Tutorial 1 Downloading and Configuring Putty

This video tutorial is how to download and configure putty to connect to a linux server via ssh. This is essential for a Linux administrator and will allow you to install/configure just about anything you need to on a Linux server remotely via a command line interface.

To get putty go to and follow the links to download as described on this video.

While reviewing this video I noticed I forgot to say add a dash before load so the shortcut should be C:path puttyputty.exe -load homeserver. For more Linux server tutorials please visit and subscribe to this channel.

I did not create PuTTY. PuTTY is an open source software that was developed by Simon Tatham.
