What OS? Are you asking about server-side or client-side? – Alex May 25 '10 at 12:03
Ssh. Openssh. PuTTY. Cygwin...kind of depends on your available OS. Linux LiveCD's usually have SSH on them...what OS are you talking about? – Bart Silverstrim May 25 '10 at 12:25

For windows there's PuTTy

for any *ix OS try typing: ssh

Thank you. Helpful. – Ryoumanosuke May 25 '10 at 8:42

OpenSSH, is the ssh that is sent with all linux dists and the bsd-unix:es.

It is quite wasy to use.

Methinks OP is asking about Windows, seeing as everything else almost always comes pre-installed with the ssh command. And on Windows, PuTTY is based on this, and that was already mentioned, so meh. – marcusw May 26 '10 at 17:40

On Mac and Linux start a terminal and run "ssh user@host" but I guess you'd have figured that out already if you were using one of those.

On Windows, Putty is commonly known as the ssh client although I personally prefer poderosa [1].
