      fej OpenSSH is an implementation of the SSH protocol. Putty is a GUI application for connecting to other devices via SSH and Telnet.

      ICB OpenSSH is a server for the SSH protocol and not a client to handle SSH sessions like PuTTY.

      PuTTY allows you to access OpenSSH. OpenSSH is just the protocol.
