If you use Putty to SSH or telnet around from your Windows machine(s) to your UNIX or Linux machines, you’ve probably yearned for some added functionality.

One of the biggest requests from anyone using Putty, is tabs!

Tabbed Interfaces for Putty

There are several projects which provide a multi-session or tabbed interface for Putty. Here are a few:

If you’re sick of using Putty and want REAL SSH for Windows, you can try one of these other projects:

SSH for Windows

OpenSSH for Windows is a free package that installs a minimal OpenSSH server and client utilities in the Cygwin package without needing the full Cygwin installation.

The OpenSSH for Windows package provides full SSH/SCP/SFTP support. SSH terminal support provides a familiar Windows Command prompt, while retaining Unix/Cygwin-style paths for SCP and SFTP.

If you want more than just Putty or ssh, and you want REAL UNIX commands on your Windows machine, you can try UNIX Services or Windows Services for Linux:

SFU/SUA and Windows Services for UNIX

Windows Services for UNIX 3.5 provides a full range of supported and fully integrated cross-platform network services for enterprise customers to use in integrating Windows into their existing UNIX-based environments.

X11 Terminal for Windows

There’s also a multi-tab X11 terminal + commands for Windows, based on Cygwin:

MobaXterm (formerly known as MobaXVT) is an enhanced terminal with an X server and a set of Unix commands (GNU/Cygwin) packaged in a single portable exe file.

Formerly known as MobaXVT, MobaXterm now includes a multitab native Windows terminal, a new X server based on X.Org for easily export your Unix/Linux display and a lot of new GNU Unix commands. You can also use some of the free plugins for extending MobaXterm capabilities!
