Bitvise SSH Client is a fast, easy to use and robust SSH client that offers flexible TCP/IP tunneling support. It incorporates an FTP-to-SFTP bridge which performs translation between the FTP and SFTP protocols, allowing any FTP client application to connect securely to an SFTP server through Bitvise SSH Client.
Both active mode and passive mode FTP data connections are supported, as well as restarted transfers, directory listings and other features.
All FTP clients should be able to list directories and transfer files across the FTP-to-SFTP bridge, including integrated clients in applications such as Dreamweaver, GUI clients such as BulletProof FTP, and command line clients such as the default ftp.exe client accompanying Windows.
Note: Bitvise SSH Client is free for individual use. However, a right of use must be purchased for environments where usage exceeds the limits of free use set forth in SSH Client License Terms.
Here are some key features of "Bitvise SSH Client (formerly Bitvise Tunnelier)":
· Powerful SSH port forwarding capabilities, including dynamic forwarding through integrated SOCKS and HTTP CONNECT proxy;

What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Command line clients: Improved text colors; added a color scheme for dark blue background, and a color scheme for PowerShell's default colors and palette.
· Remote Desktop: Fixed an issue which could cause the SSH client to not detect the Remote Desktop client version on 64-bit platforms.
· Tunneling: Implemented a workaround for the Dropbear server, which translates the client's request to listen on 127.0.0.1 into "localhost" in server-to-client forwarding
