I want to connect to my job computer. IT offers Java applet for SSH connection.

Problem - this Java MindTerm app really sucks. Can't copy, save etc. What I want:

1. Is is possible to use another Java app (MindTerm is the default and their are no other options);

2. Is it possible to connect via my linux terminal?

Looking forward

From the terminal, just running ssh <user>@<server> should be enough. The server address should be in MindTerm's configuration. – grawity Mar 23 '12 at 23:14
Thanks! That works. – rupert Mar 23 '12 at 23:18

If you know the server name (which should be somewhere in MindTerm's configuration), you can connect directly from your terminal using OpenSSH:

ssh <user>@<server>

From a Windows machine, you can use PuTTY.
