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.

Openssh is all you need: good, working, free. This also works, but gives nothing more and it's shareware. Doesn't get a 5 from me, no sir.

This is actually something that's quite rare to find on the windows platform, I haven't used it yet, but I intend to try it out and look forward to a working SSHD that has a GUI frontend. I didn't get that it was a SSHD from the description, but others are saying it is, and if it is, then my god please make more like this, 5 stars just for the effort >> ;-p

This program does exactly what it's supposed to -- it is a ssh daemon for win32. If you don't know what it is, don't give it 1 star. Using this along with the Windows Resource Kit vbs administration scripts allows for decent remote Windows admin. It is still Windows, so don't expect alot.

Also, this isn't a WEB SERVER.

Put it in the right category next time...

What is the point of releasing it to beta news if it can't be downloaded right away. You have to go through an application process. If you ask me, you shouldn't even post here if your not going to make it available to everyone. Use cnet or something if you want to pull those types of tactics.
