SSH is an amazing app. With it you can do the following (just to name a few):

  • Secure copy files over a network (scp/sftp)
  • Securely tunnel any port/protocol over a network
  • Remote login to PCs
  • Use shared/private keys for password-less logins
  • Set up a VPN
  • Blow past firewalls
  • Set up a proxy
  • View remote X11 apps locally

It runs on nearly every OS out there (see Cygwin for Windows).

That depends on which OS you're running. As I mentioned, see Cygwin for Windows or do a search on "cygwin ssh".

Totally standardized on all platforms (ok, not Windows, but catching up there).
