A good ssh gui client


Hi everyone.
i'm spending a lot of time looking for a good ssh client, that i can manage my conections (lots of them).
I've tried gnome-sshmenu, putty, secpanel, gnome connection manager, wine+securecrt.
But i need a gui client that i could create and manage hosts/connections separately and organized by categories and sub-categories.

Like this:
Code:
+ City 01
  + location 01
  + location 02
    - server 01
    - router 01

Anyone know such application?
I really appreciate any answer for this.

UPDATE 1: A client with telnet connection capability too, if possible.
UPDATE 2: For my linux desktop.

It's not built into PuTTY but I did once find an add-on that allowed you to at least see all the devices in one big screen instead of scrolling down the page the way PuTTY does it by default. I forget the name of it. I think it may have allowed you to categorize as well. When I switched laptops I didn't put it back on myself but it might help you.

Unfortunately when my prior laptop blew up I never went and got the download so I'm not sure what it was called.

Doing a Google search I found:
http://puttycm.free.fr/cms/

That doesn't look like the one I recall but it may be better for all I know.

Edit: The one below looks as if it is more along the lines of what you want:
http://puttysm.sourceforge.net/

No - sorry - I don't use PuTTY from within Linux/UNIX.

It seems it would be possible to create yourself something using something like the "dialog" command and its "--menu" option but I haven't done it.

Personally, I just use the ssh command from a gnome terminal (I know, that's old school).

But I do use tabs to group several sessions in one window (use Ctrl/PageDown to cycle)
I also edit terminal profiles to change the background colors, and I also edit terminal titles.

This all helps to keep things tidy in my desktop, I only wish I could have a custom icon in each gnome-terminal profile, so that i can easily spot which window is which without reading the title (feature was removed a few years ago.

Now under windows I've used putty in the past, but now I use tunnelier instead. (well, I spend 99% of my time under Linux, so can't really say I use tunnelier)

Screen?

It's not an ssh client, but you can tile multiple screens in one session.

I use Remina

It has tab functionality and can be slightly customized. It is in the Ubuntu repos. I like that I can connect to Windows and Linux clients, set color depth and other options. I can use VNC within it or RDP for Windows or SSH. Nice and compact client. Worth a try.

actual package name is remmina.
It looks interesting and I've just installed it (under fedora 13), I've seen it does rdp and vnc. Not sure yet if it does ssh though

I thought the option for a tree view might give the segmentation you wanted. I caught my typo too late. Nice client and it meets my needs. I don't know if it will meet yours or not.
