PuTTY Review

Tina de Pierre

A review of PuTTY by Tina de Pierre

PuTTY is by far the most lightweight and handy SSH client available for free. As a freeware application, it is also extremely portable. If you're at a friend's house, for example, and you need to access your server for any reason, PuTTY is the best client to download without any hassle.

PuTTY is highly recommended for any administrator or anybody who needs an SSH or Telnet client quick. It supports both SSH and SSH2 and is a free download.


PuTTY is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from ssh/telnet clients without restrictions. PuTTY 0.70 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
