    PuTTY for Mac 2020 full offline installer setup for Mac

PuTTY for Mac is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for all platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. It is written and maintained primarily by Simon Tatham.

These protocols are all used to run a remote session on a computer, over a network. PuTTY for macOS implements the client end of that session: the end at which the session is displayed, rather than the end at which it runs.

Below is the detailed video guide to download PuTTYgen on Mac operating system. Mac OS has a built-in command-line SSH client known as Terminal. To utilize it, go to Finder and then opt for Go -> utilities from the top menu. After that find the terminal which supports SSH connections to remote servers.



However, to run PuTTYgen for Mac, the first one must have to install PuTTY. There are multiple ways to install PuTTY, which are Homebrew or MacPorts. Both alternatives will also install the command-line of the adaptations of PuTTYgen.

In really simple terms: you run PuTTY on a Mac machine and tell it to connect to (for example) a Unix machine. The app opens a window. Then, anything you type into that window is sent straight to the Unix machine, and everything the Unix machine sends back is displayed in the window. So you can work on the Unix machine as if you were sitting at its console, while actually sitting somewhere else.

This download includes the following tools:

  • PuTTY (the Telnet and SSH client itself)
  • PSCP (an SCP client, i.e. command-line secure file copy)
  • PSFTP (an SFTP client, i.e. general file transfer sessions much like FTP)
  • PuTTYtel (a Telnet-only client)
  • Plink (a command-line interface to the PuTTY back ends)
  • Pageant (an SSH authentication agent for PuTTY, PSCP, and Plink)
  • PuTTYgen (an RSA and DSA key generation utility)

Also Available: Download PuTTY for Windows
