today is a happy day indeed… for nerds

my ssh client of choice .. putty has finally incorperated serial as a connection type. as one that has to connect to swithces, routers, sun servers.. all that have serial connections… i had to have multiple programs to do the work…

teraterm, poderosa, securecrt and even hyperterm if needed would be the way i would connect if i was on windows….

but last week… they released putty beta 0.59. changelog

now my putty does everything.. ssh, telnet, tunnels and now serial connections without needing .net framework 2 like poderosa does…

run as fast as your fingers will take you to the putty download page fly like a bird without bird flu and be an early adopter…

next on the list is tabbed windows… which would make putty probably the best client ever… for my needs..

poderosa has pretty much everything… i just don’t like the interface as much.. and the windows size would reset .. which think was addressed in the latest release.. but… i will need to spend some time and see what i can and can’t change… and the tweakability of it.
