I'm looking for a tabbed SSH client on Ubuntu that supports managing the details of saved connections. An ideal solution would be (like) Putty with tab support.

HotSSH supports tabbing, but I would like more Putty-like options, such as giving saved connections custom names, being able to change details of existing connections (e.g. port; with HotSSH this currently becomes a new session in your history), initiating a session without saving it, deleting a saved session.

Most of my colleagues use and are quite satisfied with PAC Manager. They especially like the cluster connections which send multiple machines the same keystrokes.

  • This looks very promising. Do you know if it supports using the ssh authentication agent instead of specifying the passphrase for your private key? I couldn't find this option. – arjan Feb 5 '14 at 16:49
  • @arjan: My colleagues says that it's supported. Actually it calls the external ssh executable and supports everything that the command line ssh supports (but it does not have GUI for every setting). – palacsint Feb 5 '14 at 18:40

    Looks like something was off the first time I tried. Having loaded my private key with ssh-add and just leaving the passphrase empty works now. – arjan Feb 5 '14 at 20:03
  • I've been using PAC for years and it's very nice. However it completly crashed my local session several times so I'm looking for something else. – greg May 7 '15 at 14:40

I have tried PAC, but I found that Gnome Connection Manager worked better for me.

PAC seemed to have too many buttons and too many options. GCM had a cleaner look while providing similar features to Putty CM.
