Where to get a good SSH program for free?

What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

Is this my error? Am I wrong now?


Unlikely if they changed the port from 22 to something arbitrary and set up port forwarding on their router. Besides, if you did connect you would either need to know the user name and password or have a public key authentication set up in order to connect. Then once you connected, it would be like you are actually at the machine and in the shell. From there you can run commands.

Thank you for your answer.


Thank you for your tip. I was about to get a shell account from http://freeshell.org/ though, but now I maybe change my mind. But I want to learn more about telnet and that kind of stuff first :P

SSH > Telnet

Learn what SSH does and use it first.
