AbsoluteTelnet/SSH introduce the tabbed interface in the version 5 line of software.  By using the tabbed interaface, users can gain productivity by eliminating window clutter on the desktop.  All terminal windows are contained within a single top-level application window and accessible through a tabbed window control.  Of course, there's always the option to open multiple top-level windows instead of additional tabs if you wish.

Transfer Options

E-mail Print

This screen allows you to change settings for file transfer options. This program supports Xmodem, Ymodem, and ZModem file transfers. To auto-initiate a recieve on the host end, you can left-click & drag a file into the terminal window and the appropriate "start text" will be sent to the receiver side to begin the transfer using the default transfer method. To choose which transfer method to use, use right-click & drag to drag the file into the terminal window. The default transfer method will be set to the last transfer method used.

I've tried lots of different telnet/ssh clients, and I have two long-time favorites: Putty and Absolute Telnet. Putty, because it's such a quick download that on someone else's machine i can run it without going through an install, and it runs ssh. But for my own machine, the only choice is Absolute Telnet. It stores my password, terminal appearance and connection settings so that it's literally 2 seconds from clicking the icon to being logged in to my remote ssh accounts. It's incredibly customizeable, but not overwhelmingly so. I hardly ever pay for software (I'm embarassed to say), but I like Absolute Telnet so much I've paid for the full version and I'm glad I did. It's important to note that this software is maintained by one guy, Brian Pence, who personally answers people's questions on his online forum and answers email inquiries (he's answered a couple of mine, and always been really helpful). I gotta say, you hardly ever get this kind of commitment and personal touch in software anymore. --Ben Wheeler
