This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Since Putty emulates something that is already native on unix-like operating system just open the terminal and type ssh :) – Jack Jul 23 '10 at 1:27

Have you tried Terminal? Open your root volume(usually called Macintosh HD), then Applications, then Utilities, and then Terminal. From there, you can type 'ssh $REMOTE_HOST_NAME', without quotes and replacing $REMOTE_HOST_NAME with the system you want to connect to.
