I wanted to let you know that an SSH2 API is available in the VanDyke ClientPack. This API allows the following types of operations to be scripted
through a COM or .NET interface:
  • Full control over SSH2 connections, including getting the ident string, specifying authentication methods and proxy/firewall settings, etc.
  • Sending a command to an SSH2 server and getting the output produced by the command
  • Tunneling/port forwarding
  • File transfers using SFTP
  • Remote file management, such as controlling file access or retrieving file attributes
  • Adding hostkeys to a hostkey datbase
  • Adding keys to the SSH2 authentication agent
At this time, the API does not support terminal emulation.

The API functions can be called from VBScript, C++, or any scripting platform that supports COM.

If you would be interested in trying the API, you can download the VandDyke Software ClientPack from the following web page.

If you try it, please e-mail me at to let me know how it works for you and if there's additional functionality you would like to see added.
