Does anybody else love tools that make studying or your day job easier? I know I do.
Most of use use software for Telnet or SSH connections, especially if we are studying for networking exams. The trouble is that it's usually pretty limited. With PuTTY (for example), you have to have each connection in a separate window. It becomes a real pain if you are doing advanced Cisco CCNA or CCNP labs. CCIE labs often use 10 or so devices. No thanks.
Solarwinds are probably most widely known for their IP Subnet Calculator program but they have just released a very powerful and free remote connection tool. With it you can open multiple tabs in the same window, save connection info and click a button to connect, auto-reconnect if your session is lost and lots more.
Here is my brief tour.
Here is the download link for the software:
