    Cygwin in Windows and regular terminal in CentOS/RHEL, all combined with screen.
    I upload all files with scp/rsync, I think I used ftp 15 years ago...

    I've been using Putty and Filezilla. I really like Filezilla because it allows me to set global or server specific bookmarks.
    I like the look of SecureCRT, I'll have to check it out.

    I use Transmit for Mac for SFTP - it's great software - and OS X's built in Terminal for all my SSH needs. :)

    I remember when I used Windows, I used a program called SmartFTP (also a very good premium FTP/SFTP client).

    Ah a few Mac users I see heh.

    Still Windows 7 for me desktop and Windows 8 for laptop.

    SecureCRT 7.3 stable release is out SecureCRT - The Usable, Flexible SSH Client - change log at http://www.vandyke.com/products/securecrt/history.txt

    Haven't updated yet but will soon. Can't live with out my button bar shortcuts - handy when you can script and automate anything via one click button activation/process :D

    some examples

    securecrt_buttonbar_openssl_00.png

    securecrt_buttonbar_tungstenreplicator_00.png

    securecrt_buttonbar_sar_00.png

    can even automate fresh Centmin Mod installs via the button bar shortcuts :D

    Panic, the makers of Transmit for Mac, have now also released a version of the app for iOS...and it's absolutely amazing. :D I highly recommend it for any other system administrators with iOS out there. It even allows authentication with your TouchID fingerprint, which is cool.

    They also have a new SSH app called "Prompt 2" which is the best terminal app I have used.

    Prompt 2 is an iOS which I don't think would work for me or others who would need to type a bunch of commands.

    Prompt 2 is only for iOS, so I don't think you can really compare it to those two (unless I'm wrong, neither of those are on iOS).

    I used iSSH for mobile terminal access before I switched to Prompt 2.

    Yeah, it's not a substitute for a full SSH client on a PC. When you need to sign in to your server in an emergency, though, it can be an absolute lifesaver.

    Just last week, I was riding on a bus when my server crashed and I just had my phone. I signed in with Prompt, restarted PHP-FPM, crisis averted. :D

    for SecureFX/SecureCRT users like myself and @Matt what do you think of the new versions passphrase requirement 7.3.3 Maintenance Releases of SecureCRT and SecureFX Add Configuration Passphrase | VanDyke Software can be annoying I suppose
