Power Duh, ummm..

Ummm, better to ask..., is putty going to be o.k. to use for my UNIX assignments in college? I seem to be on a college UNIX shell. Boy, am I dumb. O.k., I know, now. Thanks, folks, much love for being there. Blessings upon you all.

As long as you do not require a GUI and only need shell access via telnet or SSH putty will do the job just fine. I use putty almost every single day without problems and am quite happy with putty.

I also use putty for SSH tunneling and it works quite nicely.

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. It is written and maintained primarily by Simon Tatham.

Don't know what putty is? Now don't be silly!

Har!Har!Har!

putty has RTM said, is a telnet and SSH client for Win32. One of the best ones that I have used (and it is free, so it's all good!).
