Integrating PuTTY in WinSCP

Most of the time, I use both WinSCP (Windows Secure CoPy) & PuTTY together, especially when work with Openwrt and DD-Wrt. It is very troublesome to start each program individually. So I decided to integrate PuTTY into WinSCP.

 

WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, SCP client, FTPS client and FTP client for Windows.

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Windows and Unix platforms.

I would suggest to download the portable version for both WinSCP & Putty. With the portable version, you can easily copy WinSCP & PuTTY from one computer to another computer without erase the settings.

Here is the link for partable WinSCP & Putty:
