This page http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/faq.html#faq-mac-port  says there is a version running on the Mac OS X as an X11 application.  I'm not sure what that means.

You can just use terminal in the applications, utilities folder. Mac OS X is Unix underneath, hence the built in feature.

I can confirm that JellyFish is a worthy utility that does many of the things that Putty does.   I use it all the time to access various servers.  It is a little clunky, but it makes it pretty easy to set up terminal sessions with remembered parameters (and passwords).

As gmbaxter has pointed out, just open your terminal.app and type "ssh user@ipAddress"
