I've successfully switched to Console2 on my Windows box, and I'm quite satisfied with that. (If you don't know it, try it: it lets you group both cmd.exe and Cygwin sessions in the same, tabbed window).
Now I'd like to integrate my PuTTY sessions too.
I could use plain ssh in Console2, but I need 256 colors (xterm-256) for my fancy remote vim setup :-). Here's the question: how can I setup a ssh client through Console2 to support 256 colors ?
I'm currently using Putty Connection Manager for that, and it is almost good enough, even if it doesn't look too stable.
