puTTY alternatives that allow extended copy and paste
« on: August 08, 2008, 06:28:00 PM »
I use puTTY extensively. As great as it is, it does not support clipx and its extended copy paste mechanism. I can only copy and paste my last clipboard entry. Are there any putty alternatives that allow a better copy and paste mechanism with support to copy and paste the last few entries from the buffer as well?

From memory: this is quite an extensive alternative for Putty...http://www.sshexplorer.com/...both free- and pay-ware.

I've finally found my near perfect solution. Its called mRemote (http://www.mremote.org) and runs on top of putty.

1) It supports multiple SSH sessions, including saving of username and passwords.

2) Usernames and passwords are stored in a file that can be exported and moved between computers.

3) Various session entries and folders containing entries can be dragged and dropped freely to reorganize the tree. It amazes me how many SSH tools completely forget this feature!

4) mRemote is completely portable

5) mRemote is open source!

It supports copy through middle click of mouse button, but not sure about paste.

Another close competitor for a good SSH client is Bitvise Tunnelier (http://www.bitvise.com/tunnelier), but I found the interface too complicated and several features lacking (e.g. custom command support). Tunnelier's best feature is that each SSH session also opens up a GUI FTP window so that a person can drag and drop files in the background while running UNIX commands through shell in the foreground.

Not sure if this has the extended copy/paste feature, but still you might want to check it out:

From what I see WinSCP is more an FTP client than a shell prompt. Its still a good program though and I used it quite a bit but recently switched to CuteFTP. Biggest drawback of WinSCP is a lack of ability to reorganize folders (See point 3 above).
