General form: putty.exe -load my_server -l your_user_name -pw your_password

Combining two different packages for a security solution can be dangerous. This PuTTY is the only way to do this, only using software from the PuTTYwebsite. Opening PuTTY from WinSCP can be done either from the login window or from the SFTP window, which is very convenient for me:


PuTTY allows you to connect and control a remote host (for example, a server). In PuTTY, only the client side of the connection, the display side, is implemented, while the work itself is performed on the server side.

Originally developed for Microsoft Windows, but later ported to Unix. Ports for Mac OS and Mac OS X are in development. Third-party developers have released unofficial ports to other platforms: Symbian OS mobile phones, Windows Mobile communicators, as well as iOS and Android devices.

PuTTY is included in the repositories of almost all popular Linux distributions (including Ubuntu, Debian, ALT Linux).

The original PuTTY is fully developed in C. PuTTY does not depend on the DLL, other applications, or OS update packages. The package consists only of executable files that can be installed anywhere. PuTTY and most utilities run only in one OS thread. The program is a free open source application and is released under the Open Source MIT license [2].
