Tabbed SSH/Telnet Client
As a system admin I am using an SSH terminal (PuTTY in most cases) and hate switching between the multiple open sessions I have. So in my search for a tabbed SSH client that was FREE (since I am cheap) I came across two options that fit the bill. The first product is a freeware telnet/ssh terminal utility called Poderosa that is not bad and I use it periodically. I must say that I am a PuTTY fan so I really hoped someone had written a tabbed PuTTY client, but I could not find one. I did, however, come across a nice little utility that lets me have my PuTTY and tabs too...it's called WinTabber and it grabs open windows and places them in tabs within its container window. To better understand I suggest you check out the screenshot on the website. If you have a tabbed based ssh client you would recommend that is free (again because I am cheap) then post a comment and leave a link so I can check it out.
