Softonic review

A terminal emulator with its own unique features and functions

PuTTY is the best SSH/Telnet client in the world and KiTTY is a fork from the 0.67 version of that. This program is also a terminal emulator that allows you to gain remote access of another computer. If you enjoyed the 0.67 version of PuTTY, then you will enjoy this tool because it all the same features and functions, and it also has its own features such as a session’s filter, automatic logon script, a session’s launcher, automatic password and much more.

A fork, a small change, and the addition of more functions and features

This program is free and open-source just like its original PuTTY software was. It has all the PuTTY functions, which includes the fact that they both work on Windows, Mac, and mobile devices with Windows. This software is a secure terminal emulator that can emulate control sequences from VT102 or ECMA-48 and xterm terminal emulation. It allows dynamic port forwarding, remote and local port forwarding. If you visit the KiTTY website, you can find information about the original software that the developers of KiTTY forked away from. This program has over 25 extra features that the PuTTY emulator does not, and it even has two bonus features that include a light chat server that is hidden away, and a hidden text editor.

Remote access to other computers with more features

You should use this program if you like how versatile the PuTTY software was, and you like how easily it allowed to remote access to another computer. This software does the same thing, but it is loaded with tools and functions that make it more convenient to use, and makes it more secure than PuTTY.


  • More than a simple SSH client
  • Over 25 features more than PuTTY 067


  • It can be confusing if you do not configure automatic saving correctly
  • Some people may never need or use the extra functions
