    Windows SSH Wrapper

    I'm trying to write a simple SSH client in Windows in C++, but apparently SSH requires encryption. I looked at the encryption algorithm and it's like 3,000 lines long! I'm just wondering if there's a wrapper somewhere for Windows SSH.

    I did a bit of Googling and found something called "libSSH2". Has anyone used this, is it what I'm after? I want to be able to simply call a function like "SSHConnect("username","password","server") or something along those lines.

    I'm unaware if there's any wrappers like that available for Windows. Maybe you guys know of a better one or something?

    Thanks!

    Do you HAVE to do this yourself, or is an existing SSH product going to be as good?

    There's something called "putty" that is an implementation of SSH for Windows.
