Did you try PuTTY?

Nothing much to talk about, but I encounter people asking me about alternative SSH for Windows. I do answer them did you try PuTTY?
What is PuTTY? PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Windows and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. It is written and maintained primarily by Simon Tatham. – PuTTY Official Site
What does it means? Well, saying it’s free, it is a free and open source terminal emulator, application which can act as a client for the SSH, Telnet, rlogin, and raw TCP computing protocols and as a serial console client. – PuTTY Definition, Wikipedia Official Site.
It is safe to used it? Well so far as I know, my other colleagues used the software, and so far they have positive results. So yes, it is safe.
What about legal terms of using the software? As I see on their Official Site, there is a legal warning. It is also state there, that in other countries is illegal to use it, where encryption is outlawed. So I suggest that you should know your law in your country regarding this fact.
Why encryption is outlawed? Read this following links : Should encryption be outlawed? – by : Paul Mah, TechRepublic Official Site and Start using encryption now, and maybe it won’t be outlawed – by : Charles Arthur, The Independent Official Site. There are many more links but try to used Google for more definite results.
Note: I’m not the author PuTTY or the creator, go to their Official Site. 😀 And also I’m not held any responsibility while you used the software. So use it with your own risk. 😀
