Putty in Ubuntu

Yesterday I wanted to connect to the Source Forge servers. With windows, I've always used Putty. So I started googling for a port of Putty for Ubuntu. Then I realized the fact!

hee hee hee. Every great person makes silly mistakes. So now that I've made one, I too can be listed in the "great persons" list :-)

    Actually Putty does exist in Ubuntu Edgy and in Debian:

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/net/putty
    http://packages.debian.org/stable/net/putty

    I'm sure it's available in Linux for some specific reasons; But I'm not sure what they are...

    hmmm interesting !
    So sad that now I can't claim to be a great person :-(

    Possibly the reason it exists is that through the terminal accessing ssh through a different port is not so easy. I have tried this, using the : extension, and in terminal it seems not to work. However, with putty, it does.

    cheers

    derek - You can use -p to specify a port.

    ssh user@my-hostname -p 1234
