Solar-PuTTY Free Tool Overview


IT pros have relied on PuTTY for years. SolarWinds has taken this beloved SSH client
and helped make it even better. Introducing Solar-PuTTY, a free tool from
SolarWinds. Using its browser-like home page, you can
see all your saved sessions in a simple and organized view. You can even assign color categories to differentiate
the servers in your lab, your office, your production site, or any of your environments. PuTTY displays all of your saved sessions
in one small window. You can only view a few sessions at a time with
no way to sort, filter, or prioritize. With Solar-PuTTY, your sessions are sorted
by most frequently used and you can search by name, IP address, credentials, or tags. Once you locate a session, just click on it
and Solar-PuTTY will attempt to connect. If the connection to the server goes down
for any reason, Solar-PuTTY will provide the reason, the description, and an option to
reconnect. Another great feature is the ability to open
more than one session at a time. By clicking the ‘plus’ icon, you can open
another tab and select another session. Solar-PuTTY offers several ways to start a
new session. You can select the ‘Create New Session’
button, use the settings menu, or type in the search bar. Once you enter a new IP address, Solar-PuTTY
will prompt you to ‘Start a Session.’ It will then create a new session for that
IP address and add it to your saved list. When creating a new session, you also have
the option to create new credentials. These credentials can be used for one particular
session, or saved and assigned to other sessions. Saved credentials are managed from the ‘Settings’
menu. Solar-PuTTY allows you to import and export
your sessions to use on multiple computers. And with a secure FTP connection, you can
move files safely between locations. With Solar-PuTTY, you can search for saved
sessions directly from your Windows® desktop, even if the application is not running. The Solar-PuTTY free tool takes PuTTY to the
next level. Save, manage, and distribute your remote sessions
more easily than ever before.
