PuTTY Reviews

PuTTY is very rudimentary

PuTTY doesn't have tabs. This is super annoying. (Asbru, PAC Manager, SecureCRT, Zoc do)

It can't use standard OpenSSH keys. You must convert them to its own PPK key format. All other SSH clients use standard keys.

To just connect to a host, the information is spread across THREE option pages:

  1. Session -> hostname and port
  2. Connection -> Data -> autologin username
  3. Connection -> SSH -> Auth -> Private key file.

This is just stupid UX. Sorry. In Asbru, ZOC or PAC Manager, you have all the login information on one page.

It's very old and you have to convert your SSH keys from the standard format into "PuTTY keys" for them to work.
