    Search Solar-PuTTY on Amazon.Solar-PuTTY is a free terminal emulator, serial console and network file transfer application developed and maintained by SolarWinds. It is designed to support a wide range of network protocols, including SCP, SSH, Telnet, and SFTP. It was built as an enhancement of the original SSH client called PuTTY. The key differences between this newest version and the original is that Solar-PuTTY also features a new browser-like GUI, support for multiple sessions tabs, and password management.


    SolarWinds Solar-PuTTY contains all the features of original PuTTY tool, such as variations on the remote terminal. Users can use an SSH encryption key, as well as public-key authentication. Solar-PuTTY was built to support IPv6.

    Solar-PuTTY includes an easy-to-navigate GUI based on popular browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox). This GUI can support working with multi-session tabs, quick access to the most used sessions, or defining different colors for each tab to recognize different environments (e.g. test labs, production servers, intranet).

    Solar-PuTTY was built to allow users to save their credentials for each session (including private key) for auto-login. It’s can even be used for post-connections scripts to prepare a host for immediate work.

    Solar-PuTTY can auto-reconnect to the session with a single click.

    Thanks to integration of Windows Search, users can search in saved sessions from the Windows Search button (even when the tool is down). Solar-PuTTY was also designed to support a graphical SFTP file transfer.


    The original PuTTY was developed in late 90’s.[1] SolarWinds free-tool team decided to prepare their own enhancement of the tool in 2017. Solar-PuTTY was introduced in June 2018 as another free tool in SolarWinds portfolio.[2] SolarWinds grants that all tools in this program are available for free


    Right after the release, Solar-PuTTY became the member of many “Best PuTTY alternatives for SSH clients” lists. Mar Wilson[clarification needed] recommends it: “Our recommendation would be the Solar-PuTTY from SolarWinds, as it has a great GUI, gives you many options for saving sessions, grouping them, and sorting them quickly with their Intuitive Search Functionality.”[3] The same conclusion was made by James Cox,[clarification needed] when he marked Solar-PuTTY as “a top choice” in his list.[4]
