I'm looking for a ssh-client on windows that supports ecdsa.

There is a whish for putty, but no support yet.

Winscp is waiting for putty to implement it.

It seems to me that there is no client that supports ecdsa?

Tera Term does support ECDSA keys: http://ttssh2.sourceforge.jp/

  • TeraTerm looks very good. Even has support for solarized in the default ini file. Thanks for the hint. Feb 10, 2014 at 11:46

OpenSSH version coming with Cygwin supports ECDSA keys since… since SSH itself supports them. If you have Cygwin installation up and running, you can make a simple link or batch script to mintty /usr/bin/ssh …whatever options you might need… and have very much PuTTY-like visuals with all the power of OpenSSH. If you don't have Cygwin setup, I suggest checking it.

Also, daily PuTTY snapshots currently contain ECDSA support. (0.64 beta release does not include it.)
