VanDyke ClientPack for Windows and UNIX 7.3.1
VanDyke ClientPack tools securely automate file transfer, shell, and public-key administration tasks.
VanDyke ClientPack is a suite of tools for automating file transfer, shell, and public-key administration tasks, saving you time on routine administration and configuration tasks. VRALib, a key component of the ClientPack, is a COM and .NET API that enables custom scripting of SSH2 connections in Windows. ClientPack command-line utilities include: vsftp, an interactive SFTP command-line utility for secure file transfer; vcp, a command-line file transfer utility; vsh, a command-line shell utility; vkeygen, a public/private key generator utility; and vpka, a command-line tool for uploading keys to Secure Shell servers. All utilities support password, public-key (RSA, DSA, and Smart Cards using X.509), Kerberos v5 (via GSSAPI), and keyboard-interactive authentication when connecting to SSH2 servers. ClientPack provides Secure Shell encrypted logon and session data, including vsh port forwarding to secure TCP/IP data, X11 forwarding, and vcp and vsftp for secure SFTP file transfers.
ClientPack 7.3 improves security with the ability to generate larger keys and adds the vsftp option --no-flock, which turns off locking on local files for uploads and downloads, preventing a potential hang if the source file is located on mounted storage, such as EMC NFS.
