"I work with secure shell all the time. Day in and day out I am administering personal machines and client machines with the help of ssh. After a while opening up a terminal window and entering the command to connect to all of these clients gets old. And we all know saving time and effort equates to saving money. So any tool that can help make your daily administrative life easier is a good thing.

"One tool to help you manage your secure shell connections is the GNOME SSHmenu tool. This helpful application adds a small applet to the GNOME panel that allows you to make secure shell connections with a single click. And not only does this applet make it easy to connect, it also stores multiple connections, so all of your ssh connections are just a click away. In this tutorial I am going to show you how to install GNOME SSHmenu and set up your secure shell connections so you can take advantage of this handy tool."
