Hi !

SSH, as a command-line tool, requires that you use the Terminal in order to connect to a remote server. In order to transfer data through SSH by using a GUI, you may want to look at third-party applications like Fugu (

The message you see is likely to appear when you use the "Connect to server" menu, available through the Finder. However, by using it, you are establishing an AFP connection : the Finder is merely informing you that the computer to which you are connecting does not support SSH tunneling for the AFP connection. Unless you are establishing a connection to a specially configured AFP server, this is expected behavior and does not indicate an issue.

Let me know if this helps!
