The setup:
I'm recently reborn again in Linux and a lot of these repository descriptions can sometimes seem vague to me or just a bit overwhelming. I just installed 9.10 Server since I just wiped a brand new Windows 7 laptop to install Karmic Desktop on it. So I finally have a need for this.

The question:
Back in college I could use windows terminal to log into my schools *nix servers and could remotely login (w/ password) and it took me to bash. I believe I came across a repository of a GUI version of this feature while digging, but I want the command line version 1st. (IDK if I want it more for nostalgia or for power). Eventually I plan to have both types running though. But, what service am I looking for?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds to me like you need an SSH Client.

I think it comes pre-installed as "ssh". If you're looking for an SSH Server, then you might want to check out OpenSSH

It sounds like you were using putty to ssh into a server. There are others that work with telnet/ssh from windows, but putty is the most popular from what I've seen.

I use putty too and find it very good.
