Iâ€™ve recently had issues with my Putty for S80 on my Nokia 9300i.
Though the port of Putty for Symbian is quite good looking it has many down falls. A major down side is itâ€™s slowness, a connectionto an SSH server would take up like 5 to 7 minutes time.
As they say time and money and loosing time is annoyance and this is especially true if you have to quickly do something on a server via your mobile.
I looked online for good SSH clients that might be a substitute to the PuTTY SSH client In my search I came across this list of SSH clients compatible with the Symbianâ€™s S80 phone architecture
I havenâ€™t tested all of the provided clients but I was blessed to find what I was looking for, I found the Mocha Telnet for Nokia 9300/9500 which is a really nice SSH and Telnet client. I had to acknowledge, itâ€™s interface and itâ€™s SSH session management interface is a way down uhandy but in general the Mocha Telnet is a quickly connection handler able to communicate with the remote SSH servers on Nokia 9300i.
Usually to establish an SSH connection to a server it tooks like 1 minute using the Mocha Telnet this is really quick compared to the 6 minutes waiting while using PuTTY.
Here is a list of the capabilities of the Mocha Telnet client for Nokia 9300 / 9500 (a quote from Mocha telnetâ€™s website):
Mocha Telnet Features:
* VT220 emulation.
* Autologin with scripting parameter.
* User defined function keys.
* Screen mode 24*80.
* Online Help.
* Many trim parameters.
* Small and fast.
* Free upgrades to new versions of the product.

But wait there is even some more glad glad tidings about Mocha Telnet and the Vnc. It seems since the programs product cycle is over and there are no new versions of the programs developed for the Nokia 9300i and a few other old school Symbian powered Nokia phones, MochaSoft decided to liberate the applications as a freeware by providing a freeware registration codes for the programs to benefit from the codes and register both your Mocha Telnet you can use:
