A better Putty ?

Hi,

I am using putty to run unix commands on my server remotely from my windows XP pc but it is very tedious because I can not copy 'n' paste.

Is there another software that I can use that allows me to copy 'n' paste from window into the command line ?

For example - you guys may make a suggestion to grep -e ....

It would be nice to just copy n paste it rather than try and type it without any mistake

;-)

Thanks

Howdy,

Putty supports copy and paste... you can read about it here:

Just click the right mouse button to paste into a Putty window.

For some applications which capture the right button themselves, like mcedit, you need to Shift+right-click.
