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.

Download Poderosa

Poderosa requires .NET Framework 2.0 and works with Windows Me, 2000, XP, and NT4.0.
=> Download Poderosa (Size 2028KB)

However, I still recommend putty, here is why:

  • Putty small size
  • Self-executable
  • No need to install .NET freamwork
  • I am using putty since last 4-5 years and it is one of the best windows program.

How about secureCRT?

Never used secureCRT.. can you tells us more about this program

Secure CRT is expensive. Try AbsoluteTelnet Telnet / SSH client from Celestial Software. It has tabs like poderosa and CRT but is less expensive. It includes port forwarding, X forwarding, plus lots of character set translations and terminal emulations. It supports the basic authentications (password, public-key, keyboard-interactive) as well as more advanced ones (smartcard, gssapi, kerberos, activedirectory)

It is fully unicode aware and the UI has been translated into 7 languages! Quite robust and mature.

You can download it here and try it out:

Is there a linux way to save telnet or ssh session with password?


5 Joe February 2, 2008 at 3:48 pm

Andrea: Yes. man ssh-add

or google it and pick one of the 300k results.

You can also try wintabber, it’s a container for app’s like putty, cygwin and others. It just adds tab functionality to existing programs that lack this. Works fine with other ssh clients too.

Has anyone used Poderoda with the SSH2 port fowarding? (X11 fowarding). If so, some info on how to use this would be useful.

I’ve got another connection manager named mRemote, it can be download from its website, release as GPL.

As its homepage says, mRemote is a full-featured, multi-tab remote connections manager.

Support not only SSH, but also RDP (Remote Desktop) VNC (Virtual Network Computing) ICA (Independent Computing Architecture) SSH (Secure Shell) Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork) HTTP/S (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) Rlogin (Rlogin) RAW.
