSH Client provides you with the capability of connecting to SFTP servers using your regular FTP client. It does that by tunneling your connection to the SFTP server through SSH in order to deliver the client with the necessary security requirements.

Although not intended for beginners, Bitvise SSH Client cannot be compared to PuTTY when it comes to the working environment and general ease of use. Where PuTTY draws a thick line between its functionality and looks, Bitvise SSH Client tries to blend them together to create a unique experience for all user levels.

Clear-cut interface for all user levels

This particular piece of software is wrapped in a rather simple GUI with a well-organized layout and categories. Everything is right where you'd expect it to be, and this intuitive approach can only come as a plus for Bitvise SSH Client when comparing it to other software in its field, such as the aforementioned PuTTY, SecureCRT, or WinSCP. However, since SecureCRT and WinSCP are more popular, Bitvise SSH Client has a lot of catching up to do, and it's surely equipped with the necessary tools for this.

Remote control and SSH port forwarding

With integrated terminal emulation for those of you prone to a text-based environment, various corporate authentication technologies support such as SSPI (GSSAPI) Kerberos 5 and NTLM or RSA and DSA public key authentication. Remote administration is also a breeze, with the aid of the single-click Remote Desktop forwarding function.

Among other important features, you can find powerful SSH port forwarding abilities and command-line parameters. The scriptable command-line SFTP client and command-line remote execution client create a highly customizable climate, while the FTP-to-SFTP bridge allows you to connect to SFTP servers with legacy FTP software.


The bottom-line is that Bitvise SSH Client can truly accommodate your needs to work in a secure environment, putting a wide array of tools at your disposal. The fact that you can also choose from several other programs in its category only makes it a choice of taste.
