SSHChain Source Code and Building Instructions
Download SSHChain Project Files (420KB gzipped tar archive)
The SSHChain project is compatible with Xcode 2.4 (Tiger) or 3.0 (Leopard). The project specifies GCC 4 for both PowerPC and Intel architectures, so the resulting application will require Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. (However, SSHChain will probably build fine with GCC 3.3, if support for an earlier version of Mac OS X is required.)
There are two targets in SSHChain.xcodeproj:
SSHChainHelpertarget builds the actual SSHChain background application, called SSHChainHelper.app. This is where all the functionality lives. (See here for more information on SSHChainHelper.)
SSHChaintarget builds a thin wrapper, SSHChain.app, which when double-clicked, triggers the helper to open its Preferences dialog. SSHChainHelper.app will be copied into the SSHChain.app bundle when the
SSHChaintarget is built.
SSHChain depends on
SSHChainHelper, so it is
sufficient to build the former.
