PuTTY is a popular tool among SSH and Telnet clients. It is equipped with additional connectivity via Raw/TCP and Rlogin. It also has a built-in terminal emulator xterm, which provides an effective environment for advanced users.

PuTTY Portable includes all the same options, but contains all the settings in the same place as the program itself, so there will be no unnecessary entries in the system registry or on the hard disk. You can also carry the program on a "flash drive" and run it from there.

A distinctive feature of PuTTY is that you can use it within the legal boundaries of your country, as the program takes into account both local and international cryptographic laws.

PuTTY launches with the opening of its powerful configuration panel, helping you customize and customize your sessions and connections. You can easily select the type of connection (Raw, Telnet, Rlogin, SSH and Serial) and configure the authorization options for the current connection. The terminal section provides several general settings, as well as "line discipline" and remote printer management settings. You can also set up keyboard control, alerts and some other advanced parameters. It is possible to adjust the appearance, behavior and color of the window.

The Connection area allows you to configure low-level TCP connections, the Internet protocol version and authorization details. Once you have configured all the settings, you can control and use the computers that you have connected to. PuTTY allows you to quickly switch between different machines and supports multiple encryption algorithms: AES, DES, Blowfish, 3DES and Arcfour.

Great software allowing connections to web servers and other services like telnet. Much like the full blown version of PuTTY you no longer need to install and can run the software from a memory stick. The portable version of PuTTY has made working within a locked down office environment so much easier.
