|FISH is discontinued! It is still supported, but no features will be added to it. A replacement called BAMSE is currently drafted, to be worked on starting at the end of january 2002. Please take a closer look at BAMSE and make it the best SSH client for OpenVMS.|
Current version: 0.6-1
FISH is a SSH client for VMS. It features the essential demands of draft-ylonen-ssh-protocol-00.txt. It was thought for a short while that the session key between the server and the client was sent over the network in the clear. Further investigation proved that thought wrong, however.
Christer Weinigel and
Christer did the main work in the beginning, Richard did bug removal and added more ciphers and more.
FISH was essentially a port of Top Gun ssh 1.2, but has evolved quite a lot from it. There will pretty soon be no much similarity left.

Announcements go to the following mailing lists and newsgroups:
You can find the latest version on http://dist.lp.se/historical/VMS/. The version info in the files may be confusing, here how it works:
For a version xx.y, the file name will be FISHxxy.ZIP
For a version xx.y-z, the file name will be FISHUzxxyy.ZIP
So, for example, FISH 0.4-5 was FISHU5004.ZIP, FISH 0.6 is FISH006.ZIP
You may also find source-only kits. They have _SRC appended to the mame. For example, the source kit for FISH 0,6 if FISH006_SRC.ZIP.
