Project Aon

SSH is a mechanism to securely access a remote machine through an encrypted communications channel. Those who have access to the Project Aon web server are highly encouraged to use SSH and its file transfer extension SFTP rather than insecure legacy applications such as Telnet and FTP.

Windows Clients

  • FileZilla (file transfer only)
  • WinSCP (file transfer only)
  • Cyberduck (file transfer only)
  • PuTTY (primarily command line) Although PuTTY can be used for file transfers, it is probably the best way in Windows to access a command line on the web server.

Unix/Linux/OS X Clients

Most *nixes (including Mac OS X) will have some version of ssh already installed which provides command line and file transfer access. There are also some GUI clients available.
