"Kitty is an excellent choice for Windows console terminal"

What do you like best?

Kitty is an excellent version of Putty console terminal for Telnet and SSH connections. It is specially designed to be used in Windows and has an interface similar to Putty, maintaining all its advantages and preferences that have made it the most used console client in the world. It is great to be able to manage the sessions in Kitty with folders, being able to establish folders by categories and filter the sessions by name or host.

Kitty has a portable version available that you should only download the executable and start it, the program will work perfectly and you can delete the records of the sessions. This is especially useful when you use a non-recurring machine in one of your connections.

With KiTTY I can make an automatic connection to the telnel and ssh servers. Simply complete the Auto login password field in the Connection settings box. Of course, Kitty gives me the value of the encrypted password! In the case of ssh servers, the password is transferred during the authentication process.

What do you dislike?

I have not yet found disadvantages with this terminal so far, I even consider that it gives me better services than Putty since the great deficient was to have multiple sessions of connection in different advantages and with Kitty it is solved with the ordered folders that it has.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this terminal because it is specially designed for the Windows environment and in general if you operate devices with this operating system it is very useful since a complete and effective integration is achieved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Kitty I maintain connection by SSH to the network devices that I manage and to the remote Windows servers. I also connect to security equipment such as UTM, firewall and access points for a central and encrypted administration that can provide the necessary security for my clients.

"The Best simple tool to make remote connections to network devices by telnet and SSH"

What do you like best?

Kitty in my opinion is a quite improvement version that putty, I like it because it is quite simple to use like the old putty but with new features really noticeable and appreciable, is a tool that can be run without the need to have a software installed this means that it is portable, it is one of the best features that this type of tool can have since it can be used and taken anywhere with it and when I need it, I like the shortcuts for commands predefined, filter sessions and among other features more.

What do you dislike?

The only negative point that I can give a kitten is its lack of compatibility for other platforms such as Linux, but it really is not of much importance, most people in the world have Windows systems where you can easily run this great tool that He has managed to charm with his functions and be able to detach me from the old putty and get new updates with Kitty.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend Kitty to replace another system that they use for remote connections to network devices or servers, since it is totally free, portable and simple to use, its learning curve is totally null and practical enough it is like seeing putty but improved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Use Kitty constantly to make Telnet and ssh connections to my Ubuntu servers and network devices that have telnet and ssh services enabled, it is quite practical since I can use it anywhere or at any time since it is portable and has taken me out of many At times when I need it, I've stayed with Kitty as a new tool for remote connections.
