PuTTY: A Secure SHell (SSH) connection utility for Windows

Tech Computer Center logo

PuTTY is a utility allowing you to make ssh (Secure SHell) connections from your Windows PC.

Frequently Asked Question

Why can't I just use telnet?
telnet is insecure by design, and can expose your password (and personal data) to the internet.
Why do I need to do this?
Uses for a terminal at the TCC include reading email with a console program and running programs on the TCC machines. There is no need to do this for web browsing or email (if you use the webmail system, or your own reader).
