The openssh package can do this from a terminal. The command is ssh as expected.

Closing due to lack of response for 30 days.

I really like to have this package as the PuTTY client would allow me to perform SSH tunneling without having to use the terminal. Opened for re-evaluation.

Well. Wanting to use PuTTY to not have to use the terminal, in order to get to another machines terminal, seems quiet the niche request.

I was not even aware that PuTTY was a thing on linux.

Would love to see PuTTY in Solus. Use it daily for console access.

It looks easy enough to package. Maybe consider this an opportunity to try your hand at packaging? You'll get to scratch your own itch AND that of the others here? =)

I use PuTTY for console access to routers/switches, since most of it use ^H as backspace. With PuTTY I can configure it as default backspace, and then with the pterm package (PuTTY terminal emulator), I can use regular ssh and telnet command lines to access switches and routers and the backspace will work like a charm, without the need of workarounds like the proposed here:

@baimafeima: Any progress on this? =)

@ermo Thanks for your encouragement. I also hope that I will at some point move from requesting packages to actually building packages. I've actually looked at the packaging instructions in the help center today but found all of them too complicated to follow them in any meaningful way. They assume too much knowledge I currently do not have, so either I need to hang around in this community for another year or so to acquire that kind of knowledge or the instructions should assume as little knowledge on part of the user so that not only I could get into it but also my grandma. Until then I'll stick to package requests and bug reports. :D

@baimafeima just create a virtual machine with solus and try with simple packages. Look at the video on the Solus youtube channel. The videos are very good for starting because you see all the steps and try them on your side. The documentation on the help center is more there to help setting up the environnement and then to be used as a reference. The hardest is to start. Once you jumped in and try by yourself, you'll see it is not so complicated!

DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

I think remmina can do the same, but it has way more options and Windows-switchers are used to it.
Do you want to reopen D1637 @DataDrake?

I'm not reopening a patch from someone I haven't seen on the tracker in awhile.
