I was already aware of this links, but never realized tha citrix could be used as a template for other java packages.

Will look into the, and try to adapt some free java ssh2 & tn5250 client.

Then, release it into the wild.

Thank you

You don't need to find any plugin, just goto the ASA download page, you will find the ssh plugin there.

The ssh plugin on officially released by cisco just support SSHv1.

Most of my internal devices use SSHv2 only, and trying to run the official plugin lead to no-connection.

external java packages (like mindterm, which CANNOT be used for free on commercial) work flawlessy, but must be adapted to Cisco webvpn packaging.

I'm really sorry I forgot that the Cisco plugin only supports SSHV1. Thanks for the clarification.

However just be careful with the third party stuff, it could cause issues with stability (on the ASA) and maybe the TAC will refuse to support your box.
