Rebex Terminal Emulation component is an SSH shell, Telnet and terminal emulation library for .NET languages (such as C# or VB.NET). It makes it easy to execute commands on Unix/Windows SSH or telnet servers and add terminal emulation capabilities to your applications. All popular SSH or telnet servers are supported.

Looking for a standalone SFTP/SSH server for Windows? Try our Buru Server.

Why Rebex Terminal Emulation?

Scriptable Windows Forms terminal control

WinForms terminal control with full Visual Studio designer support. Control it from your code or leave it to your users.

Scriptable headless terminal

Also known as the "invisible terminal". Great for applications that interact with SSH or telnet servers but don't need to display the actual terminal session. Includes powerful terminal scripting API.

Connect with SSH, telnet or serial cable

Connect using telnet or SSH. Reuse your SSH session for SFTP. Multiple authentication modes included - from username/password to private keys and Kerberos. Cable connections over RS-232 serial port are supported as well.

Screen scraping to an image or HTML

Save the screen content as an image, text file or HTML file. Read and write screen content.

VT100, VT52, xterm, ANSI, Pick terminal emulation

Includes emulator of most popular terminals:
  • VT52
  • ANSI
  • VT100 and its successors (VT201, VT220)
  • VT520 and VT525 (most features)
  • xterm (most features)
  • SCO ANSI (experimental)
  • Wise 60 (experimental)
  • Pick (experimental)

SSH Tunelling and port forwarding

SSH tunelling and port forwarding makes it possible to forward traffic for all connections accepted on a local IP/port (at the client) to a remote IP/port through the server (turning the client to a proxy), or the other way around.

Other features

  • Execute commands over SSH channel.
  • Terminal session recording and replay.
  • Box-drawing and block element characters supported for all fonts.
  • Scroll-back buffer support.
  • Events and delegates for effortless integration with your applications.
  • All common firewalls and proxy servers are supported.
