KiTTY is a fork from the 0.60 version of PuTTY, a free SSH, Telnet, and Rlogin client that will enable advanced users to control all aspects of their network connection and file transfers. The app is open-source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.

The application sports features such as session filters, session icon, automatic login, automatic password protection, shortcuts for pre-defined commands, running a locally saved script on a remote session, etc.

The main working environment of the tool is a DOS command interface where power users can use their scripts, but the majority of the tools that enable full control over SHH, Telnet, and other protocols can be accessed via a configuration screen that has an incredible amount of tools for managing your Sessions, Terminal window, Window appearance (background, colors, hyperlinks, behavior) and Connection (data, proxy, serial, Zmodem…).  

As you can see below, KiTTY has a wide array of advanced features that can allow users absolutely free way for every user to control their Telnet and SSH connection on Windows OS, manage their sessions, set up filters, create lists of pre-saved commands, shortcuts, automatic login procedures and everything else that will make professional users smile.  Here’s the large list of features that are accessible in KiTTY:
