ssh-client : download from http://downloads.its.psu.edu/, there follow the link "Connecting to Penn State" and then "File Transfer". This program is a must, without it nothing goes. But remember, it can only transmit text between your computer and the linux server. For me personally, this the only program I need if I use my computer at home.
Wireless 2.0 : download from https://www.work.psu.edu/access/dot1x/prod/. This program you need if you wish to connect your computer wirelessly while on any campus of Penn State for any purpose. Hence, this is what you need when you want to use SSH to connect to the linux server. NOTE : Wireless 2.0 will work on your computer only if a 802.11 wireless capable network card is present on your computer. Got to purchase one in this case.
vpn : download from https://www.work.psu.edu/access/vpn/ Although PennState has upgraded now to the more secure "Wireless 2.0" program many Internet Service Providers have not. Therefore, chances are high that you need this program as an alternative to "Wireless" if you wish to establish a graphic-capable connection at your home (for example) or at many other places.
VNC-view : follow this link vnc-viewer
Start --> All Programs --> Internet Applications --> Communications --> SSH Secure Shell 3.2.9 --> Secure Shell Client
After your first usage you will find a direct link to "Secure Shell Client" in your Start Menu as a welcome shortcutEither way, the SSH window will pop up.
