SSHD [Removed]


Have you ever wished you could remotely access your server’s admin console without having to setup a complex remote access system? Now you can with SSHD.

SSHD securely exposes your bukkit admin console using the SSH protocol – the same protocol that serves as the secure foundation for nearly all remote server administration.

  • Compatible with all ssh clients, regardless of operating system.
  • Remotely view your server log in real-time.
  • Remotely issue commands from the server console, just as if you were on the server itself.
  • Supports multiple concurrent remote connections.
  • Strong identity support using public key authentication.
  • Remotely script your server by issuing one-off console commands with ssh.

Why should I use SSHD?

  • Your server runs on Windows.
  • You are in a shared hosting environment that only gives you access to the log files.
  • You want to share access to your server console, but don’t want to give anybody access to the machine its running on.
  • You always wanted to use RCON, but want to see the server log as well.
  • You are tired of running your server in a Screen session.
  • You just want to access your server console using SSH.


  • listenAddress – The network interface(s) SSHD should listen on. Default all
  • port – Specify the port SSHD should listen on. Default 22
  • username/password – The credentials used to log into the server console. Default blank

Note: By default, only public key authentication is enabled. This is the most secure authentication mode! Setting a username and password will make your server less secure.

None – just install and go.

None – SSHD uses cryptographic certificates or a secure username and password to verify remote access.
