Putty is the Best Terminal Emulator
Putty is one of the best terminal emulators available today.
It supports different types of network protocols such as ssh, ftp, scp, telnet etc. In windows it is used as ssh client to connect to your linux server or for some other purpose but what will you do if you are on mac? You might be thinking, is there any software like putty for mac available?
The answer is yes. With the help of some other software s we can use putty on mac although putty is used widely on windows platform. Official versions of putty are available on unix like platforms, and now it s widely available for mac systems running osx 10.11 or higher.
Ssh is available by default in mac and linux or unix. Although you can use terminal for ssh connections still there are some benefits using putty such as other clients don t keep connections alive whereas putty does. Also it is cool to use putty as your ssh client if you are doing some cisco stuffs, transferring files, managing files on a server or whatever.
