    Grant access to VShell services by authorized users or groups. On an individual or group basis, allow or deny access to VShell services such as shell, SFTP, and port forwarding.

  • Lock Down Users with Virtual Roots

    Virtual root directories let you assign different root directory access points to users or groups. In Windows, assignment can be based on access control lists (ACLs).

  • Automate Processes with Triggers

    Configurable trigger conditions allow automated responses to server events such as login, logout, upload, and download, as well as file/folder create, delete, and rename.

  • Flexible Logging Options

    Selected server messages may be logged in the VShell log file, sent to the Windows system log or a remote syslog/syslog-ng server. Message groups include errors, warnings, informational, connection, authentication, SFTP, port forward, debug, LSA, and FTPS. The W3C extended log file format option allows the use of third-party log tools to analyze VShell activity.

  • See Active Connections with VShell Monitor

    VShell Monitor is a real-time connection monitoring tool that allows an administrator to view active connections to the VShell server.

Whether you need file transfer or a wider range of remote access services, it takes reliable, configurable network access software to master evolving security threats and a rapidly changing business environment.

"I downloaded VShell and set it up within a day. It's been very reliable and I haven't had a single bit of down time.  We leveraged the trigger feature to automatically upload files in real time into our production system."

—Jeramie Mercker, Software Architect, Georgia Municipal Assn.
