Bitvise SSH Client is highly customizable tool to be used in specific situations and controlled environments. The portable Bitvise SSH Client version was developed to run Bitvise SSH Client distribution from a USB key, in the U3 and PortableApps formats.
Additionally, remote server configuration is supported: using Bitvise SSH Client, all WinSSHD settings can be configured remotely. The server's event log can also be remotely viewed and managed.
- Support for RSA and DSA public key authentication with comprehensive user keypair management.
- Powerful SSH port forwarding capabilities.
- Dynamic forwarding through integrated SOCKS and HTTP CONNECT proxy.
- Automatic resuming, text file awareness, recursive subdirectory transfers.
- High speed - up to 5 MB/s when connected to a WinSSHD server, network bandwidth and disk resources permitting.
- Fast responsiveness to user input even when in the middle of multiple file transfers.
- Advanced, scriptable command-line SFTP client.
- All terminal emulation is done in a regular Windows console.
- UTF support with VT-100 and xterm, Unicode support with bvterm (full Unicode support on NT-series Windows platforms).
- Sftpc - an advanced command-line SFTP client.
- This is not a new feature release, but a successor to 7.29 with continued maintenance updates. (We skip over versions containing zeros to avoid ambiguities. For example, 7.03 and 7.30 might both be referred to as "7.3".).
- Small changes in key places improve CPU efficiency on the order of 30% (impact may depend on the system). This improves transfer speeds where CPU is the bottleneck – or maintaining same performance, allows for a greater number of simultaneous connections. Users who were previously maxing out a single core and seeing transfer speeds of e.g. 150 MB/s, may now see e.g. 200 MB/s.
- Fixed VT-100 keyboard mappings. Function keys will now be sent correctly over VT-100 and xterm when VT-100 mode is enabled. Adapted navigation keys for VT-100, including: Insert, Delete, Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down.
- Removed unnecessary input length limitations in user authentication input boxes by permitting scrolling. This should allow the use of long YubiKey two-factor authentication strings using the method keyboard-interactive.
- Diffie-Hellman key exchange algorithms that use group exchange are once again deprioritized, regardless of which cryptographic provider is in use. This means other key exchange algorithms will again be preferred. In version 7.21, we stopped deprioritizing these algorithms because our Windows CNG cryptographic provider can handle dynamic DH group parameters generated by servers like OpenSSH. However, there remain older servers, such as SunSSH, which generate DH groups which are not acceptable to any of our cryptographic providers.
