PuTTY is awsome a client program for the SSH, Telnet, Rlogin, and SUPDUP network protocols. These protocols used to run remote session in your local machine which is a great step in tech industry.
Coming to our topic, putty doesn’t give an option to save password as this helps to save your time by typing the password again and again.
There is a small workaround for those who is using Windows computer.
- Create a shortcut on the desktop to putty.exe
- Rename the shortcut to PuTTY – yourserver.com
- Right-click shortcut and choose Properties
- Modify the target similar to: “C:\users\Desktop\PuTTY\putty.exe” -load SessionName -l myuser -pw mypassword.
- Click Ok
In the step 4 use your path to putty, this is just an example.
SessionName – it’s the session name saved in the Putty
myuser – is the username for the session
Note: Do not save this if your computer is used by multiple people.
