We need to have PuTTY (with PuTTYgen and Pageant) installed on our Windows system.

“PuTTY is a free implementation of SSH (and telnet) for PCs running Microsoft Windows”

To easily log in to our hosting server via SSH, we need PuTTY on our system.

This is the simplest and easiest solution for Windows users regarding SSH and Telnet connections.

In addition, we will later use PuTTYgen to generate our SSH Keys (Open SSH & ECDSA); and automate our login with Pagent.

If you don’t have PuTTY installed, go ahead and download it from their site.
