Do any of your tools all for the use of openssl encryption/decryption from FOXPRO?

Not directly, but you can use wwDotnetBridge for that. We actually ship a .NET openssl library with the client tools (for SFTP support) and that has support for openSSL functionality. But it's basically using that third party library through wwDotnetBridge or a wrapper you create.

What are you looking to do? For basic encryption and hashing the Client Tools include the wwEncryption class which uses various encryption algorithms for various common encryption and hashing scenarios.

Class wwEncryption

These methods do not use the SSH features, but rather than native encryption features built into .NET.

The OpenSSL library used in Client Tools for SFTP and that actually contains most of SSH functionality although we don't use it is here:

OpenSSH.Net

Not sure how easy or hard it would be to access these features directly from FoxPro with wwDotnetBridge - it's probably better to create small wrappers that are easily callable from FoxPro in .NET and then call that instead (as I've done with the SFTP functionality for example).

Hope this helps,
