Connecting to Servers with PuTTY

PuTTY is a free SSH client. SSH is a network protocol that allow you to make a network connection from your PC (the client) to another computer (the server). The network connection carries your keystrokes and commands from the client to the server, and carries the server's responses back to you. SSH (which stands for secure shell) uses strong cryptography to protect your connection against eavesdropping, hijacking and other attacks.‎
