PuTTY (though not just for Irssi!)

This page is out of date, I wouldn't recommend using the software, it's still here for reference reasons.

Update: my patch (and the others) have been applied to newer versions of PuTTY, see PuTTY+ and/or PuTTYtray (I make no claims about the quality of these new versions!)

PuTTY is a wonderful small free SSH/telnet client for Windows that supports just about everything, I've added a few things that the authors (understandably) don't want going into their main tree.

Since I'm fed up of having to restart my ssh sessions everytime I unsuspend my laptop, I patched PuTTY to disconnect on suspend, and reconnect on wakeup.

I've also applied Stephen Quattlebaum's transparency patch, Samuli Grohn's URL/Nutty patch and applied a made custom icon (should probably be configurable, I notice TuTTY does this).

I'm currently working on a tabbed 'container' for PuTTY, as I often have 15 windows open at once. No ETA.

Latest version: 0.58-dev-zeta

I've also put up a few PuTTY/screen/ssh hints.
