First Free Web SSH Client Released by serFISH.com
The consoleFISH is a web SSH client providing browser-based access to any SSH server for free. It is available for server administrators on www.serFISH.com from now on.
As any other web-based SSH client, the consoleFISH is based on the idea of relaying SSH communication through a tunnelling server. This might imply security risks, which are discussed in detail on the project's homepage. Still, browser-based access to SSH servers can be great if administrators need access to their systems from within company or free public networks.
"Web-based SSH clients are no substitute for traditional client applications such as PuTTY or OpenSSH" points out Jürgen Kuster, the founder of serFISH.com: "Respective tools can only provide backup access and require a certain amount of trust in the operator of the relaying service".
serFISH.com does not log passwords or any other kind of information transmitted by use of the consoleFISH. SSL is used to secure the communication between the relaying server and the SSH server as well as the connecting web browser. The consoleFISH as well as the other applications provided on www.serFISH.com can be used for free.
