KiTTY is a compact application designed to help you use the Telnet protocol in order to connect to a remote computer. The program uses the PuTTY core and aims to improve the experience by adding new features.
Telnet is a network connection protocol that allows users to send text commands to a remote system. Although it lost popularity due to security issues, the protocol is still used by the network administrators who need to gain access to remote computers and execute commands.
This tool allows you to connect to a workstation by specifying the IP address and the connection type. Besides Telnet, the program can use raw, SSH and serial connections. The user can configure multiple connections and save the parameters in order to quickly resume the connection later.
If you need to create a secure connection, the app is able to use a SOCKS or HTTP proxy server. By default, it uses AES encryption for SSH connections but also offers Blowfish and 3DES encryption algorithms.
The interface of application is easy to understand and provides quick access to all the parameters for the current session, terminal window and connection. You have the option to customize the terminal window by specifying its name, behavior and color.
The program includes the option to run in the background in order to quickly start a session or minimize the terminal windows. The terminal window supports hyperlinks and enables you to open a link by specifying the Internet browser in the Options window.
To save time, the application includes the option to automatically execute a set of commands when you connect to the server. You can specify a single command or load a script from an external file.
You can benefit from all these features on your computer or by running the app from a removable device if you download Portable KiTTY.
