When using google-cloud-sdk for windows, gcloud compute ssh will launch a built in Putty. Is it possible to specify a different default ssh client for gcloud compute ssh command?

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

  • Depends. Is putty registered to handle the ssh:// protocol shortcut? – ivanivan Jan 3 '18 at 0:13

Recent releases of Cloud SDK for Windows come with prepackaged putty executables (dir/bin/sdk folder) By looking at the source code of gcloud it seems that the use of PuTTY is hardcoded and it's currently not possible to choose another SSH client.
