i use 2 software to access my own virtual private servers, that is putty and bitvise tunnelier, both with its own bad and good
PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.
Putty is lightweigt, but not easy in use, specially u need to enter the password by keybord stroke, rhat you are typing is not show on screen, you can not copy paste the password. Imagine if you have to enter a 13 digit password with letter, capital and normal letter, number and symbol. It can drive you crazy.
Tunnelier is an SSH and SFTP client for Windows. It is developed and supported professionally by Bitvise. Tunnelier is robust, easy to install, easy to use, and supports all features supported by PuTTY, as well as the following:
* graphical SFTP file transfer;
* single-click Remote Desktop tunneling;
* auto-reconnecting capability;
* dynamic port forwarding through an integrated proxy;
* an FTP-to-SFTP protocol bridge.
Tunnelier is free for personal use, as well as for individual commercial use inside organizations.
This one my favorit. very easy usage, not use keybord stroke anymore, sFTP included to have ftp access directly from ssh access. And very easy setting if you want to use your virtual private servers for tunneling
