1 - Exact description
2 - Looking for a ftp server very secure, easy to install, administer and configure?
3 - Why install MySecureShell (sftp - Secure File Transfer Protocol) instead of a server FTPS (File Transfer Protocol over SSL) ?
4 - But then why not use an SCP client?
MySecureShell is a shell which will help add more features to sftp-server which will bring major FTP servers like proftpd.
The advantages are that MySecureShell based on the very secure protocol called SSH and that allows a full data encryption and issued requests. It is very easy to install, use and highly configurable.
Then MySecureShell is for you ! Moreover, it is entirely FREE !
MySecureShell is based on OpenSSH! You have all the high level of security of it PLUS complementary capabilities and very strong offered by our software !
Here is an overview of the possibilities of MySecureShell :
- Control bandwidth.
- Secure viewing rights.
- Administration of server by GUI.
- Management of the activity the server with logging.
- Control by user ip, groups ...
We have not listed, but know many features are available.
We offer in addition to all this the service' because you have access to FAQ and help center (Forum). '
Here are the motivations of this choice :
- Easy installation.
- Power Encryption OpenSSH is developed for the protection of data (remote shell).
- No certificate problems non-certified (for paying for it is authenticated) or certificate generation.
- Support public and private keys for secure authentication without password.
- Only one port to open for SSH and SFTP (port 22 by default).
- The protocol used is much more optimized than FTP because it is based on the protocol of the NFS (Network File System).
- It's a matter of choice that does not cost anything if you want to try.
The problem comes from the account created for the user who must use a valid shell to connect to the server using SCP software.
This choice implies that there is great confidence in the user.
With MySecureShell, the client is not obliged to have a valid shell that could slow or even detrimental to security of the server.
