VShell 4.6.2 Maintenance Release Now Available

VShell 4.6.2 is now available for download.

This is a maintenance release to address issues found in version 4.6.1.

New in VShell 4.6

HTTPS Single Sign On (SSO) (Windows only)

Provide your Windows users with a convenient way to log on to VShell Enterprise Edition with HTTPS without entering a username or password. SSO reduces helpdesk workload by decreasing the risk of accidental VShell account lockouts and resulting password reset requests.

Enhanced automatic file renaming capabilities

Customize names of files or folders when moving or copying files in response to file operations. Standardize or specialize names by inserting dates, timestamps, usernames, session IDs, protocol, pre-defined text, and more.

Automatically send email with file transfer summary (Windows only)

Use logout triggers to send email notifications with the number of files uploaded, the list of files uploaded, the number of files downloaded, and the list of files downloaded during the session.

Automatically run commands that use file transfer summary variables

Use logout triggers to run commands or scripts using the number of files uploaded, the list of files uploaded, the number of files downloaded, and the list of files downloaded during the session.

Algorithm support

VShell now supports the rsa-sha2-256 and rsa-sha2-512 algorithms (RFC 8332) for host keys and public-key authentication.

SSH2 extension negotiation

For clients that support extension negotiation as specified in RFC 8308, upon request VShell will now send the list of available public-key algorithms.

Specified character restriction

Configure VShell to prevent clients from using specific characters in file and directory names.

Platform support

Support has been added for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Fully-functional evaluation copies of VShell 4.6.2 can be downloaded and evaluated for 60 days. VShell evaluators have full access to VanDyke Software’s expert technical support to assist with installation, configuration, and testing during the 60-day VShell evaluation period.
