What's your favorite SSH client to connect to UNIX/Linux machines?

I am curious about the most popular ssh client on Windows environment. Talking about me, I use PuTTY most of the time coupled with WinSCP to transfer files. But, I like Tera Term too. It has great drag-drop feature where you can drag a file/folder and drop on the window and it will transfer the file/directory to the host you are connected to. Good one!

What about you people? Smilie

I use putty all the time. The only allowed alternative in my company is tectia client which I find completely annoying
# 3  
xshell for me..
+ Tab sessions
+ broadcast commands
+ open FTP session

I used to use SSH Secure Shell, Version 3 (the free version - before commercial version). Excellent. I still keep a copy if I need to use SSH in a Windows machine "on the road" although I do not own any Windows machines anymore (replaced by last Windows laptop with a MacBook Air and very happy with that decision!)

You can download SSH Secure Shell, Version 3 here. (Manual attached)

@Neo

Thank you for the link to download. It looks good to me. I'll use it a little bit more and see. I wish my employers would give me an Apple MacBook instead of Lenovo ThinkPad Smilie

@zxmaus

In my company PuTTY and Tera Term are the only options.

@dagio

It looks like you gotta pay to have xshell!! Don't they have an open source version? Smilie

I use putty, and Anita, http://www.april.se because of its extended features. Many terminal emulators fail on function key usage and character translation.

Mine is ZOC, but it is not named here ;-)
