Dear Harry:

I guess you need some advanced Hogwart's training to know, without
having seen it, that a user's application does not depend on some
special feature of the VT340 terminal type.

Putty is quite nice for a free program, but the visual appearance
and interface of its terminal emulation are just not up to the
professional standard that KEA 340 provides.  In particular, the
end users may depend upon keyboard-mapping features which KEA 340
provides but Putty does not.

Attachmate's current products KEA 340 (version 5.1), KEA 420, and
NetWizard Professional do offer SSH connectivity:,1016,504_1,00.html,1016,4100_1,00.html

Otherwise, I maintain a list of vendors of terminal-emulation products,
many of which do support SSH communication.  See this page:

Re: KEA and SSH

If you really need VT340 (ReGIS and Techtronix graphics) support and SSH
connectivity, check out
Reflection for UNIX and OpenVMS.
