Portable Bitvise SSH Client (formerly Portable Tunnelier) 4.50 Rev. 2.0
Advanced security features
The application mainly focuses on security, encrypting all the transferred data, which offers it a great advantage in comparison with other programs in the same category, such as PuTTY, one of its most important competitors.
Allowing SSH tunneling, it is capable of delivering the security features required by the client and securely connect your computer to a SFTP server. The integrated FTP-to-SFTP bridge makes the data transfer possible, providing a safe working environment where data is encrypted using various protocols, such as AES128, Blowfish and more.
Integrated terminal emulator and remote access
The built-in terminal emulator is compatible with various protocols (such as xterm, bvterm, vt100 and xterm-alt) and multiple encoding methods. Portable Bitvise SSH Client allows X11 forwarding and provides support for advanced authentication technologies, such as SSPI (GSSAPI) Kerberos 5, NTLM authentication, RSA and DSA.
The list of features does not end here. The application features SSH port forwarding options using SOCKS or HTTP proxy forwarding, while the 'Remote Desktop' function allows quick access to a remote computer.
Other worth-mentioning features include the scriptable command-line SFTP client and the remote execution tool, which leave room for customization of the working environment.
Intuitive GUI and portability
Portable Bitvise SSH Client comes with a simple and well-organized interface that facilitates the configuration procedure. Thanks to the tab-based layout, all the options are easily accesible, while the logging area displays a list of all the performed actions.
As its name suggests, the application is a portable distribution of the Bitvise SSH Client, which does not require installation and can be launched from a removable device.
A recommended SSH and SFTP client
