a non techy question - how to pronounce SSH

Dear How to pronounce SSH ?
I used to pronounce ssh, as S S H, i.e I pronounce every letter separately .. as we pronunce IP, SSL, SMTP.

but sometimes I have heard people pronouncing SSH as "SHEESH".

Please help me what is wrong/right ?

Regards

Re: a non techy question - how to pronounce SSH

As far as I'm aware, there is no correct way of pronouncing 'SSH'.

I'm of the individual-letter variety myself, but I tend to do that for most protocols without easily pronouncable words (unlike i-map and pop pop, s-m-t-p, s-q-l (although that's pronouced sequal)).

Shalom,

I've never heard it pronounced like that Maaz.

Never.

Sometimes I call it Secure Shell because that is the name HP gives it when they ported it to HP-UX.

Just SSH to me.

Hi Maaz,

I've always used the individual letters S-S-H.

I've never head "SHEESH" being used anywhere...

Cheers,

Hello Maaz,

# man ssh --> OpenSSH SSH client (remote login program)

# man sshd --> OpenSSH SSH daemon

Thanks
