SSH Client


An SSH client allows you to securely connect to a remote computer that accepts external connections.

Mac OS X and Linux

On Mac OSX, which is based on a Unix environment, you can use the built in terminal program. Terminal can be found Applications > Utilities. Linux systems similarly have a Shell program.

Optionally, you can use FastX. See Connecting to Quest with FastX for installation instructions and how to set up a connect to Quest specifically.

Windows

Windows does not come with an SSH client. We recommend either FastX or PuTTY.

See Connecting to Quest with FastX for FastX installation instructions and how to set up a connect to Quest specifically.

Download PuTTY and see How to Use PuTTY on Windows.
