I have been using AbsoluteTelnet for a little over a month. We use it's SecureShell abilities as a login to our character-based applications on Linux servers. The product has performed exactly as advertised. Although I've had a few issues (i.e., not knowing how to do certain things in AbsoluteTelnet), the support has been excellent and all of the issues I've encountered have been resolved quickly. -- sywyatt
