Is there is SSH client for Windows that has a horizontal scrollbar?

i use PuTTy, and the lack of a horizontal scrollbar is driving me nuts.

Terminator requires extra external libraries to be installed.

Teraterm has comparibale feature set to Putty. After you have installed, you will need to change the terminal settings. You do this by the Setup -> Terminal menu. Uncheck Term size = win size and then you can set the width and height manually. The window will then give you a horizontal scrollbar.

On the downside: if you turn off Term size = win size then the terminal no longer auto-scrolls. Also, dear god, Teraterm is ugly as sin! – Ian Boyd Aug 3 '10 at 12:01
