    OK, this is probably a stupid question, but why do you need it? Mac OS
    X comes with OpenSSH already installed. I'm not running 10.4, but
    10.3.9 reports it's running OpenSSH 3.6.1p1+CAN-2004-0175.

    Forgive me if I am misunderstanding your question.

    It's for at college. They completely block the terminal, so I can't
    access OpenSSH. Yet, I store and access everything on my home
    computer, and there's no other good way of doing it and still keeping
    LF(linux) endings instead of CRLF(win) or CR(mac)...

    Maybe that explains it better....

    If your system admins think they're locking down a box by preventing
    you from using Terminal.app, you've got much bigger problems. I'd
    suggest that you work to figure out exactly how they did that. Did they
    remove permission for you to run Terminal.app? Has it been removed
    entirely from the system? The stupid things people will do to "secure"
    a system...

    Assuming they didn't do something really stupid like change your
    login shell to /bin/false, you could simply create a read-write
    disk image with Disk Utility.app on a working OS X system. Copy
    /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app from the working system into
    the disk image. Then convert the image to a compressed, read-only
    image. Under 10.4, this will only take up just under 2 MB . Copy
    it to your home directory on the afflicted OS X systems. To run
    Terminal, just open the disk image, and run Terminal.app from there.

    Another option, if you have access to Classic, is to run MacSSH.

    To answer your original question: Putty is a Windows-only program,
    AFAIK.

    Greg, blocking all low numbered ports except specifically authorized ones
    for outgoing connections, such as HTTP and HTTPS, has become extremely
    common in university firewalls. It just prevents a lot of inappropriate
    stupidity, such as email worms reaching out on port 25, SSH vulnerability
    rootkits on port 22, rsh and telnet scans while guessing passwords, etc.,
    etc.

    If they're blocking the ports, then this won't help. If they *monitor* for
    outgoing port 22 SSH connections, then working ISOund them this way may
    really irritate your local sys-admins.

    There is a half-finished native port to Mac OS X. As I understand it,
    it's unlikely to get finished. It shouldn't be treated as production
    quality, and compiled versions aren't provided.

    They're using a very basic security policy. I was able to get around it
    by loading up Adobe Bridge and spawning the .app from there, however,
    they're constantly monitoring all the comps, and instantly rebooted
    mine. :X

    Lots of fun O.o

    Hmm..interesting. Do you know of any other non-installation-requiring
    ssh applications, knowing that I can't access a terminal? Thanks. -Wes

    There are some fascinating Java-based server-based clients out there, which
    would allow you to SSH to a web server and run a console session from that.
    It doesn't get you local X sessions, near as I can tell, but it's useful
    when you can't install a local SSH client or reach out with one.

    Did you try asking them? ;-)
