SSH1 and SSH2 support Both SSH1 (SCP) and SSH2 (SFTP) are supported in a single client, providing the maximum in flexibility when connecting to a range of remote servers.
User authentication Red Bird SFX supports Password, and Public Key (RSA, and DSA) when connecting to SSH2 servers. For SSH1 servers, Password, and Public Key are supported.
Encryption ciphers: Strong encryption The maximum 2048 bits length of DSA and RSA keys under SSH2 and the maximum 2048 bits length of RSA keys under SSH1; to provides strong encryption. Red Bird SFX supports aes128-cbc, aes192-cbc, aes256-cbc, aes128-ctr, aes192-ctr, aes256-ctr, rijndael128-cbc, rijndael192-cbc, rijndael256-cbc, twofish128-ctr, twofish128-cbc, twofish192-ctr, twofish192-cbc, twofish256-ctr, twofish256-cbc, twofish-cbc, twofish-ecb, twofish-cfb, twofish-ofb, serpent256-cbc, serpent192-cbc, serpent128-cbc,serpent256-ctr, serpent192-ctr, serpent128-ctr, blowfish-cbc, blowfish-ecb, blowfish-cfb, blowfish-ofb, blowfish-ctr 3des-cbc, 3des-ecb, 3des-cfb, 3des-ofb, 3des-ctr, cast128-cbc, cast128-ecb, cast128-cfb, cast128-ofb, idea-cbc, idea-ecb, idea-cfb, idea-ofb,, arcfour, arcfour128, and arcfour256 when connecting to SSH2 servers. For SSH1 servers, idea-cbc, des-cbc, 3des-cbc, arcfour, and blowfish-cbc are supported.
Compression Data that is to be transferred over a connection can be automatically compressed before it is encrypted and sent. The data is then automatically uncompressed after it is received and decrypted. Compressing data can improve transfer speed over slower network links. You can then choose the Compression level setting. The Compression level ranges from 0 (minimal compression) to 9 (maximum compression). Red Bird SFX supports both, and zlib spec.
Password and passphrase caching Session passwords and passphrases can be cached, letting Red Bird SFX store them in encrypted secure property file for ease of use later.
Host key management Red Bird SFX allows host keys to be viewed, and deleted.
Data integrity and authenticity checking Red Bird SFX supports Data integrity and authenticity checking through keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC). When connecting to SSH2 servers the following HMAC are supported hmac-md5, hmac-sha1, hmac-ripemd160,, hmac-sha1-96, hmac-ripemd160-96, and hmac-md5-96.
Data transfer mode Files are transferred by one of two modes in Red Bird SFX: ASCII or binary. Red Bird SFX transfer files in ASCII or binary mode automatically, depending on the file extensions. The file extensions can be pre-configured for Red Bird SFX under global options. The data transfer mode can also be forced to ASCII or binary mode on a per transfer bases.
Large file transfer Supports transfering Files over 2GB.
Setting properties during file upload Setting properties such as preserve time-stamp, and permissions of uploaded files.
Setting properties during file download Setting properties such as preserve time-stamp on downloaded files.
File and directory operations File and directory operations such as renaming, deleting, changing owner or group, permissions updating and directory creation.
Quick recognize icon mapping Files are mapped by file types to icons for quick reorganization.
Quick file navigation When you know where exactly in the filing system you want to go and choose not to use click navigation; the quick alternative go-to navigation where you can type the path and press go.
Named sessions Create sessions from the Connect dialog to define specific preferences for different hosts or for different purposes on the same host.
Common settings location All application settings are stored in a common location, allowing you to easily move settings between machines. This allows you to easily carry Red Bird SFX with your configuration on removable media or USB drive.
Common settings stored remotely All application settings are stored in a remote location, allowing you to easily move settings between machines without having to save them to that machine.
Multiple Operation System support Red Bird SFX has been tested under Macs, Linuxes, Unixes, Windows (95, 98, Me, 2000, 2003, XP), and even Windows Vista, so when you are ready to move to a new Operating System no worries, Red Bird SFX will be compatible.
