The source code is available on their website, though I don't see any significant advantage of using it over than using the openssh client.

I'd have to agree w/ Demonbane, putty is a great portable ssh client for windows but as far as Mandrake goes just open a terminal and type

#ssh -l username hostnameoripaddress

thats a lowercase "L" not a pipe.

that'll get ya connected via openssh.


In the game of life it takes a root prompt to really foul up.

Is there a way to save a session so I dont have to keep on typing in the Host Names when I try to log-in?

I just want to be able to click on a session host name and thats it. How can I save a session in the built-in Telnet in Mandrake?

You can look into kde's kssh terminal which can remember settings from a drop down box, or FYI, putty will absolutey run under wine if you have that going.

You can install bash completion to complete hostnames, or use shell aliases etc

If you are using bash... just go into your .bashrc file and type in

alias sshserver='ssh username@servername'

you can rename sshserver to something simple if you'd like... just make sure it doesn't conflict with another program name.
You can probably use 'ss'

Or if you want a clickable icon... you can just make a new link on your desktop (if you are using one) with the same execute command 'ssh username@servername'
