Tunnelier

Tunnelier
Tunnelier is a fast, robust, easy to use SSH client for Windows with flexible TCP/IP tunneling support.

Tunnelier incorporates an FTP-to-SFTP bridge which performs translation between the FTP and SFTP protocols, allowing any FTP client application to connect securely to an SFTP server through Tunnelier.

Both active mode and passive mode FTP data connections are supported, as well as restarted transfers, directory listings and other features.

All FTP clients should be able to list directories and transfer files across Tunnelier´s FTP-to-SFTP bridge, including integrated clients in applications such as Dreamweaver, GUI clients such as BulletProof FTP, and command line clients such as the default ftp.exe client accompanying Windows.

Tunnelier:

  • powerful SSH port forwarding capabilities, including dynamic forwarding through integrated SOCKS and HTTP CONNECT proxy;
  • support for RSA and DSA public key authentication with comprehensive user keypair management;
  • state-of-the-art terminal emulation with support for the bvterm, xterm, and vt100 protocols;
  • one of the most advanced graphical SFTP clients;
  • an advanced command-line SFTP client;
  • an FTP-to-SFTP bridge allowing you to connect to an SFTP server using legacy FTP applications;
  • WinSSHD remote administration features;
  • single-click Remote Desktop forwarding.

Tunnelier is free for individual use, as well as for limited use inside organizations! To begin, simply download the installation executable. Check the Tunnelier license to see if you can use it free of charge or whether a right of use needs to be purchased for your environment.

What’s New in version 4.33:

  • The default xterm terminal selection will now again send the same cursor key movement sequences as in Tunnelier 4.31 and earlier. For servers such as AIX that need alternative key sequences, a separate xterm terminal selection is now available, named “xterm-alt”.
  • sftpc now supports the “-progress=percent” command line parameter, which will cause it to print the progress indicator in a new line instead of updating it on the same line each time. Useful for programs that process sftpc’s redirected output.
  • The SSH implementation now takes steps to prevent the initial packet (KEXINIT) from being sent in separate IP frames. This should improve compatibility with servers such as Tumbleweed, which expect (incorrectly) to receive the entire KEXINIT packet in a single receive call, and fail the connection if this condition is not met.

Eraser

15 April 2010 1 comment

Eraser

Eraser is an advanced security tool for Windows which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. Works with Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Server 2003 and Server 2008. Eraser is Free software and its source code is released under GNU General Public License.

Most people have some data that they would rather not share with others – passwords, personal information, classified documents from work, financial records, self-written poems, the list can be continued forever. Perhaps you have saved some of this information on your computer where it is conveniently at your reach, but when the time comes to remove the data from your hard disk, things get a bit more complicated and maintaining your privacy is not as simple as it may have seemed at first.

Your first thought may be that when you ‘delete’ the file, the data is gone. Not quite, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table. The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.

Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.

There are several problems in secure file removal, mostly caused by the use of write cache, construction of the hard disk and the use of data encoding. These problems have been taken into consideration when Eraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design and a simple user interface, you can safely and easily erase private data from your hard drive.

Eraser Features:

  • It works with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.
    • Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 can still be used with version 5.7!
  • It works with any drive that works with Windows
  • Secure drive erasure methods are supported out of the box
  • Erases files, folders and their previous deleted counterparts
  • Works with an extremely customisable Scheduler
