XP - Linux terminal


How can I log into a remote Linux server from a XP machine and have a terminal that looks like a Linux terminal command line?

If it is just a remote shell you are after, I use PuTTY. There are others but their names escape me at the moment.

Then just drop in the IP and go; it defaults to SSH (or at least the version I have at work does)

Putty is the easiest way to do it (based on how I like to do stuff with windows anyway).

I also have cygwin installed on a couple of boxes. It gives a "Linux-like environment" to work from as well as the ssh client to connect to your Linux box.
