SSH/SFTP Secure Shell is a one-stop application that supports both SSH and SFTP access. The program is available as a free download to UNC faculty, staff, and students at the UNC Shareware site.
Installing the application on your computer will install two icons to your desktop, SSH Secure Shell Client and SSH Secure File Transfer client. SSH Secure Shell client provides a command line interface and is used primarily for access to Pine and other resources hosted on the campus servers. The SSH Secure File Transfer client is predominately used for uploading files to AFS space or your H-drive.
Once you have downloaded and installed SSH/SFTP Secure Shell you can double click the SSH Secure Shell Client icon on your desktop to open the default SSH Secure Shell window, or the SSH Secure File Transfer Client icon on your desktop to open the default SSH Secure File Transfer window.
