VShell 4.3 (Official) is now available for download.
VShell 4.3 for Windows now supports authentication using credentials provided by an external LDAP server and adds a manage-public-key interface allowing the VShell administrator to easily configure (add, remove, and view) user public keys. On all platforms, support for firstname.lastname@example.org authenticated encryption cipher provides additional encryption options. On UNIX platforms, VShell enhances fine-grained control of virtual directories by allowing specific file and folder access permissions to be specified on a per user, per virtual directory basis. Also new on UNIX platforms is the ability to specify which virtual directory a user is placed in upon connecting.
Here’s what’s new in VShell 4.3 (official):
- LDAP server user authentication. Login to VShell using credentials provided by an external LDAP server (Windows only).
- Manage user public keys. Easily add, remove, and view user and common public keys via the new manage-public-key interface (Windows only).
- Additional encryption options. Support for ChaCha20-Poly1305 authenticated encryption cipher (Windows and UNIX).
- UNIX virtual directory access permissions. Fine-grained control over virtual directory access permissions on UNIX. Specific file and folder access permissions can be set on a per user, per virtual directory basis (UNIX only).
