What tools do you use with Shield?

Me_3594
I am wondering what kind of software / tools you use in combination with shield. This is what I have:

PUTTY 0.67 - Secure telnet client (SSH) to get access to command line and serial cable.
http://www.putty.org/ for Windows and Unix
http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/0.67/htmldoc/ for user manual

KiTTY is a fork of PUTTY 0.66
http://kitty.9bis.net/ 

WINSCP 5.7.7 - Allows file transfer using SCP (Secure copy), SSH and (S)FTP with Shield)
http://winscp.net/eng/download.php#download2 for Windows
http://winscp.net/eng/docs/start for documentation
http://winscp.net/eng/docs/integration_putty for integration with PUTTY

NOTEPAD++ 6.9 - An advanced text editor with hyper markups, replaced the good ol'notepad
https://notepad-plus-plus.org/ for download
http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php?title=Replacing_Notepad for default editor

What do you use with/for your Shield?

Pretty much those same tried and true programs. I've never tried KiTTY though. I also use WinMerge for file compare. I know there's the compare plugin for Notepad++ but WinMerge can do Word & Excel files too so I've just stuck with it. Also 7-Zip for compressed files.

A tool missing in the standard Windows library is to calculate MD5 or SHA1 sums.

Microsoft have released a solution for that, called File Checksum Integrity Verifier utility (FCIV).
You can download it here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/841290


In the CLI you can also run md5sum on a file like so:


root@Shield:/tmp# md5sum hotfix_160309-FINAL.tgz
85a06650bfe47bf4d0c0bf641c0c35b7  hotfix_160309-FINAL.tgz
root@Shield:/tmp#


This "85a06650bfe47bf4d0c0bf641c0c35b7"-code allows you to check if the download is matching the original file or not.
If it does not match, redownload or contact the file creator.

I run Linux, so I was able to take care of all the CLI SSH SCP tasks via my terminal window & Bash.

I did download and ran putty for linux, but I ended up just working in my linux terminal window instead.
