Wrapping Up

Last but not least, this barely covers the surface of what SSH is capable of and what is built from the project. There are tools like rsync (from the same guy who wrote Samba) that utilise SSH to provide secure transmission of files. SSH also supports comprehensive tunnelling which makes it useful for building limited VPN style solutions or for forwarding systems like X11 to remote systems. VNC uses SSH by default for its "-via" option which allows VNC to be tunnelled through another system. Good luck!
