Question Connect to UNIX server with Visual Basic

Is there any possibility to develop an application using Visual Basic that connects to a unix server (using SSH) and run some commands?

I will try to describe what i need :
The user should enter the server adress, username and password!
Than the user must enter some "filenames" and after pressing a button the application will run a command (e.g more "filename") and generates an output file with the result of his command!

Sorry for my bad bad english, and hope that you've understand what i want!

thanks a lot for your help, but the application must be developed by me, because i have to do a lot of customization! I have some gaps regarding the code that i need for connecting trough ssh, and how to make the application to run commands on the server!

Still need help,
Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english!!

Is there anyway to "invoke" Putty in my application and use it to connect, send commands... etc..

Instead of PuTTY itself, try invoking the commandline PSCP. Much easier to invoke that than something graphical.

You could get what you wanted a lot faster with google, but...

You can get pscp here. You can find pscp's documentation here.

You can run programs from VB with the ExecCmd command, or the old Shell command, see here.
