Terminal is an application which enables you to issue UNIX commands on the local machine or login to a remote computer and issue commands as though you were typing on that computer's keyboard. The Terminal utility allows you to connect using the SSH-2 protocol for secure communication. It is the preferred ssh client for Mac OS X terminal sessions, however for SCP or SFTP file transfers Fetch and Fugu are also available. Computing Services supports the use of Terminal on Mac.
