What is the best way to set up an SSH server on Windows with Bash support?

Laga Mahesa May 20, 2012

I’d like to install an SSH server for tunneling and for remote management. My shell of choice is Bash, so support for that is a plus.

The server should be, preferably, a service and eat as little resources as possible.

What are the best options?

    MobaSSH has the features you are looking for (and then some). You can find it here http://mobassh.mobatek.net/

      That looks pretty good, thanks. I tried the demo and it wouldn't let me log on using FuTTY.

      Meanwhile I looked again at WinSSHD - it turns out they've gone free for personal use! I loaded that up and was running in no time, so I'll use this for now.

      Thanks, Bruce.
