Windows to Mandrake 9.2 terminal emulator

I have WinXP Pro on one PC and Mandrake 9.2 Linux on another. I am currently evaluating Powerterm Lite terminal emulator to be able to login to the linux system from my windows terminal. It seems to be connecting (only on Port 21), but the thing is I cannot type anything, i've even tried the F-keys and still nothing. I understand that there maybe no login & password prompt like when you're connecting to unix platforms but I need an emulator so I can run commands and scripts in the linux system using the windows terminal. From linux terminal I can 'ftp' files to & from the windows, and from windows terminal I can 'telnet' the linux system (again using port 21) but only the telnet commands are working (like ftp commands in ftp connection). Please help.
Does anyone knows a better matching terminal emulators from WinXP to Mandrake systems?
