• SSH Tectia Client - This invaluable tool provides me with a secure, encrypted connection onto my servers. Once connected I get a full shell console and a secure FTP client. With the console running, I can work on a server as if I were sat directly in front of it and I can do so with confidence since I know that my connection is as secure as it could be.
  • MySQL-Front - This allows me to connect directly to the database and manipulate the contents therein. Of course I can work on the database via the SSH Tectia Client but MySQL-Front gives me a nice, clean GUI to work with.
  • TextPad - In my opinion, simply the best text editor available for Windows.
  • WinCVS - A GUI interface to the CVS repository for my source code and websites. Again, I can work with the repository via the Tectia shell, but sometimes it's just easier to have a GUI.
  • WebMail - Life, as we all know, is meaningless without email. So I also have a webmail service running on my mail server that gives me access to my email, calendar and "to do" list via a standard web-browser. Perfect for keeping in touch when I'm away from my desk.
