You've discovered PenguiNet, the simple all-in-one SSH client for Windows! PenguiNet includes an SCP browser, so that you can easily transfer files with just a few mouseclicks.

Tabbed connections

Use one copy of PenguiNet to open as many Telnet and SSH connections as you need. Session windows can be any size, fullscreen, and can be resized at any time. Switch easily between sessions with tabbed browsing and the CTRL-TAB hotkey.

Easy organisation

Organise the hosts you use hierarchically. A child profile can inherit settings from a parent, saving you time and cascading your preferences from the top down. Double-click an SSH-capable host to open the file browser window, then double-click any file for immediate SCP transfer!

Session windows can be in any colour and in any non-proportional font. Configure your session windows to open windowed or fullscreen, at the size you choose. Configure a background image behind your working windows.

PenguiNet includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit, cryptographic software written by Eric Young (, uses the ZLib compression library by Jean-loup Gailly and Mark Adler, the TinyXml parser, the SpTBXLib package by Robert Lee, and includes elements of the Silk icons set.
