Microsoft Makes OpenSSH For Windows Open Source

Already a few months working with Microsoft to develop OpenSSH support for Windows and the first milestone is achieved, namely to open up the source code. Via SSH, users can remotely log on to machines. By popular demand, Microsoft decided therefore to add SSH support on Windows PowerShell, so soon administrators can easily manage different platforms.

The Luxembourg NoMachine had in the past developed a port of OpenSSH for Windows. Microsoft has now taken the port and synchronized with OpenSSH 7.1. Now that this milestone has been reached, the software giant decided to publish source code so that others can respond. Steve Lee Microsoft warns that it is still at very early code comes mainly as a "developer preview" should be seen and not for production environments is intended. Eventually, Microsoft hopes a version that does here is suitable to be delivered in the first half of 2016.
