    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
  • You can save SSH sessions in Terminal.app: dl.dropbox.com/u/65809/Screenshots/… – Chris Serra Aug 29 '11 at 13:02

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.

  • I do use the installed terminal I am looking for that nice feature though of not having to type: ssh -l USENAME sub.site.com -p PORT – Daniel Jul 23 '10 at 0:36

Sure there is! God save opensource! You can have it at http://putty.darwinports.com/. Don't forget to install Xcode first...

Oh, there is JellyfisSSH too...
