Hi All

I am a sysadmin handling a dozen linux server, the thing is that at work I have to work on a Win XP, and I use putty to handle the servers.

The thing is that at time I have around 6 putty windows open in the taskbar, and things can get crowded. On my laptop I am Kubuntu with Yakuake installed.

I wish I could find something like Yakuake for windows, I have seen a couple of apps but all those dont have an ssh extension ?

Wintabber program around that can add tabbing functionality to putty, but I would like to see if I can get a program that does have that shortcut feature F12 ...so that I can get the shell when I want by pressing one key.

What about you sysadmins how do handle multiple ssh sessions on one XP computer

Thx

I don't know of anything similar for m$ OS's, but how about installing vmware server on the XP box, add a kubuntu installation as VM and then use Linux to administer your servers through kubuntu?

well it is an idea..but I think it might be alittle bit overkill ..I have rechecked wintabber..you can use it to tab putty..and you can set opaque..but you need a couple of clicks to tab each window...well there aint nothing like the real deal..I just lov yakuake..lets wait and see if someone knows about some nifty tool ;)

thx
