Introduction

A number of programs are recommended throught the web page for various tasks. Here is a summary of each program I recommend, along with a few that are not mentioned elsewhere.

Note that these are all applications for Microsoft Windows operating systems. If you are using a flavor of LINUX or UNIX, you should already have (and know about) the relevant programs.

Email Client: Eudora

Downlaod Page: http://www.eudora.com/products/eudora/updater1.html

Eudora is one of the best available email clients for the Windows operating system. They offer a free version which has limitations on the more advanced features, a nag-ware version that is unlimited, but shows you adds as you are using the software, and a purchased version that is fully functional with no adds.

SSH Client: PuTTY

PuTTY is a free SSH/Telnet client for Windows. It offers adequate SSH functionality for most purposes, but is limited for more advanced users (see SecureCRT below).

SSH Client: SecureCRT

SecureCRT is the premier SSH client for Windows, but quality comes with a price tag of $99. However, if you use SSH sessions on Windows frequently, it is worth the price.

SCP Client: PSCP
