For windows, Putty looks good so far.

There is also Puttytel. Not sure what the difference is.
But both download as a .exe -- all you have to do is start it.

Now, however, comes the configuration nightmare.
The app wants a hostname. (It defaults to port 23.)
I can also choose one of raw/ssh/telnet.

So far, I've tried "ssh" and "telnet" with:

Both produce the error:
  Unable to open connection.
  Host does not exist.

(Specifying http protocol doesn't sound right, but what
then is the right protocol to specify? ssh? That doesn't
appear to work, either.)
