First a quick overview of situation. Replaced three old 486 Windows machines with Mac Minis. Main use is connecting to our ERP system, taking orders from customers live over the phone. Trouble is, the java front end to ERP system is slower using Safari than it was in IE on a 486!!! (the mind boggles - actually, it doesn't, I blame Sun for bloating the java run-time). OK, remaining Win clients use Putty and it's lightning fast (ERP is running on RedHat server, putty logs in with SSH and only returns text to the Putty client). I know OS X has a terminal, however, I've been trying for the last two years to get an Xterm on a Linux box to play ball and I still can't so I don't expect to make a Mac terminal step in line any quicker. I do, however, know how to make Putty work. So, I've installed X11, I've installed the software to build stuff (gcc, etc.) but Putty won't build (no GTK - or, more likely, libgtk). I installed Darwin Ports but that can't find a GTK to install. Any ideas? Anyone built and running Putty? Oh, in case you don't know what I'm talking about here's Putty. It does, according to the FAQ build as an application that will run under X11 on OS X. Thanks for any help you can give.
