Output written to standard output and standard error end up written to the same PTY and mixed into a single data stream. The SSH server reads the output being written to the PTY and ...

From the Putty Configuration Panel, set the appearance that you'd like, such as the Font Quality and possibly other settings you'd like to have preconfigured. Then, under "Session" save this session under a name, for example "Antialiased". Change your Putty command line to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\putty.exe" -load "...

Its used locally and is never transmitted to the server. You can verify this by removing (or maybe changing) the passphrase - and you will see nothing on the server changes. The passphrase simply encrypts the private key. The private key is never transmitted to the server - indeed ideally it should never be transmitted. (only public keys which are derived ...
