DSSH was written as a direct replacement for the OpenSSH client. It adds SSH over SSH tunneling capabilities (for example, to log in to a network hidden by a firewall), scripting support (using Groovy), an advanced agent (which allows storing of passwords) and "su -" interactive logging for machines that have disabled direct root login. All of this was done to enable automated scripting and logging to many machines based on a few simple rules. It uses the Ganymed SSH library (slightly patched).


Support was added for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) by using the community Java port (which was tested on 64-bit machines only).
