MindTerm is an SSH client written in Java supporting both SSH1 and SSH2
You must be registered and logged into HPC:Factor in order to contribute to the SCL.


MindTerm is an SSH client written in 100% java which supports both
version 1.5 and 2.0 of the SSH protocol as well as a number of
extensions thereof. It can be used as a standalone program or be run
as an applet, and it works with any JRE implementing Java 1.1 or
later. For more details see the section 'MindTerm features' below.

MindTermLite is a light-weight version of MindTerm primarily
intended for devices with small screens. It has a much more limited
GUI and the terminal emulator is optional.

MindTerm does include third party software (which is available under
a BSD-type license). For more details see the file

How to run MindTerm

With a modern java it is possible to launch MindTerm with:
java -jar mindterm.jar

With older versions of java it is necessary to specify the main
class: java -cp mindterm.jar com.mindbright.application.MindTerm

It is also possible to launch MindTerm as an applet. It can be run
in a separate frame or embedded in a webpage. It is worth noting
that the MindTerm application always runs on the users client
machine. This means that any SSH connections will originate from
this machine. For details on how to set things up see Applet.txt

Differences vs the commercial version

The main difference between the free version and the commercial is
what the licenses allows. The only difference in the source code is
the license statements.

Another difference is that the commercial version includes signed
jar and cab-files. These are needed to get full functionality when
running MindTerm as an applet. The following functions normally
requires that the applet be signed:
* Connecting to a server different from the one hosting the applet
* Reading/writing files on the local system
* Opening local listeners

These limitations do not apply when MindTerm is run as a local
application. Also nothing prevents anybody from signing the MindTerm
applet themselves, apart form the fact that it is nontrivial to
