Putty may be a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Windows and Unix platform, alongside a xterm terminal emulator. It’s written and maintained primarily by Simon Tat ham. These protocols are all wont to run a foreign session on a computer, over a network. Putty 64 bit implements the client end of that session: the top at which the session is displayed, instead of the top at which it runs.
In really simple terms: you run Putty on a Windows machine, and tell it to attach to (for example) a Unix machine. The app opens a window. Anything you type into that window is shipping straight to the Unix machine, and everything the Unix machine sends back is displayed within the window. So, you’ll work on the Unix machine as if you were sitting at its console, while actually sitting elsewhere. This download includes the subsequent tools: Putty (the Telnet and SSH client itself) PS CP(an SCP client, i.e. command-line secure file copy) PS FTP (an SFTP client, i.e. general file transfer sessions very similar to FTP) Putty tel (a Telnet-only client) Ping (a command-line interface to the Putty back ends) Pageant (an SSH authentication agent for Putty, PS CP and Link) Putty gen (an RSA and DSA key generation utility).
