Putty Connection Manager

Putty Connection Manager

For those users of Putty in Windows, Putty Connection Manager is a MUST HAVE!  There’s several nice features, but there’s two in particular I just can’t live without any more.

1) Putty tabs.  Ever since I started using Firefox’s I’ve been a tab freak.  If an app doesn’t allow me to have several instances of it within the same window it bugs me.  With PuttyCM I can have tons of Putty sessions open and can easily manage them in one window.

2) Multi-window commands.  When you have several sessions open at once, you can lay them out on the screen so you can see them all at once.  This in itself is nice so you can have a log being monitored while you run commands from a different session.  The best part of this though is that you can send the same command to all the open windows.  Very nice when you have to install something on 10 servers.  I know you can use a script (and I’ve done this), but there’s often a case when you need to do stuff on the fly (a quick and dirty way) and being able to do this over all the systems at once is super nice.  Just be careful with the rm -rf *  🙂

Putty Connection Manager, get it, you’ll LOVE IT!
