Under device center, I can use the tool telnet, but I would like to use ssh. Is there a way to adapt this? (something like customisation of the tools window)

or where do I find ssh to access a device (via CLI)like one can do with telnet?

I use LMS 2.6 on windows 2003

Any suggestions are welcome.

This is a rather frequently asked question. Unfortunately, SSH is not doable from Device Center because most common browsers do not support an ssh:// protocol handler. You can, however, launch SSH from Campus Manager Topology Services since that uses client-sided Java, and is able to launch SSH directly.

If you're looking for a good SSH utility for Windows, I recommend PuTTY:
