Can you please let us know when will the SSH Support be available for remoting to the local host on the box to perform dsa commands. Today only telnet is supported to perform this. We understand there is a workaround for telnet to the local host using Python script, but would like to know what CA will support out of the box this functionality.

The DXserver console supports telnet to a remote console port over SSL using a local TLSclient service as a gateway (installed with the product). The console includes a couple of authentication methods (password or userDn/password) to provide added security.


However, supporting SSH would be nice as most machines don't install with telnet by default these days.
