I am using putty for ssh connections on my server. but it displays the server name on the title bar.

I tried changing this by going in

window --behaviour --then window title

When I start putty then it displays the custom window title but when the connections gets established then it again changes to username@servername

Is there any way to permanently change the title?

Since you used the word chnage twice, I doubt its a slang word I don't know? ;D – nixda Jan 3 '13 at 2:01
Thrice now. (And once in a place where I can not correct the spelling). @OP: Misentry in spellingchecker? – Hennes Jan 3 '13 at 18:47

To permanently change the title (or other settings) in puTTY:

  • First change the settings,
  • Then save the changes.

From your description you where skipping the second step. Which means your changes are only for that session.

i tried that even that did worked for the single sessionas well. If you click on putty then it displays the chnaged title. then it asks for username and password for the ssh. once connected then it chnages the title to username@servername. did u tried youself – user1721949 Jan 3 '13 at 2:20
It works for me. I just got up. puTTY-ied into a host and my title is My permanent title. Which is the one I set yesterday before I posted. (And yes, it is a new session since I powered my computer off in between). Did you select session you wanted to modify before pressing save? – Hennes Jan 3 '13 at 18:46
