    There's plenty of alternatives that offer the same features and don't cost anything.

    Why should I pay for something I can get for free?

    Hello, you mean you'd like to pay for something that's free? Please try this product!

    Oh you want the product that does all this stuff and is still free? FreeSSHd

    So the linux version of this program is freeware, but the windows version is shareware?

    Nice way to screw people over for using windows.

    Not tried it yet, but its a welcome addition as metioned, given that this kind of thing is tricky to find for Win nowdays. F-Secure used to do a superb SSH server/client package but they sold it WRQ who for some bizarre reason have buried it?! (they claim its in their 'Refections' suite, but i checked out the demo and it is'nt.

    Right now though I use OpenSSH which does a great job (and is domain user aware FYI).

    The most valuable feature of this software and what makes it worth the money is the AD integration. Sure OpenSSH is good and free, but if you have an AD domain full of access groups and wish to provision SFTP rights, you have to recreate that security architecture in the passwd and groups file, and you now have two points of administration that you must keep synchronized. With VShell, your work is already done.

    Also the ability to create multiple virtual home directories and provision them with AD groups is a lifesaver. Good software, been using in Enterprise environment for over 4 months now.
