Re: recommend a secure shell client for Windows


I have both putty and SecureCRT, here's my oppinions:

better color terminal emulation
Un*x like cut & paste mouse events
More Un*x like feel
also has available scp client, though you don't need putty to get

Better port forwarding
More Windows-like (pulldown menus etc)
Relatively inexpensive, 30 day trial

I use SecureCRT mostly for windows clients at the lab who need
transparent X forwarding.

I use putty at home (exclusively though I do have SecureCRT
installed), if I need an X display I just set $DISPLAY, since teh
windoze box is completly firewalled off (only net connection via Squid
proxy on the real machine), who cares.
