    I was wondering if anyone here can help me out. I use a SSH/Telnet program called Putty on my PC for my schoolwork. I was wondering if there is a handy program similar to this for Mac. I have been using the Terminal just fine but I really like the ability to remember settings and stuff.

    I am working on switching over and using my Mac exclusively so that is the reason for the inquiry. Thanks a lot.

    Have you tried a google search? I'm sure there are many programs out there.

    Yes, and thanks for the links!

    I said in the OP that I have been using the terminal. Looking for something that can remember my server and display (background/text color) information.

    Terminal.app can remember your display information. If you're not happy with Terminal.app, try Googling for "iTerm" which is a popular replacement (but I'm happy with just Terminal.app)

    And you can "remember your servers" and such with aliases. Put something like this in your ~/.profile file:

    alias myssh='ssh username@host.edu'

    Then you can just type "myssh" to ssh into your school.

    You'll still need to type your password. If you don't want to even do that,
    Google for "ssh key".

    If you need to do sftp, I use Fugu (http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/) which is a graphical sftp client for OS X.

    Good luck!
