What do you Telnet with?

By TomSal ·
Hi all. I just finished the better part of my day configuring Cisco 1601 routers and 2924XL switches, which got me to thinking about something.

What do you use to Telnet into your Switches/Routers with? I was just using good ol' HyperTerminal.Are there any cheap or freebie popular Telnet packages that are better than HyperTerminal that you like to use?

If so could you provide me the address to download them from?

HyperTerm gets the job done of course, but its very plain Jane.

Just curious.

Thanks.

Two ends of the scale...

From the Windows command prompt: TELNET
This is real basic, even more so than Hyperterm. For a quick in'n-out it's "the bees knees".

At the other end: Hummingbird Exceed
A bit costly, and only recommended if you need some of the thousands (er, dozens) of other components that come with this (like the X-client, 3270 emulation, etc., etc.

Be aware that Microsoft's telnet utility sends password info in plain text format. I would not use it in a public domain.
