Configuring Putty

Back to the Putty section on the Installing extra applications for Windows 10 page


  • The best way to use PuTTY, is to use it with Pageant:
    • Start Menu ⇒ Putty menu ⇒ Pageant (this will just put the Pageant icon in the rightmost part of the taskbar, the icon may even me masked)
    • Right-click on the Pageant icon and choose:
      • New session to define a new server you want to connect to
        • Recommended settings: FIXME
      • Saved Sessions to connect to a server
      • Add key to select a private ssh key and type/store the matching pass phrase (if you have a private ssh key you generated on Linux, you need to convert it with Putty Menu ⇒ PuTTYgen)
