9 Excellent Open Source Configuration Management Applications
This software automates the configuration of machines to a particular state. Like any other tools, they are designed to solve specific problems in certain ways. The goal is to get a system from whatever state it is in, into the desired state. Configuration management software are the tools of choice for many system administrators and devops professionals.

The tunnels, with local and remote port redirections, can be created, deleted, modified, and individually started and stopped through one simple interface. It is useful for anyone wanting to securely access private services over an encrypted tunnel.
  • Gnome-sshman
    Gnome-sshman is an SSH session manager for GNOME. It is easy and fast to use, and is useful for system administrators that need to connect to many SSH servers. Gnome-sshman saves ssh sessions and allows you to open a saved session with a double click in nautilus or opening a new session running gnome-sshman.

  • Quest OpenSSH
    Quest OpenSSH is a version of OpenSSH modified and packaged to provide default single sign-on capability for customers using Quest's Vintela Authentication Service (VAS) and/or Vintela Management eXtensions (VMX) products. Quest's version of OpenSSH defaults to authenticating users and hosts with GSSAPI. It works in conjunction with VAS, to allow secure shell single sign-on to Unix hosts joined to Active Directory domains.
  • RSTunnel

  • Twisted Conch
    Conch is an SSHv2 implementation written in Python. SSH is a protocol designed to allow remote access to shells and commands, but it is generic enough to allow everything from TCP forwarding to generic filesystem access. Since conch is written in Python, it interfaces well with other Python projects, such as Imagination. Conch also includes a implementations of the telnet and vt102 protocols, as well as support for rudamentary line editing behaviors.
  • Vintela OpenSSH
    Vintela OpenSSH is a version of OpenSSH modified and packaged to provide default single sign-on capability for Vintela customers using the Vintela Authentication Service (VAS) and/ or Vintela Management eXtensions (VMX) products.
