In the transition to OS X for my work laptop I’ve found one thing that’s been kind of annoying. No Putty! Putty is great for managing SSH and Telnet sessions on the Windows side. On OS X I was happy with Terminal but it has no bookmarking ability. I looked at iTerm but it seemed kind of cumbersome for the simple task I was looking for.
Then I found JellyfiSSH on Apple’s software website. Perfection. It doesn’t do much but it does it very well. Simple bookmarking with session characteristics retained. So now I can have bookmarks for all of the regular servers/routers/switches and I can have each of them a different color. It doesn’t try to over reach and do too much like iTerm.
Now, if I could just figure out a good console solution… I know, minicom or Zterm. Yuck. There’s got to be a better way.
