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
