"Putty, the best and fastest virtual terminal to make remote connections to network devices."

What do you like best?

putty is the most used tool to make remote or local connections to the different types of devices that support the necessary protocols to establish the connection such as SSH, Telnet and Serial, I like this tool sincerely because it is very light, easy to access and very simple to use, its versions are quite practical when you need them, its portable version is the best and its connections are high quality, with simple graphical interface and simple to understand, it is designed to be used by any type of person with knowledge basic networks that need to make connections to the various types of equipment (router, switch, firewall, servers) you want, I like the function of several sessions at the same time in different teams, is one of its functions that I like because It helps me in situations of multiple configurations.

What do you dislike?

I really do not have disgust with this tool, it is really my favorite to make remote and local connections to my network equipment and those that I manage in different clients, what if I have to say is that it has not received more updates for a long time and this may be a disadvantage for the tool but actually until today I have not had any kind of problem with it, it has fulfilled my needs and I will use it as long as it does not cause any kind of serious problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I always recommend this tool to make remote connections to network devices or servers, it is completely free and can be downloaded from an official site with two versions available to install locally or use it in its portable version which is the most practical to use , the tool does not need to have advanced knowledge to be used and it is very simple.

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

I use this tool constantly almost every day because of the need to connect to different equipment such as router switches, firewalls or servers, with the need to make configurations or changes that need to be made in the networks, it facilitates and speeds up my work since only I need to be in the network to make my connection via any protocol supported by the device to connect and go, has always taken me out of many predicaments since I always carry the portable version with me on a USB stick for times I need to connect locally.

" Putty, simple but satisfactory management terminal"

What do you like best?

Putty is the tool that you can use to connect remotely through ssh and telnet protocols in the administration of remote connection devices to servers or command distribution equipment. It is a tool that is portable and lightweight. Thanks to it our group of administrators can manage jobs from any user or site as it is a tool that we can share without having to install it permanently

What do you dislike?

Putty is a management opportunity and easy control is a very simple tool, for which the graphical interface is so reliable and grateful to the management because my experience is of very little use

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is totally recommended for every IT professional. which without cost can use putty without problem to be able to administer the tool without any problem.

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

It has brought many benefits because it is a totally portable tool, which can be used from any computer that you want to connect and manage. The ability to be portable is very light. To save costs in tools of remote connection by command and to save time of search of some terminal of the same gesiton. Putty has become the one that can connect without problem and in a simple way

"ssh and telnet in control with putty"

What do you like best?

Putty I like it because it's a too basic and general tool to make ssh and telnet connections to any device you want. Just like you can connect and have control of a management device such as a server or some device that is control by command. This tool is too light for my taste, you can have it as portable anywhere you want. Every time you need to connect to a device quickly. This is the most necessary tool.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I do not like about the tool is that it does not bring features as advanced as other ssh connection programs. Similarly, the tool does not have features such as tagging and command control. It does not have as much functionality and determination to have under control the power to handle any device

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this tool to connect in an immediate and basic way to an ssh or telnet management device and to have a good and controlled managemen

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

I have solved infinities of times connection of emergencies, such as connecting to a device by ssh or telnet. To get the company out of trouble as a lost packet in the network. This tool has helped me to connect very quickly

"Prêt à sortir du terrain"

What do you like best?

Cela me permet également de me connecter de manière sécurisée aux serveurs distants, à l'exception de la possibilité de transmettre des fichiers via SFTP et SCP. Cet outil a été utilisé dans mon entreprise pour obtenir un accès à des machines distantes via SSH et Telnet. C’est très fondamental, un acheteur SSH plaisant pour le consommateur qui permet d’exécuter des instructions un peu comme les terminaux sur MacOS et Linux.

What do you dislike?

En fait, je ne vois aucune différence visible après l'utilisation de cet appareil, le changement et l'enregistrement de certains paramètres tels que l'apparence des polices sont devenus non intuitifs. Il existe différents moments où je tape avec un mauvais nom d'utilisateur et je dois redémarrer tout le logiciel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Essayez, si vous faites beaucoup de travail dans le terminal, vous ne parviendrez peut-être plus au bas de la page Essayez, si vous faites des peintures dans le terminal, si vous en avez besoin commandes et adresses IP de vos commutateurs pour l'appliquer.

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

C'est l'outil d'approvisionnement gratuit et ouvert que tout le monde peut utiliser. La maintenance de la base de données peut être exécutée à l'aide de cet outil. C'est une alternative sûre et rapide, sans perte de temps ni d'argent dans les programmes qui ne remplissent pas cette fonction.

"Bon client SSH et Telnet"

What do you like best?

Putty est un super consommateur SSH, Telnet ou en série. Il est gratuit et gratuit. Vous pouvez également télécharger des cartes mémoire. C’est un logiciel très complet qui nous offre une grande flexibilité avec quelques alternatives, qui permet à ses clients de rester informés en raison du fait qu’ils utilisent généralement des améliorations et un développement cohérent.

What do you dislike?

L’interface est une pièce avancée pour les utilisateurs débutants et de temps en temps il faut un certain temps pour découvrir quelque chose. Autorización C’est une pièce abstraite car elle n’a pas d’interface permettant de faciliter son utilisation à la personne qui il est difficile d’entrer ou de commencer à utiliser ce logiciel, mais c’est quelque chose pour lequel un programmeur doit être organisé

Recommendations to others considering the product

Enfin, il s’agit d’un logiciel non bloqué, peu de logiciels offrent autant d’avantages gratuitement. Je pourrais proposer d’appliquer cet outil au quotidien, selon vos souhaits, afin d’obtenir un droit d’entrée sur les machines Linux via Telnet, SCP et SSH.

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

Accéder à mes serveurs si rapidement sans configurer quoi que ce soit et simplement taper l'adresse IP ou le domaine du serveur et le port pour qu'il soit facilement inséré dans la console J'aime cette application, car elle vous permet de rejoindre des systèmes d'exploitation exclusifs sur votre serveur, je le trouve très bénéfique, je l'utilise presque tous les jours pour accéder à un champ Unix, planifier des travaux et vérifier les journaux d'activité exécutés sous Unix

"Une télécommande de premier ordre obtient le droit d’entrée au client"

What do you like best?

PuTTY enregistre tous les équipements auxquels vous avez déjà accédé et possède un ensemble de paramètres et d’options robustes. PuTTY est un dispositif simple et fluide permettant d’accéder aux machines Linux via SSH et TELNET.

What do you dislike?

Fenêtres de début tiene algunas carencias como l. A. Personnalisation en apparence, dans la mesure où il n’existe pas encore de versions différentes Il existe des cas où il peut y avoir un excès de statistiques et où le dispositif informatique peut être très collé, ce qui influence considérablement la capacité de examinez les gadgets dont vous avez besoin, ce qui s’exclut du fait qu’en vue de voir plusieurs gadgets en même temps, PuTTY en appelle à chacun pour commencer une session, ce qui a pour conséquence que de nombreux documents de journal sont générés pour vous aider. pour vérifier vos faits pour une analyse ultérieure Personnalisation en apparence visible, comme si elle était en ce moment dans les versions suivantes

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nous vous recommandons d’appliquer cet appareil de manière habituelle, conformément à vos souhaits d’adopter des statistiques sur les trajets de SSH et Telnet. Je recommanderais d’appliquer cet appareil de manière ordinaire, conformément à votre désir d’obtenir l’admission des machines Linux via Telnet, SCP et SSH. Essayez, si vous faites pas mal de peintures dans le terminal, vous ne pouvez pas avoir l’air inférieur

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

. En particulier les tâches dans lesquelles vous devez parcourir des serveurs et rechercher des documents qui peuvent être beaucoup plus simples que Putty. Les avantages constatés sont associés à la résolution d'un certain nombre de bogues pour la plateforme de solution de mon entreprise.

"Buen administrador remoto"

What do you like best?

Es un programa bastante sencillo y no requiere mucha configuracion adicional despues de instalarlo y ejecutarlo.

Putty es excelente para conectarse a un sistema de red y, ademas, a sitios ftp.

Es un programa ligero de Opensource.

Lo que realmente me gusta es la gran distancia a la que puedo conectar facilmente con algun otro servidor como Linux, por ejemplo, cuando estoy operando y necesito hacer un compromiso alli.

La configuracion se convirtio en bastante simple y el programa fue muy facil de usar.

What do you dislike?

Si bien puede ser facil de usar y comprender, a veces ciertos factores que pueden llegar a ser complicados, pero con un tiempo de uso termina siendo facil de utilizar.

La interfaz de usuario esta pidiendo un cambio estetico ya que no es muy agradable a la hora de utlizarlo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simplemente es un programa perfecto para poder transferir los archivos de un sitio a otro, encima es un programa gratuito y muy sencillo de usar, no se le puede pedir mas sinceramente.

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

Lo usamos para conectar nuestras maquinas a varios servidores y transferir/mover los archivos de una ubicacion a otra de una forma rapida y simple.

"Administrando dispositivos con Putty"

What do you like best?

- Es fácil de usar y tiene una interfaz simple. Es altamente configurable y también puede realizar transferencias de archivos seguras a través de SFTP y SCP. Es una herramienta muy útil para administrar dispositivos de red, no solo estos dispositivos sino también los servidores que ejecutan el servicio ssh o telenet. Es fácil de usar y tiene dos versiones, la más práctica es la portátil, en lo personal es la que más me gusta y la uso más porque es muy práctica, puede ejecutarse y solo tendremos que elegir el Protocolo y donde queremos conectarnos y tendremos nuestra conexión establecida.

What do you dislike?

- No hay opción para escribir macros y algunos de los protocolos Poca mejora en apariencia e interfaz Es realmente simple, por lo tanto, tiene muy pocas opciones

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puede ser difícil de usar para conexiones complejas, pero el uso general es bastante simple. Recomendaría utilizar esta herramienta, ya que proporciona una forma muy sencilla y fácil de acceder a las máquinas a través de SSH y Telnet. Si tiene que acceder a una CLI del servidor desde fuera de la oficina, esta puede ser la mejor opción para ser tan rápida y fácil de configurar en cualquier PC.

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

Facilite las conexiones a los servidores y desde cualquier parte de la empresa. Esta es una herramienta de código abierto y gratuita para que cualquiera pueda usarla. Trabajando en una base de código que no es local

"An excellent remote access client"

What do you like best?

Finally I like that it contains several types of connection such as Telnet, SSH, Serial, among others. What it does, it does well. Putty allows local, remote, or dynamic port forwarding with SSH including X11 forwarding

What do you dislike?

Tal vez que al ser tan simple carece de algunas características que otros productos del mercado si ofrecen, y las cuales facilitan el trabajo cuando las conexiones son repetitivas y constante a diferentes dispositivos. Autorización There are other times when I type in the wrong username and I have to restart the whole application

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, in case you do a lot of work in the terminal, you may not seem lower. I love it and it makes life easy especially when you need to copy and paste screen output

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

our system and this be able to manage the files, moving between the different directories of the sites and WEB stores and also executing the necessary commands to update, clean cache, activate and deactivate modules The main benefit that I get is to be able to connect remotely to the consoles of the network devices that I have to manage remotely, this task takes a lot of time from my working day and therefore it is of vital importance that the connection is stable and secure, so which use SSH. database maintenance can be done using this tool

"Excelente Cliente SSH"

What do you like best?

Putty se ha convertido rápidamente en una de mis opciones para la conexión a dispositivos de red y servidor a través del protocolo SSH, ya que me permite administrarlos sin tener que realizar gastos en licencias.

Si bien no es mi herramienta por defecto, es la que utilizo cuando estoy usando otro computador que no es el mío y necesito conectarme vía ssh hacia algún dispositivo.

Putty es sumamente ligero y no requiere una instalación, y esto permite que no consuma recursos excesivos al momento de utilizarlo.

Es un software simple que cumple su función al pie de la letra sin mayor complicación, y totalmente gratis.

Y no solo permite conexiones por SSH, también maneja los protocolos Telnet, Rlogin, Raw y Serial.

Puedes guardar sesiones de dispositivos para conexión rápida.

What do you dislike?

Tal vez que al ser tan simple carece de algunas características que otros productos del mercado si ofrecen, y las cuales facilitan el trabajo cuando las conexiones son repetitivas y constante a diferentes dispositivos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Putty es una herramienta perfecta para la administración vía terminal de dispositivos de red, puedes utilizarlo como tu herramienta predeterminada y seguramente te costará utilizar otra después de que veas lo simple que es.

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

Me permite administrar de manera fácil, rápida y segura, diferentes dispositivos a través de SSH, sin necesidad de realizar pagos excesivos por licencias.

"Putty, Session on Remote Servers."

What do you like best?

The most amazing thing about Putty is that it is usually free and open source, it can be run for Windows and Linux operating systems with a super simple and manageable interface for any user. It is a very complete software and it gives us great flexibility with multiple options, keeps its users up to date because they are always using improvements and in constant development.

What do you dislike?

There are times when there is an excess of information and the desktop is very collapsed, so this considerably affects the ability to look at the devices you want, and this collapse is due to the fact that in order to see many devices at the same time, PuTTY requires that for each one to start a session, this disadvantage causes that many log files are generated that help to store your data for later analysis. It can also be said that although it is not very relevant, it has a limited capacity tool to clean and control serial devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend PuTTY because it can perform many functions when running on the Windows operating system, it is a versatile tool that is used more often in cases where a user on a Windows computer wants to open an SSH access session that would be a Shell secure remote And because it is compatible with various communication protocols.

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

We benefit from PuTTY because we can connect to remote servers by starting a session in them that allows us to execute commands. The clearest moment is when we use PuTTY to execute commands on a VPS server so we can install a program or configure some part of the server. The Telnet client part is more unknown to me, but the clearest example of use is to connect to our home router to configure it through Telnet and open ports, among other things.

"Simple and perfect client to administer servers"

What do you like best?

The first thing I like is the simplicity and simplicity of the software, it is easy to use and very efficient. It also allows me to connect with remote servers in a secure way, besides being able to transmit files by SFTP and SCP. It also allows saving sessions so that I do not have to remember the keys every time I'm going to connect, and also allows key management through a private key file for authentication, this I use a lot with Amazon Web Services servers.

What do you dislike?

Its main disadvantage in my opinion is the graphic aspect, it is an aspect that is not careful, it should be noted that it is a free software designed to be functional and not beautiful, this compensates for the lack of a good graphic finish. On the other hand, the use of tabs for each session would be quite pleasant, and even the software has not integrated it, because each connection requires opening a new window.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this software because it is very simple and simple, and it does a great job, its appearance may not be nice but it is very functional, as well as being very safe. Finally it is a free software, few softwares have so many benefits for free.

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

I use it to connect with the remote servers of the company, these are my own servers, and amazon servers, I also use it personally to connect with servers that I believe in Raspberry Pi.

"An excellent remote access client"

What do you like best?

I like that it is a free and open source software for the use of any person. In addition to being able to work in Windows and Linux. I also like it because it is not a very complicated application for easy use, it can be a bit complicated when connecting with AWS, but it is still easy to use. It is also a software in constant development and updating to improve it. Finally I like that it contains several types of connection such as Telnet, SSH, Serial, among others.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that in order to have FTP access you must require the use of other software, either PSFTP that also belongs to the PUTTY package but is in another application. At the same time, I would like it to be able to customize the interface, since its appearance is old. Despite this it is a very powerful program

Recommendations to others considering the product

I fully recommend this software to make different connections to servers such as SSH, Telnet, Serial, among other types of connections. It can be difficult to use for complex connections, but the general use is quite simple

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

Solvento the problems of fast connection to the main servers, since previously it was required to use the SSH from Ubuntu, now it can be used from Windows. This program also has a mobile version for Android which is very useful and allows using tablets to make quick and easy connections

"Excellent terminal to configure network devices."

What do you like best?

It is a very useful tool, it is very easy to use and has a very simple graphical interface, it helps to connect to different equipment through different protocols and terminals. Its portable version is very useful at the time of not having your computer at hand, with the portable version you can take it in an external storage device and you can run it from any computer.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about the tool is that it is not intuitive, many times the connections are dropped and there is no way to reconnect or recover the session in a very easy way, you must guess how you do it so you do not have to close the window and back open the putty which is somewhat tedious, you have to better your options to have a better experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the tool if you do not have any other terminal to manage your devices, it is not bad, but not very good, in case of emergency in which you do not have your equipment you can physically use the portable version, but not as the permanent solution.

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

I use this tool in case of emergency in which I can not use another terminal, it is useful at times when it is necessary to give support or connect to a computer and do not have access to your work team, so it is advisable to always have the version portable.

" administering devices with putty"

What do you like best?

is a very easy to use tool, I like that it can be installed in a very easy way or even download its portable form so that in any place to execute it and be able to take it in an external storage device, it is a good practice for moments of emergency in which you do not have access to the internet without being able to download the tool. apart it is very easy to use it has no complications when connecting to the devices.

What do you dislike?

What displeases me most about the application is that when connecting is a bit slow connection, like entering some command by the terminal these are taken slowly, but for specific moments is very useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation is always to have it as a second option, and only because of its portable version, it can get them out of trouble in specific situations. It is free and is the viable option when it is offline.

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

The solutions attacked with this tool have been punctual, in clients that do not have another type of terminal with which to manage the devices, in these cases there is always a portable tool that serves as utility while another tool can not be downloaded. It is very useful in these cases.

"Admin your remote servers"

What do you like best?

It makes life easier for you to connect to your remote servers in order to admin then. It's highly configurable and you can save all your sessions to use next time you need. Also, it supports secure connections and it's easy to configure with your private key file for the authentication. A great feature I like it's the way to configure tunnelings with the remote server in order to use in your own computer.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a bit advanced for the begginer users and sometimes it takes a time to find something. Also, there is no way to share or make a backup of saved sessions, you have to go to the Windows registry and get it from there. Finally, it hasn't a tabbed interface, you have to open a new Putty if you want to open another session.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes time to catch up but its worth.

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

I use Unix servers without a GUI so I need to open a secure connection, I use that software every day to admin my remote servers: production, staging, integration...

"Best of PuTTY"

What do you like best?

It allows you to connect any machine to another remote one. There is also no option to remember your password which makes it more secure so that other people can not control your work. It is highly configurable and can also perform secure file transfers through SFTP and SCP. It is a very reliable application and can also be run on Mac OSx as an external application.

What do you dislike?

A somewhat shabby interface does not cause much confidence, but being free and with the capacity it provides, the interface's deficiencies are compensated. There is no option to write macros and some of the protocols.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an application that is not perfect but it does its job without cost. It can make all kinds of connections and its feature set is good enough to meet the needs of most IT professionals.

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

I use it to connect our machines to several Unix servers and transfer or move files from one location to another

"Experience with PuTTy"

What do you like best?

The software is quite simple and does not require much additional configuration after installing and executing it. Putty is excellent for connecting to a network system and, in addition, to FTP sites. It is a lightweight Opensource software. It's okay. What I really like are the miles I can easily connect to some other server such as Linux, for example, when I'm operating and I need to make a commitment there. The configuration became quite simple and the software was very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

You can not simply right click on the PuTTY icon and close to all open periods. While it can be easy to use and understand, there are certain factors that can be complicated. The user interface is asking for a date fragment, but it is clear and functional, so this is just an aesthetic problem. It seems that utility instances are a form of interruption.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Creation of the SSH tunnel when I need to carry out tests with other origins or avoid restrictions. I defend one hundred percent because it is a very beneficial tool within a commercial company and it is really easy to configure. But if you choose a light and fast weight. Connectivity tool, putty is the way to go. Try it, in case you do a lot of work in the terminal, you may not seem lower.

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

Simple and possible interface My team has observed in recent times that we will allow the SSH shell within the configuration of a VMware host and the problem commands and replace them in that way. While you support me keep the music of all the connections I make. Connections with external hosts. It is a safe and fast alternative, without losing time or money in applications that do not fulfill the function. My group recently determined that we can allow SSH shell within the configuration for a VMware host and issue commands and update it that way. I have no idea how I would carry out these responsibilities without the use of such an effective and problem-free tool.

"Cliente SSH simple pero beneficioso"

What do you like best?

El software es bastante sencillo y no requiere mucha configuración adicional después de instalarlo y ejecutarlo. Putty es excelente para conectarse a un sistema de red y, además, a sitios ftp. Es un software ligero de Opensource. Está bien. Lo que realmente me gusta aproximadamente son las millas que puedo conectar fácilmente con algún otro servidor como Linux, por ejemplo, cuando estoy operando y Necesito hacer un compromiso allí. La configuración se convirtió en bastante simple y el software fue muy fácil de usar.

What do you dislike?

No puede simplemente hacer clic derecho en el icono de PuTTY y cerca de todos los períodos abiertos. Si bien puede ser fácil de usar y comprender, hay ciertos factores que pueden llegar a ser complicados. La interfaz de usuario está pidiendo un fragmento de fecha, pero es clara y funcional, por lo que este es solo un problema estético. Parece que las instancias de utilidad son una forma de interrupción.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Creación del túnel SSH cuando necesito realizar pruebas con otros orígenes o evitar restricciones Lo defiendo al cien por cien debido a que es una herramienta muy beneficiosa dentro de una empresa comercial y es realmente fácil de configurar. Pero si elige un peso ligero y rápido. Herramienta de conectividad, masilla es la manera de ir. Inténtalo, en caso de que hagas mucho trabajo en la terminal, es posible que no parezcas más bajo.

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

Interfaz simple y posible Mi equipo ha observado en los últimos tiempos que permitiremos el shell SSH dentro de la configuración de un host VMware y los comandos de problemas y los reemplazaremos de esa manera. Mientras me apoyan mantengan la música de todas las conexiones que hago. Conexiones con hosts externos. Es una alternativa segura y rápida, sin perder tiempo ni dinero en aplicaciones que no satisfacen la función. Mi grupo determinó recientemente que podemos permitir shell SSH dentro de la configuración para un host VMware y emitir comandos y actualizarlo de esa manera. No tengo idea de cómo llevaría a cabo estas responsabilidades sin el uso de una herramienta tan eficaz y sin problemas.

"Herramienta simple y eficaz para conectarse a través de ssh a otros servidores"

What do you like best?

Putty es una simple herramienta para conectarse a través de ssh, telnet entre otros, Putty no tiene opción de recordar la contraseña, lo que lo hace algo mas seguro, para que otras personas que se conecten en el mismo ordenador no sean capaces de conectarse al servidor. Es gratuito y libre es muy ligero como también de rápido ademas de hacer bien su trabajo.

What do you dislike?

La interfaz de usuario de mala calidad y de la vieja escuela está apagada porque es libre y la capacidad que proporciona supera las deficiencias de la interfaz.

Sólo hay que tener en cuenta lo de seleccionar para copiar y el cierre de la sesión. Además, una ventaja que hay que tener en cuenta es que la aplicación es completamente portable y, por lo tanto, no es necesario instalarla.

"Simple y Efectivo Putty es tu mejor Aliado para conectarte a equipos remotos unix"

What do you like best?

Me encanta que PuTTY me permita conectarme fácilmente a mis servidores Unix de una manera limpia y eficiente.

He estado usando PuTTY durante años y nunca he tenido ningún problema y estoy muy contento de poder decir esto sobre un software libre.

El software es bastante sencillo y no requiere mucha configuración adicional después de instalarlo y ejecutarlo.

What do you dislike?

Mi mayor queja con PuTTY es que no se pueden tener varias sesiones abiertas en el mismo software con pestañas (tipo navegador). En su lugar, PuTTY abre ventanas separadas para cada sesión, y cuando trabajas con mas de 3 sesiones es un poco locura y es mucho más conveniente tenerlas abiertas en la misma aplicación con pestañas en lugar de ventanas individuales que PuTTY mismo proporciona. espero que algún día, piensen en poner esa opción.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Herramienta muy valiosa para usar, una buena y libre elección, prueba la y te sorprenderás.

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

PuTTY es mi herramienta principal para conectarme a equipos de red de forma remota. Acceso rápido y fácil al sistema operativo mediante SSH. No tengo ni idea de cómo realizaría estas tareas sin utilizar una herramienta tan fácil y a la vez tan eficaz.

"Simple yet effective terminal client"

What do you like best?

That it's light weight Opensource software at it's best! A very clean, simple to use interface with a multitude of features....all for nothing!

The documentation on their website is very concise and covers every aspect of using the software. Another good point is how frequently they update the software, it's not enough to become annoying but they are regularly implementing new features, bug fixes and security improvements. Their change-log which is published on their site is testament to this. Often Opensource software is created for a specific reason, which is achieved and never improved or maintained. Keep up the good work Putty!

The other great feature is the ability to multiple, yet individual instances of the application (I forget what they call this, something like polygamy). Which allows you to connect to different servers through different protocols concurrently.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to pick a dislike with this little bit of software. I suppose the only thing that can be a little clunky is saving your connections. I also don't know where the credentials are stored and how secure they are.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, if you do a lot of terminal work you won't look back.

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

I use PuTTY on a daily basis for a number of different tasks. Whether it be administrating our servers through their SSH terminal or using TELNET to talk to mail servers for debugging. It's xterm terminal emulator is very stable. You can even talk to older devices through serial connections!

" administration with Putty"

What do you like best?

is a device manager that uses protocols such as Telnet and SSH and / or console which offers connect to devices such as Router, Switch and servers that handle these protocols, it is simple to use the tool but useful.

What do you dislike?

what I dislike about this product is that it is not practical, sessions are closed or stuck on several occasions. but the rest is a good program to manage devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool is recommended because it is a simple administration manager, easy to use, you can install or have the portable version of the tool so that in special cases you have it on hand in a pendriver or external memory.

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

it is used in certain occasions to administer network devices such as router and switch, and other times servers.

"A simple but fast connection service"

What do you like best?

I love how simplistic a software can be and this one is one of them, you simply have a configurator with LOTS of parameters, and it mostly works fast, reliable and keeping it simple.

What do you dislike?

It could have more features regarding bugs, tunneling... but mostly bug control, sometimes you have the perception it is failing on some other things due to some vague descriptions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need some connection parameters to access or to have a configuration extended to a set of computers it is your software, in terms of reliability is flawless and when your focus is something that does the job without adding an extra layer of complexity you thank god for programs like this.

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

We are solving connections to external IPs, access to some database that rely con controlled tunneling and sometimes to work at home and access to all the ip restricted office services.

"Putty is a solid dependable way to get a command line"

What do you like best?

I like that Putty gives me the same *nix experience that I get on Linux and Mac machines, to access the command line interface.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that used to bug me was that there was no Windows installer, but that's changed as of last year, and it works well now. But, I there was no way to know that without visiting the Putty website - so watch that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a solid free application which is well-maintained (the website for Putty is https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) and robust. While there is no notification of updates to the application from the developer, other than that, it does exactly what it promises to do, and it does it well.

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

I started using only Linux and Macs to interface with *nix servers, and I stayed away from Windows workstations as a result. Putty changed that, making it easy for me to have the same familiar interface on Windows workstations.

"Lightweight, Effective SSH"

What do you like best?

PuTTY saves previously accessed IPs or Hostnames and has a robust set of settings and options. Some great settings available include being able to change the functions of keys or shortcuts, and even which keyboard you're using.

What do you dislike?

Minimal GUI means there's some learning curve. Putty is an open source piece of software so there's not much expectation of support, but it also means that there is a large community of users and a large install base so it's not too difficult to find an answer to a problem you run into.

Recommendations to others considering the product

PuTTY is very useful for remote administration of servers and other devices that can be accessed through SSH.

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

PuTTY makes it very easy to remotely access servers, including virtual ones. My team has recently discovered that we can enable SSH shell in the configuration for a VMware host and issue commands and update it that way.

"PuTTY conexion rapida y facil"

What do you like best?

Es un cliente Telnet y SSH fácil de usar ya ademas es muy liviano. Permite conectarse fácilmente a cualquier equipo o servidor, es fácil de configurar, con tan solo elegir que deseamos. El telnet nos permite conectarnos a través de consola, pidiendo el usuario y contraseña, el cual por esta opción nos permite a través de script ejecutar o configurar según lo que se desee hacer. La conexión SSH es similar a la Telnet, pero esta es mas segura pero la comunicación es cifrada y mas segura. Lo excelente es que cuando se ejecuta por primera vez esta aplicacion donde nos queremos conectar este dará una alerta, entregando una clave publica de quien quiere conectarse.

What do you dislike?

Es una excelente herramienta y gratuita, lo único seria que la interfaz es algo arcaica pero es muy buena para ser gratis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es excelente herramienta gratuita, fácil de usar y configurar. Permite conexiones Telnet y SSH rápidas e instantáneas.Administra y gestiona servidores.

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

Diariamente es usada para conectarse a servidores y poder gestionar comunicaciones, establecer configuraciones. Cambien para verificar el estatus de servicios usados comúnmente en nuestras redes.

"a look at the remote connection"

What do you like best?

To be able to connect to remote servers by starting a session in them that allows us to execute commands. The clearest example is when we use PuTTY to execute commands on a VPS server and thus be able to install a program or configure some part of the server.

What do you dislike?

There are vulnerabilities in TCP / IP (it is not encrypted), it must have Computer Knowledge (knowledge of commands) since it is not used graphical environment, the commands must be used to be able to maneuver in the server to which we connect remotely.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This impressive Telnet and SSH client will allow you to connect to any remote machine to use it through your terminal in a simple way from windows. Despite its simplicity, it has many more options than other paying customers. This manual also offers an introduction to the use of SSH, explaining the differences between SSL Shell and Telnet. Discover the main PuTTY features and learn how to start an SSH session using your username and password.

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

The Telnet client part is more unknown to me, but the clearest example of use is to connect to our home router to configure it through Telnet and open ports, etc. In short, with PuTTY we managed to open a command line session on the remote server to manage. One question that may arise is why use PuTTY? What are its advantages? This application is like all, it has its good parts and bad parts, but if it is true that it mostly has great advantages such as the following: It is free and open source.

Available for several platforms (Windows and Linux).

It is a portable application.

Simple and manageable interface.

Very complete and offers great flexibility with many options.

It is in constant development.

"Putty Simple and Safe"

What do you like best?

With a free license. Originally available only for Windows, now it is also available on several Unix platforms, and the version for classic Mac OS and Mac OS X is being developed. Other people have contributed unofficial versions for other platforms, such as Symbian for mobile phones. It is beta software written and maintained mainly by Simon Tatham, open source and licensed under the MIT License. SSH, Telnet, SFTP, Rlogin and Raw connections. Numerous configuration options.

Very complete help.

What do you dislike?

Little improvement in appearance and interface.

When you hit the right button on the taskbar, the long contextual menu.

The Linux version is not as complete as the windows version.

For SFTP you have to use another executable

Recommendations to others considering the product

It fulfills its purpose. Look for a program that would allow me a telnet connection to configure the router and I found this one. The truth is that it was easy to use and needless to say that it fulfills its purpose perfectly.

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

This application I use at work when I want to connect to Debian computers that we have installed on clients. Fast and reliable, what I need. I like this program because it lets you connect from different operating systems to your server, I find it very useful, I use it practically every day.

excellent program for developers. It is a program that in the computer environment is very well seen since its installation is not necessary. It can be executed from any computer

"The best ssh and telnet client and very easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is a very convenient tool to use, since it requires few steps to connect to a remote server and to be able to manage the files you need at the moment you need it, it is a CLI command line interface very used for its simplicity and security since connecting to a router to configure it or to another system to execute commands that allow to install or configure third programs, I like it because I can use it in both windows and in Linux apart from being software is in constant development simply a great tool

What do you dislike?

It is a bit abstract since it does not have an interface that allows it to facilitate even more its use to the user which makes it a little difficult to enter or start using this software, but it is something for which a programmer must be prepared

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good option to introduce yourself in this environment and thus learn about the commands and configurations needed on an SSH client and then move on to a more powerful option

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

In our company we work with a programming framework based on the PHP language called Magento in its version number 2 which is advisable to manage through ssh reason why we started using this software to access the remote server where the files are located. our system and this be able to manage the files, moving between the different directories of the sites and WEB stores and also executing the necessary commands to update, clean cache, activate and deactivate modules

"Putty is a simple yet powerful terminal application"

What do you like best?

There's a lot of things I like about PuTTY:

1) it comes with Portable version, no install needed for me to use it.

2) Available in all platforms - windows, mac and Linux

3) Allows me to save sessions so I can log in to it next time more faster

The most that I like is "automatic copy on selection" it allows me to copy text messages that I've highlighted making me more efficient

What do you dislike?

There's no option to save passwords to each sessions. No tabbed windows option too

Recommendations to others considering the product

PuTTY is free and no install needed, plus it does not each much resources.

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

I have been using putty to login to our network devices remotely, it does not eat that much resources so it does not slow down my pc whenever I access multiple devices

"Simple yet effective SSH client"

What do you like best?

PuTTY's clean and fast interface leads to a simplistic yet power packed application. If you know what you're looking for and how to configure your SSH connections correctly, PuTTY will be just what you're looking for.

There's also a version for CAC login called PuTTY-CAC which allows for even more functionality.

What do you dislike?

At times PuTTY can be confusing. Loading saved sessions is clunky and can be a bit tricky.

I wish there was an SFTP feature for the CAC version.

Multiple sessions require multiple windows, a tabbed UI would be a great addition.

Copying sessions is also a bit confusing, as you have the load the session, rename it, then save it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try SuperPuTTY or MobaXTerm if you're looking for a more powerful SSH client

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

We use PuTTY to connect to our application servers for deploying/logging/debugging.

"Increíble dispositivo para ejecutar comando unix."

What do you like best?

La utilidad es muy básica en lo que respecta a la capacidad; sin embargo, realiza la actividad, esa es la función crítica máxima para mí. Utilizo masilla considerablemente. Simplemente me gusta la capacidad de agregar campos de contraseña para facilitar el registro no seguro para la mayoría y la flexibilidad en configuración del consumidor Puede ser un software muy suave y transportable que se utiliza para ejecutar los comandos de Unix 2 Disponible en todas las plataformas: Windows Home, Mac y Linux 3 Me permite comprar períodos para poder iniciar sesión en el siguiente tiempo más rápido El máximo que me gusta es "reproducción automatizada en la selección" que me permite duplicar los mensajes de contenido textual que he resaltado haciéndome más eficiente

What do you dislike?

Autorización: el submenú del túnel requiere un pequeño intento de configuración. Nada, literalmente guardo un duplicado de esto en mi usb. No hay ninguna opción para guardar las contraseñas y es complicado cuando tiene más de una clase, ya que creará más de una. Inicio windows tiene algunas carencias como la pC Personalización en su aspecto visual, cosa que aún no he ido mejorando en las últimas versiones Bare mínimo UI

Recommendations to others considering the product

No hay precios, no hay problemas técnicos. Inténtelo, en caso de que realice numerosos trabajos en la terminal, no mirará hacia atrás. Hay diferentes sabores de masilla que tienen características adicionales. No se desea una instalación y es bastante fácil de aplicar. Conexión a Servidores, Conexiones múltiples en el mismo tiempo.

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

Interfaz simple y viable Mi equipo ha observado estos días que podemos permitir el shell SSH en la configuración de un host VMware y los comandos de problemas y reemplazarlo de esa manera. La capacidad de almacenar credenciales e iniciar sesión de forma rutinaria se considera una de las ventajas más importantes. Es rápido de aplicar y fácil de usar. Es fácil de aplicar, más de una máquina puede usarlo y es muy confiable.

"Best SSH Client for all Linux Platforms"

What do you like best?

Putty is the most used ssh client by windows users. Unlike linux and Mac OS, windows does not provide direct support for SSH, hence putty is required. It has got the all the tools which you may need to terminal emulation. You can connect to any type of system. It support all the authentication methods, be it password authentication or via pem file. It does not consume much memory, hence you can use multiple windows at same time.

What do you dislike?

The process which is not running in background will get automatically terminated once the Terminal connection is broken from remote system.

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

We are using it to manage our servers on Amazon AWS.

"best terminal application, simple yet powerful"

What do you like best?

I like putty the most because I can use it without even installing the software, it comes with a portable version to use.

Second, I can save my sessions (list of IP addresses and hostnames) so that I can access it easily next time.

Third, interface is customizable. I can change font type, size, color depending on my eye preference.

Lastly, there's an option to save all the logs to a txt file automatically

What do you dislike?

Nothing much I dislike about putty, only that I cannot save username and password for each session. (alternative for this would be to use SSH key)

Recommendations to others considering the product

PuTTY is free and comes with portable version unlike other terminal softwares out there

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

"Simple but useful SSH client"

What do you like best?

What I like the best of PuTTy is to being able to set a SSH client very easily and quickly, and the most important thing without installing anything, if I'm out of my office I just have to download it and get quickly into my servers

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about PuTTy is not being able to open many consoles in the same application instance, I have to launch another instance of PuTTy if I have to access two servers at the same time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have to access a server CLI from outside the office this may be the best option for being so quickly and easy to set up in any pc

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

Accessing my servers so quickly without configuring anything and just typing the ip or domain of the server and the port to be easily promted into the console

"Great SSH client"

What do you like best?

The best features are the ability to save profiles for each server I connect to, the ability to store client certs is very useful too. SCP client is excellent. PuttyGEN makes creating client certificates easy, so you can improve the security between the client and the server, instead of just relying on passwords. The display font clarity is excellent.

What do you dislike?

It's annoying when the network disconnects and the terminal then goes inactive, you can't just reconnect and carry on where you left off, so if you were in the middle of something it's then lost. The UI is looking a bit dated, but it's clear and functional, so that's just a cosmetic issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go and get it, you'll find that this SSH client is excellent and will more than likely do everything you need it to.

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

Remote server admin and PBX admin are what I use PuTTY for, it does all the terminal access jobs I need to do in one package (SSH, Telnet & Serial). The SCP client is really useful too.

Helpful?
