System administrators or developers use the terminal a lot. This is well known by all. Especially the former, because they base their work on services and applications that run on a server. For security and performance reasons, these servers cannot have a graphical interface so their environment is limited to the terminal. To access them, SSH is normally used in a Linux terminal or a dedicated client. So, in this post, I will tell you about Termius an SSH client that promises to revolutionize and innovate the way we use the protocol.
Looking for an SSH client? Termius is here
Termius is an application that can be installed in multiple systems. That is, it is cross-platform. It has versions for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Its main advantage is that it not only supports SSH but other Telnet or Mosh protocols.
On the other hand, Termius offers us the possibility to synchronize our data between the different versions of the application. Do not worry, its developers say it is secure because it incorporates end-to-end encryption. In addition, Termius gathers commands from all your servers and provides suggestions while you type.
In addition to all this, termius It is Mosh-compatible, providing excellent reliability on high-latency constantly changing connections. This makes it ideal on slow connections or on a 3G mobile network.
With Termius you can do the following:
- Add several hosts. In this way, you simplify the connection process.
- Arrange hosts into groups. These groups can be used not only for the organization but to define a set of defaults for newly created hosts in that group.
- Tags provide a convenient way for you to categorize your hosts.
And many other features that you can consult in the project documentation.
How to install Termius?
As I mentioned before, the application supports several platforms including mobile. In the case of our beloved Linux, the development team provides a Snap-based installer. This has many advantages such as the ease of installation and that we can install it on any distribution that supports snap.
So open a terminal and run the following command:
:~$ sudo snap install termius-app
Then just wait for the application to be installed and start enjoying it.
