    I know absolutely nothing about SSH connections, so please answer in basic terms as best as you can. :)

    I'm in the process of helping my wife switch from Windows to Mac. The only missing piece of the puzzle so far is that she needs to connect to remote servers via SSH, the same way she did with Putty on Windows.

    From searching this forum, I've determined that I should just be able to launch a terminal window and type ssh 123.456.789.0. Okay, simple enough, but, she's never going to remember the IP addresses she needs to connect to.

    In Putty, she just launched the program, selected an office to connect to by name, and connected. How do I achieve something similar in a terminal window?

    In terminal

    Select 'Shell'>'New Remote Connection'

    you can then select the type of connection and use the '+' sign to add destinations

    Anyway to specify the port (as opposed to default 22) and log the session to a file?
