All in all this product adds much needed functionality to the standard putty. However, the latest version (2.5) has several bugs, some not so minor. I'm running XP SP3: 1) The &S parameter for logging acts as a delimiter for the entire logging pattern. Meaning the pattern: &P\putty-&S-&Y&M&D-&T.log Leaves you with a file called "putty-tmp#IP" on the desktop each and every time. 2) Logging is entirely broken when the previous issue is in effect. No matter what Logging settings chosen, when I press the "Log" button during a session the size of the log remains 0 bytes. When the &S parameter isn't used, logging works fine. 3) Can't connect if Default Settings isn't selected in the left pane. Meaning if I select a group in the left pane, I can't connect via ssh/telnet. I just get an error beep. 4) Can't modify the automated logon fileds from Default Settings. It seems that no change sticks for these fields, maybe a save button is missing? Small but important improvements that can be made: 1) Selecting multiple objects in the left pane for connecting to multiple sessions at once, or for drag-dropping several connects to groups. 2) When opening a new session to an unreachable destination the new tab appears only after the session has timed out. The tab should appear beforehand so that the user can notice whether or not he provided the wrong IP or hostname. 3) Right-to-left is poorly supported in the active sessions window. All the captions of the buttoms aren't aligned well and even the "Log" button appears to read "goL". 4) "Backup all" in the left pane should be called "Backup Sessions". This is simply because restoring is called "Restore all". This would make the functionality clearer. 5) "Backup all" uses a different dialog box than Restoring, and it's a worse dialog box since it doesn't allow the use of network paths or entering paths by keyboard. I realise that since backing up makes multiple files that you wouldn't want the dialog to accept a file name from the user, but at least allow the use to type a directory and choose a network path. This seems like a great work in progress :) Hope that you get around to squashing some bugs in the near future. Thanks!
A great tabed putty. New requirements: Make the tabed font bold, and mark the duplicated tabs with a number like the secureCRT does, now it is difficult to distinguish between different tabs. Make the tabs more compact, shorten the tab's length. Add the input box of the session name.
Thanks for the tool. It is easy to use, it has a simple GUI and it's tabbed:-) I use it many times for ssh and serial connections. Unfortunately this new version doesn't work with serial connections. I use these settings: serial line: COM1 speed: 115200 data bits: 8 stop bits: 1 parity: none flow control: XON/XOFF With the plain putty (and also older versions of putty-nd) this works. Currently i use the standard putty for serial connections and your tool for everything else:-) Thanks!
PuTTY-nd is nice and easy to use! I prefer it over PuTTY Manager or Kitty. For Xserver and X11-forwarding I prefer using MobaXterm though.
Great product. Simplifies my daily work a lot. Thank you for the great job guys..
