Why not just use a conventional ssh or telnet client in an Xterm or other terminal emulator? If you are using Fedora, the terminal emulators there support cut & paste, and have settable fonts and sizes.

^ well I would love to but that brings up bigger issue, how could I use my ssh-key with terminal ?

1-key wasn't created on my linux box it was e-mailed to me.

Thanks.

You do this by adding files in the ~/.ssh directory. See http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/

^ Thank you.
I read the article
My key had a name
mykey.ppk
Code:
#cd .ssh
# mv mykey.ppk id-dsa
#chmod 700 id_dsa
# ssh -o PreferredAuthentications=publickey 192.xxx.xxx.xxx
Enter passphrase for key '/home/ahmad/.ssh/id_dsa':
when I enter my passphrase, it same prompt comes back(pass phrase works well with putty+private key )
Code:
Enter passphrase for key '/home/ahmad/.ssh/id_dsa':
