Hi guys!


Currently, I am developing a NetduinoPlus application in C# (over Visual Studio 2010 enviroment).

I have installed all necesary features for this:

 - .NET Microframework SDK 4.1 (QFE1)

 - Netduino SDK


Also, this application requires the ssh service to perform several tasks. Then I downloaded a C# library called "RenciSSH" from here.


The trouble comes when I trying to add the Renci.Ssh library reference to the NetduinoPlus solution (I added that library as "Existing project").
It showing the following warning: "Referenced project 'Renci.Ssh' is targeted to a different framework family".
It is right because the Renci.Ssh project is targeted to .NET MicroFramework v4.0 while my main project (NetduinoPlus app) is being targeted to .NET MicroFramework v4.1
I wondering if there is a way to use a C# library targeted on earlier versions in NetduinoPlus applications which are targeted to v4.1 MF.
Sorry for my English, I am from Argentina.

Hi Arthur,

It looks like that library is targeted to .NET 4.0 (the full desktop .NET), rather than .NET Micro Framework.

.NET Micro Framework is a subset of the full desktop framework.

Can you give us a bit more info on what you're trying to accomplish generally? And then we might be able to point you in a good direction?

Thanks you for responding Chris!


I need to send an unix command via ssh protocol... for instance, send shutdown signal if some conditions become true like high temperature in a device which resides in a remote cluster.


IMPORTANT DATA: Some months ago I have accomplished working with the Renci.Ssh library in a NetduinoPlus application but it was over a different scenario. That time, the SO was Windows 7 (32bits) and the framework was Netduino SDK 4.1 (32bits).

Now, I am working over Windows 8 and Netduino SDK 4.1 (64bits). I dont know if this has any importance but I remember that I could build the solution with the Renci.Ssh reference and it worked/ran correctly.
