Not bad

AbsoluteTelnet is a Telnet client that has the capacity to establish direct connections with COM ports, SSH and VT100 emulators

The utility includes options for firewalls and supports a SOCKS proxy.

It also includes features, printing and logging options. There's not much that distinguishes this from other Telnet utilities except that you can customize colors and fonts and it supports Modem transfers.

It does also integrate into Windows shell meaning it can be accessed simply by right clicking and selecting the program from the context menu.

The developers have added an in integrated SFTP client in this latest release which means you no longer have to start an external file transfer application to transfer your files which is another plus.

They also urge anyone who wants to test a mobile version of this to get in touch with them which would certainly be an interesting evolution for the Windows Mobile platform although whether it's necessary or not I'm not so sure.

A solid Telnet application that features a built in SFTP client and plenty of customisation tools to make it worth trying if you're bored of you current client.

SSH, SFTP, and Telnet in a powerful tabbed interface. Lots of terminal types and authentication options.

AbsoluteTelnet/SSH is a FIPS validated SSH terminal client that also supports telnet, SFTP, dialup, and serial connectivity in dockable tabbed multi-session interface or the classic single-session interface. A wide range of emulations are provided, including VT100, VT220, VT320, XTERM, WYSE60, ANSI, SCO-ANSI, ANSI-BBS, and QNX. Packed with options such as SOCKS5, IPV6, Arabic shaping, BIDI (bidirectional text), and IDNA (International Domain Names for Applications), Absolute is sure to support the technology you need! Absolute supports single-sign-on capability through advanced authentication features such as smartcard and GSSAPI (ActiveDirectory, Kerberos, and NTLM). Encryption options such as Blowfish, Twofish, AES, Arcfour, 3DES, Cast128, IDEA, and RC4 provide maximum security in today's insecure environments. SFTP, Xmodem, ymodem, and zmodem protocols provide extensive file-transfer support. Also supports serial ports greater than COM9 and has a variable scrollback size.
