I always used Putty, a great SSH client for Windows, to connect to my Sun servers securely and safely. You can have a list of connections in a screen and connect wth a click of a mouse button. But I’m trying to use my new Mac for al my tasks so I set out looking for a new “graphical” client to use SSH. I knew that I could do a SSH from the command-line of the Terminal but I found that to cumbersome, you can’t have a list of session. So after some googling I couldn’t find one and went to a forum of Mac users, searched that one and came up empty. So I posted a question in the forum. Got a great tip I’d like to share with you:

  • Put the terminal in the dock
  • Click and hold the left mouse button on the terminal icon

  • In the menu that appears, click on the “Connect to server…” option
  • A small window appears where you can manage your SSH connections and connect to any server with a mouseclick, just like I used to do with Putty.

I hope you like this solution as much as I do, if you have another good solution for this leave a comment.
