Anyone know of a FREE Telnet client for OS-X

Been using NiftyTelnet but now thats the only thing I run in classic, so would like to step up.

Yes I know I could use Terminal, but it's for a lab computer without access to Terminal for security reasons.

I found a couple already but they all work through Terminal. :(

I'd prefer Freeware, but may buy if it works well.

Many use the built in Telnet because its there. Not much point writing software for an OS that already does it. There's not much a user can do with ther terminal unless theyre authorized to do so. Why not just let them use it?

Have you thought of ssh? I only mention it cause telnet sends your PASSWORD over the net UNENCRYPTED. I think in os X in the termainal you can just type ssh and it will load up the program, and also, it runs just like telnet, only more secure!
