Ditto - PuTTY has been rock-solid for me. I use it currently on Win2K & WinXP.
If you're having problems using PuTTY the problem is likely elsewhere.
But as this is the FreeBSD mailing list, you can most certainly use the ssh
client here as well: ssh usernam at hostname.whatever.com
One diff I've noticed: In the case of a changed key, PuTTY's default is to
issue a warning, and allow the user to decide whether or not to continue the
connection; the OpenSSH client's default is to abort the connection.
