    I need a PuTTY-like program or something so I can encript my web traffic through SSH. I'm currently using terminal, but is there something that has a GUI?

    Not that I know of but why not just write a script?

    As of now, the command I'm using is stored in the recent commands, so I just press up a few times to get it. I just need to know how to use some advanced features.

    I'm currently using
    $ ssh ***@*.uiuc.edu -D20000 -D20001

    Basically you want a telnet client that can do SSH?
    One site every Mac user must have bookmarked; http://www.versiontracker.com
    Just put in "telnet ssh" (minus the quotes) and you'll get a few results including some freeware ones.

    I can't suggest which one is the best to use since I haven't used any of them.

    I just found this with Google:

    SSH Tunnel Manager: http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/stm/

    I haven't tried it myself, but I use another Tynsoe project called GeekTool and it works great. So I imagine STM is pretty sweet as well.
