I'm looking for recommendations for an open SSH application for Mac. I've been using Putty in Windows, and found a couple online but wanted to get people's opinions and find out what you prefer and why?

I use the OSX Terminal application usually
Check your version of OpenSSH by typing
ssh -v

Open in new window

An alternative to OSX Terminal is iTerm2 (http://iterm2.com/) which has some nice bookmarking and scripting options similar to PuTTy

I've heard of a few others such as JellyfiSSH but have never used so cannot comment on them

if you really LOVE PuTTy you can install it on OSX via homebrew or macports

Fast response with additional suggestions like homebrew! I didn't find that in my searches. Thanks so much!
