Build 5.0.133 of iPowerShell Pro has just been released. This build primarily covers iOS 9 compatibility with some bug fixes and performance increases. But we did slip in a very interesting and future oriented feature: the ability to connect to PowerShell remotely via SSH!
In June of 2015, the PowerShell team announced that they were going to embrace SSH connectivity to PowerShell via OpenSSH. This is exciting news for many in the community. Of course, we wanted to get a head start on supporting this ability, but how do we support something that has not yet been released?
As this article states, there are SSH solutions already out there. For this feature, SAPIEN has worked with /n Software to connect to their PowerShell Server product which allows connecting remotely to PowerShell via SSH. Its a great solution that actually works TODAY!
All-in-all, it is a seamless and easy way to interact with PowerShell on a server. Try it out!
/n Software offers a free single connection license for their PowerShell Server product.
