PuTTY User Manual

PuTTY is a free (MIT-licensed) Windows Telnet and SSH client. This manual documents PuTTY, and its companion utilities PSCP, PSFTP, Plink, Pageant and PuTTYgen.

Note to Unix users: this manual currently primarily documents the Windows versions of the PuTTY utilities. Some options are therefore mentioned that are absent from the Unix version; the Unix version has features not described here; and the pterm and command-line puttygen utilities are not described at all. The only Unix-specific documentation that currently exists is the man pages.

This manual is copyright 1997-2017 Simon Tatham. All rights reserved. You may distribute this documentation under the MIT licence. See appendix C for the licence text in full.

If you want to provide feedback on this manual or on the PuTTY tools themselves, see the Feedback page.
