syoSSH 0.04 – NEW VERSION OF THE SSH CLIENT FOR EPOC
Current release of syoSSH is: 0.04a.
Older version you can find here or here.


SUPPORTED PLATFORM
All Psion machines.


KEYWORDS
SSH, telnet, terminal client emulation, secure connection.


MOTIVATION
After applying my patches to the netBook OS image your eikon console support colours. I always want ssh client with colour support for my Psion netBook. So I modified existing syoSSH sources, add colour terminal support and fixed some issues. Version 0.04 of syoSSH was born.

WHAT IS NEW
New in syoSSH 0.04
  • Colour console support on the Psion netBook machines with patched OS (patched eikon.dll).
  • Automatic check colour machines.
  • Added missing application icon (similar with putty).
  • Default port is 22 now (not 0).
  • Default term is linux now.
  • Fixed uninstall issue. Uninstallation process deletes all application files now.
  • Added font (PCLatin1 fixed size 8x8) for syoSSH terminal.
  • Removed SIS sub package for EPOCTERM.DLL. UID used for font (DLL stored in apps\syoSSH\ now).
  • Added about dialog with author's credits.
  • Fixed DNS bug, (If host URL is IP address, syoSSH not resolved it).
  • Writing logs to the plink console now.
  • Writing log messages with timestamps.
  • Fixed various types of end line chars in the sources.

KNOWN PROBLEMS AND WORKAROUNDS
  • syoSSH doesn’t support Unicode charset (utf8-escape sequences). You must change value of environment variable LANG. After login into the Linux system you must type. For example: export LANG=en
  • syoSSH fall if server send some info text before ask for password (default setting in the Window’s OpenSSH server). Workaround isn’t ideal but work. Please disable banner info text option in SSH server configuration in the file: /etc/sshd_config.



I try fixing this bug in future. Actual syoSSH use historical version of putty sources. So, first important task is adding actual putty sources to the syoSSH project. If someone is able support this process, please contact me.

Nice.. Thanx for the new version.. everything is working for me as expected... But I missed one thing.. I'd like to use ssh keys for accesing remote ssh servers and plink does not have this possibility.. Does anyone even thought about recompiling putty command line client for psion? It has ssh key option included.
