PuTTY vs SecureCRT opinions
Some users think PuTTY is a great alternative to SecureCRT, some don't.
Putty is light weight and runs as a standard for all the platform, so no trouble switching the OS.
few features are not there as provoking some other software as Citrix or some other web browsers.
button for shortcuts are not there. basically the GUI features are missing but that would be the cost for lightweight i guess...
OpenSSH is a free version of the SSH connectivity tools that technical users rely on. OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other attacks.
MobaXterm is an enhanced terminal app that brings the advanced features of a Unix-like command-line to Windows. It takes the power of Cygwin and wraps it in a sleek, visual interface that's super easy to use, lightweight and portable.

jineshkaiprath I have tried all alternatives. Yes Putty stands out for simplicity and speed. But no advanced features. ZOC and Xshell are good but MobaXterm stands out. Its free with minor annoyance and no important features missing. It can be customised and is an all in one place for RDP , SSH ( which I use ) and others. So I regard this as the best alternative.
