    mobaxterm is good. Thanks for that. It provides the functionality of Putty+WinSCP in single window.

  2. An alternative to "RDP Manager" is "mRemoteNG" (=Multi-Remote Next Generation, An open source, tabbed, multi-protocol, remote connections manager for Windows. It does not even include RDP, but also VNC (Virtual Network Computing), ICA (Citrix Independent Computing Architecture), SSH (Secure Shell), Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork), HTTP/HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), rlogin, Raw Socket Connections. I use it everyday to connect to OS on my SAP servers.
