ssh-client gui similar to putty?


I'm replacing an old win 98 which I used to monitor a group of linux servers with putty.
Now I'm using a DSL (jwm as window manager) linux and I'm opening about 10 xterm with ssh to log into the remotes hosts.
I'd like to find any GUI for ssh-client, something like putty but for Linux.

It may sound extrange but this is the reason why. When there are several xterms with ssh minimized is very usefull knowing which ssh is running in every xterm window. With putty that was possible.

I tried to compile ssh-gui, an application that I found for linux, but It's a little difficult to compile in DSL.

Anybody knows if is there any ssh client for x?

Thanks in advance,
Matías

If having titles is the only reason, you can give these a try:

I have this in my .bashrc
Code:
case $TERM in
    xterm*|rxvt*|Eterm)
        PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033]0;${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:${PWD/$HOME/~}\007"'
    ;;
    screen)
        PROMPT_COMMAND='echo -ne "\033_${USER}@${HOSTNAME%%.*}:${PWD/$HOME/~}\033\\"'
    ;;
esac

Thanks!

I've found the deb packets for putty and I installed. That's alright.

I will try the second approuch, giving names to xterms. That's interesting. I'll try it.

Thanks a lot
