Is there a Putty (SSH GUI) for Linux?


I searched around and came up empty. Is there a GUI similar in function to Putty, but available for Linux?

GUI ssh client

You can turn a regular terminal emulator into an ssh client
by giving it an ssh command to perform. You can build this
right into your menu item or panel launcher or whatever, give
it an icon befitting its purpose, create a terminal class for it
and set it up with different foreground and background from
regular (local) terminals, whatever. For example, I use Gnome,
and on my Gnome panel (well, on one of the drawers actually)
there's a launcher with this command:
gnome-terminal -t pedestrian --tab-with-profile=pedestrian --name=pedestrian -x ssh pedestrian

Clicking that launcher results in a window that uses the
"pedestrian" terminal class (so the background is soft blue
and the icon has a pair of blue shoes; this helps me to
easily recognise it in the task list or when switching between
windows), and it immediately shells into pedestrian (another
system on my local network) and prompts me for my password.
At work I have a similar setup for sshing into the cgi server.

This is significantly *better* than Putty or ttssh, because X11
forwarding works, so I can launch GUI apps on the remote
system and they display on my screen where I am. (Though,
you may not want to try that over a dialup connection, as it
can involve slowness. Works great over a LAN.)

Or can't you simply use Xterm and type in;

ssh 1.2.3.4

That's how I ssh to another box while I'm on Linux

This works fine, but what if you had multiple accounts on the remote server and wanted to log in under different usernames? Wouldn't this mean you need to create an icon for every different username? PuTTy will prompt you for a username when you log in to a server.

Is there anyway to set this up (with terminal/ssh client) so you will be prompted for a username, i had a look at the man pages but couldn't find it?

The easiest way to accomplish this would be to wrap the ssh
command in something that prompts for a username and feeds
the result to the -l option of ssh. (I've never had to do this
because I generally use the same username everywhere, or
at least the same on any given system, but I can understand
why that might not always be so.) You can also have it ask for a
hostname if it isn't passed one on the commandline, so that you
can set up a launcher for sshing to wherever. For example,
try pasting the script below into /usr/local/ssh-prompt-for-user
and chmoding it +x and having gnome-terminal execute _that_
instead of calling ssh directly. Here's a sample wrapper script:

#!/usr/bin/perl
($remotehost, $remoteuser) = @ARGV;
if (not $remotehost) {
print "Enter domain name or IP address of remote host ==> ";
$_=<STDIN>; chomp; $remotehost=$_;}
if (not $remoteuser) {
print "Enter username for $remotehost login ==> ";
$_=<STDIN>; chomp; $remoteuser=$_;}
exec "ssh $remotehost -l $remoteuser";
