Xshell is almost perfect, but I have 2 requested features.
(1) automatic session. (Xshell open selected sessions automatically when starting)
(2) dynamic port forward (runs as a socks server), like putty and SecureCRT does.

Re: Re: 2 features request

Xshell 3 will be the best in the market.
Hope automatic session will be added soon, since some users have many servers to connect. One-by-one login is somewhat tedious.
