How many of you are still confused by the terminology SSH, aka Secure Shell? Today I’ll point you in the direction of some commentators with either hands-on experience or theoretical understanding to discuss it in different ways, with the hopes that one of the methods of explanation will stick for each of us.

Also known as remote SSH access without passwords, Secure Shell (SSH) and it’s related utilities (SCP, slogin) should be used whenever possible to provide encrypted data communications.
The owner of the Rabbit Bytes blog is a Systems Administrator for a Linux server. He goes into great detail here with excerpts of command line code in a step by step guide that will help you set up a password-free (that’s what SSH is) access to your Linux server. Basically SSH “Tunneling” is a secure means of encrypting access to your root server, from a remote access point. You may also be familiar with the term “salt” – as in providing a salt key for example to your private WordPress Blog article. This is something similar.
Perhaps an SSH broadcast will help explain things better than I, though…

This week we come clean on why the world’s #1 Linux podcast is edited on a Hackintosh, as well as what it’s going to take for things to get any better.
Juliana Payson‘s insight:
One of my favorite things about the Droid DNA is the SSH app allowed me not to have to carry around my laptop because I can do most simple remote administration from there. Does anyone know of any good SSH apps out there? Here in the Linux show they go on to review a couple of remote access “Tunneling” SSH apps. They even go on to explain when you should use SSH over Virtual Private Network or VPN.

Remoter Labs today announces Remoter 1.4.0 for OS X, an update to their productivity app that allows users to remotely control Macs, via Screen Sharing, and Windows or Linux PCs, using the VNC.
We saw from the Linux show that they actually edit their podcast from their Mac. They come clean with it because they recognize that Linux has some ways to go to catch up to professional media editing. Well, for those that are fully soaked in Mac due to your media profession, I’ve found a cool SSH app for the OS X that allows you to tunnel into your remote server from a completely different operating system.
