Trusted Service Providers

AbsoluteTelnet/SSH attempts to improve application stability and security by only using recognized and approved (trusted) network service providers.  Unrecognized and untrusted service providers can sometimes cause instability in an otherwise stable system.  If AbsoluteTelnet/SSH bypasses an un-trusted service provider in favor of a trusted one, you will receive a message during the connection process that looks something like this:

Skipped un-trusted service provider  <service provider name here> 

On occasion, this behavior can prevent successful connection, particularly when a system tries to enforce the usage of a  particular service provider that we do not recognize.  If you received the message above and you're having trouble connecting, try disabling this behavior by changing the 'allow untrusted service providers' to 'yes' in the Options->Properties->Global settings.

I've tried lots of different telnet/ssh clients, and I have two long-time favorites: Putty and Absolute Telnet. Putty, because it's such a quick download that on someone else's machine i can run it without going through an install, and it runs ssh. But for my own machine, the only choice is Absolute Telnet. It stores my password, terminal appearance and connection settings so that it's literally 2 seconds from clicking the icon to being logged in to my remote ssh accounts. It's incredibly customizeable, but not overwhelmingly so. I hardly ever pay for software (I'm embarassed to say), but I like Absolute Telnet so much I've paid for the full version and I'm glad I did. It's important to note that this software is maintained by one guy, Brian Pence, who personally answers people's questions on his online forum and answers email inquiries (he's answered a couple of mine, and always been really helpful). I gotta say, you hardly ever get this kind of commitment and personal touch in software anymore. --Ben Wheeler
