What is PuTTY?

PuTTY is an open source application that supports multiple network protocols, such as - SSH, Telnet, SCP, rlogin, serial port and raw socket connection. PuTTY communication is established over a TCP/IP socket, such as TTY, but it uses the secure socket with public key encryption. A typed command is sent and received a text response.


Although the word "PuTTY" has no definitive meaning, 'TTY' is the name for a terminal in the Unix tradition. PuTTY which is still a beta software was originally developed by Simon Tatham for Microsoft Windows, but over the years it has been ported to several other OS as well.


PuTTY has some significant features:

- PuTTY supports multiple variations on the secure remote terminal.
- It provides control over the SSH encryption key and protocol version.
- It stores hosts and preferences for later usage.
- Command line SCP and SFTP clients.
- Emulate control sequences from xterm, VT102 or ECMA-48 terminal emulation.
- It allows remote, local or dynamic port forwarding with SSH.
- Used with local serial port connections.
