Windows Equivalent to Putty/Telnet

A stupid question but:
I'm used to working remotely on a Unix/Linux machine by logging into it with Putty or Telnet.  I need to do the same thing with a Windows machine - log into to it remotely and then copy files, edit Java files, run scripts, use isql.

How do I do this on a Windows machine?  I believe it's an XP Professional, but I'm not sure.

I'd stay away from Telnet for security reasons.  Stick with SSH which is in many ways just a secure telnet.  

For windows WinSSHD is a great product for your needs.  Only drawback: $99.  http://www.bitvise.com/winsshd

In the free category is freeSSHd.  http://www.freesshd.com/

Also free and ubiquitous is Cygwin but I don't think I would recommend it if you new to this.

There are others but this list is a good place to start.

Hope It Helps.

Why not just use Remote Desktop?  Free, full GUI.

Putty is an SSH CLIENT, right ?  I interpreted the OP's question to mean that he was looking for a telnet SERVER solution.

I don't think the OP is looking for a client.  Am I wrong ?
