networkn: The geek in me was going to suggest the Fork of Putty called Kitty, which we have found works better in Windows :) If you don't work in IT this likely won't mean anything to you :) 


Actually, I've worked in IT pretty much ever since I gave up building. But you lost me there. Is that a LAN\WAN in-joke?



A "fork" in this instance means that someone has taken a copy of the full source code of an open-source project, and made a new project from it, which usually has different features and/or bits that the original author didn't want/like.


So, it heads off in a different direction - much like a fork in the road does, I guess....


Specifically, there is a "fork" (i.e. copy) of "PuTTY" called "KiTTY" which has additional features.  See here.





So....... Does KiTTY use linseed oil like the original Putty? cool
