    So what do other folks use for SFTP/FTP client and SSH client apps ?

    For me, I use Vandyke's SecureCRT for SSH http://www.vandyke.com/products/securecrt/index.html and SecureFX for SFTP/FTP http://www.vandyke.com/products/securefx/index.html

    SecureCRT http://www.vandyke.com/products/securecrt/features.html button bar feature is what I use most as you can write your own scripts, code, one liner commands for shortcut buttons to do alot of tasks = saving time :D

    Check out Button bar examples at http://www.vandyke.com/support/tips/button_bar.html

    We switched to SecureCRT when we switched from red hat desktops to windows at work. Was back in 2004 we made the switch. They haven't renewed the licence, so we are still on version 6

    Oh definitely ver 7 is much nicer to use ;)

    Personal data folder comes in handy for syncing in the cloud

    I am syncing my sessions across between my laptop and desktop as such :D

    I'm also using Xshell4 on my own laptop at home, as it's free for home use, and is not far behind SecureCRT.

    Just started using the button bar on the version we have at work. Very basic, as it's an old version (can only add a limited number of buttons, and can only view the "default" selection so far). I'm going to buy a new licence for SecureCRT for myself to use at home when I get back from my holiday.

    Yeah button bar I can't live without.. I've actually written whole install routines for some software straight into the button bar shortcuts. One click and I install some stuff :D Even can write a one liner to run Centmin Mod download and install ;)

    I started using it yesterday, as we previously used to auto login feature to automate logging into certain devices. We've since been firewalled off from directly connecting to them, so have to use a jump box. I've written them to connect via SSH and log me in and run the script we use
