Generally, I recommend using Putty to access Linux/UNIX from Windows XP.
Poderosa is terminal emulators for ssh and telnet protocol with following features:
=> Tabbed style GUI – You can open multiple ssh or telnet connection at the same time from a single window (just like firefox).
=> Moreover, you can split the window into panes and allocate each connection.
=> It also supports local cygwin shell and serial ports (great for testing and troubleshooting)
=> Includes SSH2 port forwarding tool, SSH Key generation wizard, SOCKS connection etc.
Poderosa requires .NET Framework 2.0 and works with Windows Me, 2000, XP, and NT4.0.

However, I still recommend putty, here is why:
- Putty small size
- No need to install .NET freamwork
- I am using putty since last 4-5 years and it is one of the best windows program.
