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.

  • Which font is Putty configured to use? 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.

  • it doesn't work, I've tried it as well, but still thank you for support :)
