need an SSH Terminal app

I have an app called Transmit (which I use to transfer files over FTP or over SSH connections - aka SFTP)

I need an app that will allow me to run terminal commands via SSH.... any thoughts?

If I'm not mistaken, OS X already contains a simple application that does this if you're comfortable with working with a terminal. Just open up a terminal and type "ssh user@host" to open an SSH connection to another computer.

exactly true
why would you need an app to replace a built in app,
you can then type in any unix/linux/windows command built into the remote server.

"Terminal" is the place to get hundreds of applications.

To use ssh to transfer files use the "scp" command...

scp my_file.txt myname@otherserver.ca:path/to/whereever

what do I type in to connect to a server (via SSH), so that I can run commands (ie. I have to make changes to the mysql db... but never done it via a mac... )..... not sure the command line to connect via SSH to run command line prompts... always done this in WinXP via an SSH app that connects for you....

just open the terminal app in the utilities folder
type ssh username@hostserver.com then enter password
If you connect to a windows machine, use dos commands
like cd to move down a directory tree or cd.. to move up.
type edit if you connect to a Windows box, and type the name of the file you want to edit or choose get filename and then the file will copy to your local machine, edit it locally and use put to put it back on the remote machine.
If you ssh to a linux or unix box you can edit it with vi or emacs.

While all the posters above are correct, there are some things to be cautious about.

1.) scp DOES NOTE retain resource forks on the other end. That being said, if you run something like scp -r /folder user@host:/Volumes/disk2/somefoler/ be prepared that while the files will copy the resources may or may not get copied along side.

Don't bother mentioning to me that this was supposed to be fixed in 10.4. I am a seeder and it's still a problem.

2.) Perhaps you don't want to use terminal commands (why I don't know, I LOVE them) but go and grab fugu

It gives you a GUI to the scp/ssh commands. IT also does sftp as well.

What the hell app on Windows does SSH? This can't possibly be built into the OS and I wouldn't think MySQL for WIndows has an SSH client on it.

To gain access to your local sql db, open a terminal and type in the following:
sudo mysqladmin -u root password "yournewmysqlpassword"

You have now given yourself a root password to the root of your mysql. Now you just need to crank it up and roll out some DB's....For this I would say to check with mysql.com in order to determine the version and how to start it up.

In some cases its as easy as editing the hostconfig file from MYSQL=-NO- to MYSQL=-YES- and restarting..
