KiTTY Review

Sven Sorensen
A fork of PuTTY with several new and requested features
A review of KiTTY by Sven Sørensen

KiTTY is a SSH and Telnet client which was forked from the ever-so-popular PuTTY project. KiTTY contains some extra features long requested but not present in the original versio of PuTTY.

With KiTTY, you are provided with some additional features, mainly to do with extra automation and better interaction with your Windows desktop such as graphical features.

As with PuTTY, KiTTY allows you to connect to Unix-based shells and it also provides automatic password saving and automated login to your system. It also provides WinSCP integration.

By integrating the code of the best and most popular SSH client and by providing additional features, KiTTY has a growing following.
