Add SSH service to Nano
Given the headless nature of Nano, please enable a secure remote shell such as SSH in nano. PowerShell remoting is a PITA, and sometimes you just want to quickly run a few commands. SSH is perfect for this.
Thanks to everyone that voted on this item. We are moving this item to the planned stage so you can use your votes elsewhere. There was an announcement today that SSH is in the works for Windows Server at: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/looking_forward_microsoft__support_for_secure_shell_ssh1/archive/2015/06/02/managing-looking-forward-microsoft-support-for-secure-shell-ssh.aspx

Hi Ned, is this planned for the Nano release on 2016, or is this planned for vNext?

SSH for interoperability, sure. But take the time to learn PS Remoting... You won't look back.

That is excellent news! I like the "new" Microsoft. Out with the old closed way of thinking and in with the new.

PowerShell Remoting, over Windows Remote Management (WinRM), is how you run commands remotely on Windows Server and Nano Server. The SSH protocol is not supported.
