Pros & Cons:

A very popular mature package.
Only offers xterm emulation.

Our Review:

Besides Dave's Telnet, PuTTY is another very popular mature package, but only offers xterm emulation.

It does not appear to support an answerback message or configurable function keys. However, in the case of function keys this may not be applicable to xterm emulation. PuTTY has been incorporated into many related projects.

Both PuTTY and Dave's Telnet are maintained, but new releases are infrequent.
