Home Application Network Apps How to transfer Putty.exe's setting to other computers


Don't know why putty.exe doesn't provide easy way to handle configuration file and settings. Well, I guess there are some reasonable reason for developer, but it is definitely troublesome to transfer configuration and setting. Especially, if you have a lot of sessions that is pre-configured as network admin. Transferring configuration is only one complaint for me. However, there are way to transfer setting , so do not complain it unless you have donated some bucks.

See below procedure to complete migrating your configuration and setting. Basically, exporting and merging a s/w registry of putty.exe.

 

1. Open registry editor
