In my opinion, the best SSH client ever is PuTTY Tray. It was originally compiled by Barry Haanstra and can be found here. Recently, the developers of the original PuTTY released version 0.61, which contains an important bugfix for anyone using PuTTY with serial ports. I used to use TeraTerm when fiddling with console cables, but it supports only com-ports 1-4. This is unfortunate because the new USB-serial-adapters like to map themselves to higher com-ports (usually 6) by default. Naturally you can change this, but it's just too much of a hassle. With PuTTY, you can use the higher numbers with ease.
Unfortunately, Barry Haanstra has stopped the development of PuTTY Tray, so there is no version 0.61 at haanstra.eu. This is a pity as that site is unsurprisingly the first hit when you Google "PuTTY Tray". However, Cris West is now maintaining PuTTY Tray at http://puttytray.goeswhere.com/. I don't know if this move is official, but at least it's not mentioned at haanstra.eu. Also, puttytray.goeswhere.com doesn't appear as a direct link within the first 10 Google result pages for "PuTTY Tray" (it's there on the first page, but that's a blog entry). In any case, the version of mr. West appears to be working just fine, so I'll just document the URL here. Hopefully it will appear on the Google results someday.
