I'm having strange problem with my putty console. I'm establishing connection over ssh to my home computer [ windows 7 + freesshd server ]. Everything works just fine, but I'm getting this tiny screen with output, I can resize it of course, but the content is still in small box [ content doesn't resize ] I've tried to change the number of columns and rows in properties, but it didn't change anything. The same thing is with cygwin client.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Which font is Putty configured to use? – RedGrittyBrick Sep 22 '12 at 22:44

If you're using the Windows version of putty you can have the font size change or the number of rows/columns change when the window is resized: under Window there is a When window size is resized section.

If you're using *nix you may have to use wine to run the Windows version to get this feature of putty.

@iie: Also check the font settings in the category Appearance. – Ansgar Wiechers Sep 16 '12 at 15:20
