how to change protokol from Telnet to SSH



we need to change connection protocol from telnet to ssh because of the security reasons. Is there anyone experienced on this configuration. I had a look on Deployment Management Configuration guide but it didn't inform me enough to able to change protocol settings and configurations.

Hi Nilay,


You will need an SSH server installed on the application server, for example you can use OpenSSH, there is a component for Cygwin also, if running on a Windows platform.

Then you can easily edit the Environments in your Workbench and set them to use SSH2 and/or Secure Copy 2, instead of Telnet and/or FTP.


Best regards,

If all your servers are Linux and Unix, SSH is probably supported without additional software. Download putty.exe and type your hostname and see if it connects.
