PuTTY in your hands: SSH client gets patched after RSA key exchange memory vuln spotted


Give me a good alternative

In my situation, I teach lots of kids (loosely defined) how to configure Cisco equipment. Putty is the only solution I know of that handles serial connections and has a GUI for the kids to learn on (Linux only please). I ween them off as soon as possible and get them using SSH from the command line once they understand what they are doing and know how to enable SSH on Cisco equipment, but at the most basic level when they are setting up "fresh" equipment, Putty is the only real choice. Does anyone have a practical Linux alternative?
