The answer depends on the Operating System being used at the workstation.

To avoid any Operating System limitation, I highly recommend searching for 'putty.exe' in the web. It's a small client that offers SSHv1 and SSHv2.

Putty's good , but can't be used from the command prompt. Its GUI based. If you're looking for something to use from a DOS prompt as the poster requested, OpenSSH is the way to go. If you want a GUI, putty is a better choice.

Thanks for all of your responses. I have a crt that i use which i can use for ssh devices, but i would also like to use dos prompt as a quick telnet session as well.

The operating system is XP pro.
