For those of us that do not know what SSH is.

Secure Shell

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows data to be exchanged over a secure channel between two computers. Encryption provides confidentiality and integrity of data. SSH uses public-key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer and allow the remote computer to authenticate the user, if necessary.
SSH is typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands, but it also supports tunneling, forwarding arbitrary TCP ports and X11 connections; it can transfer files using the associated SFTP or SCP protocols.
An SSH server, by default, listens on the standard TCP port 22. An ssh client program is typically used for establishing connections to an sshd daemon accepting remote connections. Both are commonly present on most modern operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and OpenVMS. Proprietary, freeware and open source versions of various levels of complexity and completeness exist.

Those of us systems administrator types use ssh to login and manage our Unix/Linux servers. This would mean that if you can get into your companies network remotely you should be able to also login to the machines and manage them. Just one very critical piece that most SA's need for their jobs...

And if your already at the office and on the wifi you should be able to check on problems and look at issues... We have wifi coverage throughout our offices so this is going to be very cool!

This is especially useful if you are in a large office complex that supports wifi.

k, this is a tool that we use to "hack" other machines, or in my case manage them. This is yet another hack in that it is a workaround for an ability that Mac OS X already has if we can get access to the terminal. Since we cannot get access to the cli at this time, this is a backdoor way for us to do the same thing.
