I don't know of a working Windows SSH server (not one that I trust enough, yet, at any rate).
Therefore, I can't simply connect to
localhost on port
22 from PuTTY.
I want to use PuTTY because the alternative (the old CMD program), used by all the consoles that I have installed (such as Git Bash and MSYS) doesn't make it easy to paste anything in. You have to right click and hit Paste. Screw that.
Does there exist a feature of PuTTY that hooks me directly to the windows shell?
