If we're talking about replacements, SecureCRT is BY FAR the best remote 
management tool out there.  If you have to manage a good number of 
servers and devices, you won't be happier anywhere else.

The best part is, the config folder is drop-in.  So I use rsync to keep 
my ~/.vandyke folder in sync across all my desktops/laptops and all 
settings stay in sync beautifully.

There's also Gnome-Connection-Manager which used to be something I used 
before SecureCRT, but it hasn't been updated in a long time and the 
developer hasn't put the code up anywhere.  I had it up on Github for a 
while and added a couple features, but have now deleted it.


Not sure if it will even install anymore, but is/was definitely a solid 

Of course, as Colin mentioned, PuTTY is also there.  However, I've never 
been a fan of the Linux port.

Last, you could just write everything to ~/.ssh/config, using aliases 
and quickly get to your servers and devices that way as well.

I can't say enough about SecureCRT though.
