You already know that PuTTY has basic features, so if you want more, take a step further and try this free and improved version. SSH administrators understand the importance of the secure communication provided by Putty whether in its original form or its Win32 version. An even more enhanced version of PuTTY is now available in way of PuTTY Tray.
