Poderosa can do most of the things that PuTTY can - but best about Poderosa is the other things that it can do - the things that the standard PuTTY can't.
It has plugins for serial-port connections and xzmodem - quite nice if you ever need console access to a device. Poderosa also contains a Cygwin loopback connection feature that enables you to run local cygwin sessions in a decent terminal emulator. Poderosa is the perfect companion to PuTTY.

I've used Poderosa constantly for the past three weeks, and haven't noticed any stability problems. Only complaint I have is no support for "-" or pgdn, to make it easier to switch between sessions (yes, I know about "-#" - it's not the same). Minor issue, at best.

I'm not really sure why some of the ratings are so low for this tool, but if you're a frequent terminal user(telnet, ssh, hyperterminal) like I am, this absolutely does the job.

The terminal is customizeable, and it lets me manage the network devices I've always needed serial & remote connections to. I've tried SecureCRT, putty, and the standard Windows tools. I'm settling on this one.

The plug-in system is an excellent idea--who knows what this thing can support in the future. My only gripe is a minor one--it doesn't seem to have a "capture text" feature in the main menu. You can still pull captured output from the log files, but a quick menu item would be a lot faster & better (thus the 4 stars and not 5).

I find this very useful and quiet easy to use as its multi tabular..But can anyone tell me how to search for a particular text in the console window(as we use ^f in text editor)?

I would say this is one of the best emulator available freely currently. The shortcuts available and highly configurable environment and Eclipse like plug-in architecture is the best part.
There is some development going on in it at source-forge.
Thanks to Dev Team!!!!

Talented client software for free but outdated. Nevertheless i keep on using it since there is no better alternative for free.
