Use TeraTerm - old, but in my opinion the best of the terminal emulators. Everything Hyperterminal should have been, but wasn't. Use this for console port config and Telnet.
For SSH I use PortaPuTTY - this is PuTTY but puts the key information in a file on the same directory as the application, rather then in the registry. This means you can carry it around with you, and run it from a memory stick. So you always have your connection information close at hand.
