PuTTY is a client program for the SSH, Telnet and Rlogin network protocols.
These protocols are all used to run a remote session on a computer, over a network. PuTTY implements the client end of that session: the end at which the session is displayed, rather than the end at which it runs.
In really simple terms: you run PuTTY on a Windows machine, and tell it to connect to (for example) a Unix machine. PuTTY opens a window. Then, anything you type into that window is sent straight to the Unix machine, and everything the Unix machine sends back is displayed in the window. So you can work on the Unix machine as if you were sitting at its console, while actually sitting somewhere else.

    For the more technical Windows users that like their Linux tools, I recommend PuttyCyg (http://code.google.com/p/puttycyg/) which is capable of using putty (and it’s logging/etc) as a command shell with various built-in linux tools. Perhaps an update to this package can be created?

    Might you also be able to add some of the Latest Development Snapshots?

    Some bugs (listed at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/wishlist/ ) have been fixed, and isn’t really a gigantic size increment.

    Besides, there hasn’t been a release since 2007. These snapshots shouldn’t do any harm.

    BUGS Fixed in the snapshot (as of 11/01/08):
    # ugs (and semi-bugs)

    * flow-control: Be cleverer with SSH-2 flow control to improve bulk throughput
    * flow-control-filexfer: Be less clever with SSH-2 flow control in PSFTP and PSCP
    * portfwd-addr-family: Unix listening sockets (e.g., tunnels) are IPv6-only by default
    * pscp-psftp-fail-hang: PSCP/PSFTP hang on exit in some failure cases
    * rsa-import-primeorder: PuTTYgen shouldn’t insist that p > q in imported OpenSSH RSA private keys
    * unix-stderr-opost: When stdout and stderr are ttys, plink’s messages stair-step
    * cmdline-nc-garbage: -nc on the command line mangles the host name
    * pscp-start-hang: PSCP can throw away the start of an SCP session and hang waiting for it
    * ssh1-no-password: PuTTY tries password authentication even if the server says not to.
    * ssh2-window-overrun: PuTTY is confused by servers that don’t respect its window
    * unix-connreset-spin: Unix PuTTY spins in tight loop after abnormal exit
    * unix-plink-stdout-nonblock: Unix Plink should set O_NONBLOCK on stdout and stderr

    # Wishes

    * kerberos-gssapi: Support for GSSAPI (for Kerberos, GSI, etc)
    * port-unix-gtk2: Port to Gtk+-2 toolkit on Unix
    * crhaslf: Add “Implicit LF with every CR” option
    * ssh2-bug-maxpkt: Servers send oversize packets, leading to garbled packet errors
    * ssh2-rsa-kex: Implement SSH-2 RSA key exchange

    Oh, and I just noticed, the Changes page (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/changes.html) hasn’t changed at all since Sun, Feb 24 2008.

    I think its safe to use a snapshot version ;) .
