If you need ssh then try Putty [chiark.greenend.org.uk] it is also a great free program.
It's SSH v1 protocol only, though. Some sites are turning off ssh-v1-protocols and forcing ssh access via v2 only. It is still worth trying this add-on to see if it'll work (since teraterm is quite spiffy).
The question for Alex is -- what are you running on your desktop? We need to establish where you are at before we can detail a path to where you want to go.
Brett, I never had a problem with Putty, and I've put it on probably a dozen machines. I think it is the only free ssh2 compatible windows client out there. It must be that Opera downloader corrupting your files... just kidding!
