    Can anyone suggest a good SSH client?

    So far ive been getting by with the basic client via the terminal but i need something that can bookmark.

    Im used to SecureCRT on windows and its a very good bit of software, Ive got all my servers in there as well as a login scripts - for example if i wanted to SU to another user as soon as i login, or run something, its very handy.

    I second Fugu for gui ssh file tranfers. But if you just want ssh command line, just use teminal. And when you come back to terminal, just hit the up arrow on the key pad and it will go back to the last thing you typed, which should be the ssh command that you used last time.

    i use iTerm and the command line SSH client

    type man ssh from the command line and it shows ya how to do that.. i set up aliases in my zsh shell to allow for bookmarks.. works great

    version tracker also has "bookmark" type applications for this as well.. do a search for SSH on versiontracker

    why not just use the terminal or xterm in OS X? Thats what i use if you don't mind the command line. Just type

    ssh -l loginname

    For complete X tunneling,


    a new window will open
    then type
    ssh -X -l loginname

    Just FYI - you can do X11 tunneling with any command-line program: Terminal, iTerm, etc.

    I guess you didn't get the part where he said he currently uses ssh in Terminal. He wants a more robust GUI client.

    Wow, reviving an old thread huh?

    Anyways, I was a big SecureCRT user when I was on Windows, but when I switched to OS X, they were still Windows only, so I had to find something new.

    I came across ZOC and I've been very happy with it.
