I simply registered for any devoted server at Alabanza (I have heard a great deal good about the subject!) plus they require that telnet access be by SSH telnet. They recommend Secure CRT, however i seem like I am already investing plenty for the time being :-) Could someone recommend any free SSH telnet client?

You might like to try http://www.net.lut.ac.uk/psst/ (actually, Alabanza gives this connect to new clients if they are searching for a totally free client). SecureCRT (a different one they recommend) is a reasonably good product, IMO, and well worth the hundred dollars. Additionally, there are OpenSSH at http://www.openssh.com/ (initially produced for BSD), that is free, and SSH secure spend at http://commerce.ssh.com/, which isn't.
For Win9x/NT
PuTTY looks very good for what it's (free!). The possible lack of support for this may push many people away, but it is small , fast.

There's another free gift for Win clients known as TTSSH (http://www.zip.com.au/~roca/ttssh.html), which requires using TeraTerm (another free gift).

For that Mac, there's http://www.lysator.liu.se/~jonasw/freeware.html NiftyTelnet, but that website isn't reacting at that time I am penning this.

And That I must accept Mike - SecureCRT is among the best clients I have run into, and worth the cost. They are doing possess a one month trial if you wish to view it (http://www.vandyke.com/items/securecrt/index.html).
Thanks, Annette. I forgot to mention I want a WIN98 client. The psst link brought me to PuTTy, any info whether that's good (for any free gift, that's)?

Talking about Telnets, I'm searching for one for that Mac which has SSH. http://www.net.lut.ac.uk/psst/ is no more available.

I'm also searching for an SSH client for Home windows 95/98 for the similar reason.

I've got a free version of the spend client from ssh.com but it's SSH2 and Alabanza requires SSH1 apparently.

This is actually the one fault I've with Alabanza, if there have been a totally free SSH1 client for home windows available there would not be an issue, however i can't appear to locate one
Secure CRT is what you want. It's well worth the small investment.
