    Nice post. But why would you need to install putty, it’s just a frontend for ssh. It’s much easier to use ssh from the command line.

      Hi. Putty is more than just ssh. A good use is to use the serial option to “console in” to cisco devices. It also has a great Rlogin option.

    How does one do a paste from the clipboard in Putty?
    Ctrl-V and Ctrl-Shift-V do not work.
    The Windows version of Putty has no problems with this.
