Net::SSH is a pure-Ruby implementation of the SSH2 client protocol,  
allowing Ruby scripts to interact with remote processes via SSH.

Version 1.0.3 is a windows-specific maintenance release that  
(hopefully) fixes the problem with connections failing if the PuTTy  
pageant process is not running.

You can install it via rubygems (gem install net-ssh) or grab a  
tarball or zip file from http://rubyforge.org/projects/net-ssh.

Documentation is available at http://net-ssh.rubyforge.org.
