PuTTY

PuTTY

PuTTY is an ssh client, which you can use to log on to another computer over the network in a secured way. The difference with rlogin or telnet is that ssh provides safe authentication and communication over unsafe channels.

The software is available for Microsoft Windows and Unix-like operating systems.

PuTTY can be used from the Athena platform (in the folder 'Academic') without installing it locally.
