Yes, it does support sserver on linux. What you are looking at is a chart recommending the most secure, functional, and easy to use protocol in a given situation. Basically, SSH is recommended to non-Windows servers because it is 1) set up by default on most all linux distributions and 2) is extremely secure. SSH isn't recommended on Windows because it requires additional 3rd party software to be installed and (as I recall) has some issue with the username being reported to the history / permissions / auditing functions. -- Glen Starrett
