Connecting to remote servers using SSH, Telnet or Rlogin is much easier with PuTTY.
PuTTY is a free Telnet, Rlogin and SSH client for 32 bits Windows platforms. It allows you to connect to a remote computer from a server connected to the Internet.
All sessions can be automatically recorded in a report which will be available later. It also allows the "copy" by a simple selection and the "stick" with the right button of the mouse. A crowd of more or less abscontes option will be used for the most demanding users.
The command window is customizable to suit all users, the application offers the possibility to change the cursor type, colors, fonts, etc.
Connections are also configurable: you can go through a proxy, to prefer an SSH 1 or 2 SSH connection, set up the compression in the SSH sessions, use a passive mode for Telnet negotiations, etc.
Security fix: the Windows PuTTY binaries should no longer be vulnerable to hijacking by specially named DLLs in the same directory, even a name we missed when we thought we'd fixed this in 0.69.
Windows PuTTY should be able to print again, after our DLL hijacking defenses broke that functionality.
Windows PuTTY should be able to accept keyboard input outside the current code page, after our DLL hijacking defenses broke that too.
