    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.

        wondering if anyone can help. I am completely new at Ubuntu. Currently running Zorin Core and I’m trying to connect my cisco lab to my PC using puTTy using a Serial connection. Now when I select “Serial” , the “serial line” tab is automatically filled out: /dev/ttyS0.
        I hit open and get an error saying : Unable to open connection to :
        Unable to open serial port.
        What is it I need to do to make make that serial connection communicate with my client on the PC? Appreciate any help I can get.

    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.

    I am using ubuntu 16.04, but Can not login using putty. If I am using terminal, I can login normally. Do you have experience like that?

    You can paste in to putty by connecting a mouse with a wheel by putting the curser in putty and press once on the wheel and it has now pasted.

    Exist the possibility to have and GUI (like TeamViewer) and also to use Putty in the same time ? I also have possibility to open in the same time more connection (to connect in the same time on a master PC and slave PC for example) ?
    Your answer is very important for me, because I installed Ubuntu 17.10 on 2 PC’s, and I use on-board video graphic card and from this reason doesn’t allow me to use TeamViewer and I search more safety and lighter possibility to have remote control on both PC’s.

    Thanks in advance for support and advice.
